Benefits of membership

Membership resources and benefits continued to be enhanced during the year.

As members seek to improve their professional status, enhance their knowledge and network with peers, they continued to benefit from being part of IChemE as a widely-recognised professional body which demonstrates chemical engineers’ professional competence and commitment to employers, policy makers, regulators and society.

Over 1,500 members have benefited from professional recognition, earning the right to use post-nominals including FIChemE and MIChemE. Of those, over 300 gained additional registrations such as the Chartered Engineer (CEng) registration awarded by the Engineering Council. 

Knowledge Hub content more than doubled in 2022 with over 24,000 items of technical content added

IChemE Knowledge Hub

The number of items of content added to the Knowledge Hub was more than doubled in 2022, with over 24,000 items of technical content, often created by members, all freely available via a single searchable index.

Delivering news, views and jobs from the chemical, biochemical and process engineering sectors via its website and within ten issues of the magazine during the year, The Chemical Engineer continues to be a popular member resource.

IChemE published 60 editions and 21 special issues of eight peer-reviewed journals in partnership with Elsevier and the Royal Society of Chemistry during 2022, with members gaining free online access to all wholly-owned IChemE journals as well as to the IChemE journal archive.

Journal titles include Sustainable Production and Consumption, Process Safety and Environmental Protection and Digital Chemical Engineering.

With free online access to the Loss Prevention Bulletin, members also have access to 40 years of previous articles in the LPB archive

IChemE publications - The Chemical Engineer, The Loss Prevention Bulletin, and journals

With free online access for members, IChemE’s flagship safety publication, the Loss Prevention Bulletin (LPB) published six new issues in 2022, with members also having access to 40 years of previous articles in the LPB archive.

Knovel gives members free online access to over 300 books, technical references, interactive equations and analytical tools. In 2022, 25 new books were added, including: Chemical and Process Plant Commissioning Handbook - A Practical Guide to Plant System and Equipment Installation and Commissioning (2nd Edition), Process Intensification and Integration for Sustainable Design and Process Safety Calculations (2nd Edition).

IChemE members also continued to benefit from a discount on products including conferences, online and in-person training, various events and books. This included discounted access to the Hazards 32 conference, training on topics including Fundamentals of Process Safety and Practical Distillation Technology, IChemE’s bookshop and free access to training courses within the Sustainability Hub.
