The ChemEng Evolution Futures group undertook extensive and wide-ranging interviews in 2021 with leading industrialists, academics, and social scientists to help shape the view of what Chemical Engineers will contribute to the future society. We’re pleased to be able to share some of the highlights of these interviews with you, they’re kindly reproduced with the permission of the individuals concerned. We hope that they will create some interesting comments and debate. Please note that the views expressed are those of the individuals interviewed and not necessarily those of IChemE.
