Technical policy

Chemical engineers can, will and must play a role in meeting and addressing these challenges facing humanity today. There is no single, one-size-fits-all solution but a range of processes, technologies and strategies that will help achieve more sustainable living in the 21st Century.

IChemE welcomes ideas and proposals that may help raise the profile of the chemical engineering profession in its mission to improve sustainability, enhance process safety and deliver a better quality of life through innovative processes and products.

Following a consultation exercise with its members, employers, allied organisations and other stakeholders, IChemE published its reviewed technical policy Chemical Engineering Matters in 2013. The document is not prescriptive; rather it sets out a wide range of options for consideration by the international chemical engineering community.

IChemE envisages work programmes which respond to the themes within the technical policy.These  may take the form of technical events, policy activities, training and development initiatives and partnership and collaboration with other organisations to advance and promote chemical engineering worldwide.
