Catalysis and Chemical Engineering: from nanometre to kilometre

Institution Of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) : 18 May, 2013  (Company News)
Some of the smallest engines in the chemical engineering world come under the spotlight at a new conference from the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). Catalysis and Chemical Engineering is a new conference from IChemE and will look at the role of catalysis for a range of issues from securing plentiful energy supplies to protecting the environment. The Conference is being held in London, UK, on 4 June 2013.

Chemical plants can cover vast areas and cost billions of dollars to build, but many chemical engineers work at the other end of the scale to drive forward innovation and keep the process industries working efficiently.

The conference features key presentations from Shell and Johnson Matthey, and the importance of catalysis will be explored in the automotive, energy and manufacturing industries.  The event will also feature a strong speaker line-up from academia.

David Brown, chief executive of IChemE said: “Vast infrastructure projects like the new 26 unit chemical plant complex being built in Saudi Arabia at a cost of £20bn always catch the eye.

“But these projects cannot function efficiently and effectively without the contribution of chemical engineers working at the nano-level. Our new conference has been designed to bring together some of the latest thinking from researchers and practitioners, and introduce the importance and contribution of catalysis to people new to the field.”

The event will also feature the inaugural presentation of the IChemE Andrew Medal, being awarded to Chris Hardacre, head of chemistry and chemical engineering at Queens University Belfast, UK, in recognition of his contribution to heterogeneous catalysis.
