The future of food and water relies heavily on the global resilience and safety of the supply chains of materials, products and natural resources including clean energy. Achieving the sustainable provision of food and water globally is driving novel innovations in chemical engineering.
Read all about how the the sector has been shaped by chemical engineers and chemical engineering from 1900 to 2020. This unique content has been constructed and curated by members of IChemE from across the world
Our members are working hard on the format and content of the webinar that takes place in July 2022
The Food and Drinks industry is going through a significant change and under immense pressure to respond to the ever changing demands of its consumers
As the Water Industry continues to face increasing pressures due to the impacts of the climate change, efforts would need to be made to increase the sector's resilience and sustainability. Chemical Engineers have a vital role to play in meeting these goals through innovation and technology developments in improving water efficiency, unit operations, scarcity and safety, monitoring and treatment, data and analytics
Chemical engineers are working to ensure that the food industry achieves a step change in the reduction of water use, and land use and with the end goal of water neutrality. This involves the optimisation of existing processes, improved understanding and the research and development of novel process solutions incorporating renewable energy options to minimise greenhouse gas emissions.
