IChemE launches new Carbon Capture journal
4th August 2021
Carbon Capture, Science and Technology is the title of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE)’s new journal covering all aspects of carbon capture research.
Aiming to be the leading peer-reviewed journal specifically for carbon capture research and technology development, Carbon Capture, Science and Technology (CCST) provides an important platform for the publication of research countering some of the challenges identified in IChemE’s position on climate change.
This latest journal in IChemE’s portfolio focusses on publishing top-quality content looking to ensure that future generations live in an increasingly carbon-neutral environment, and as such input from a diverse range of disciplines is encouraged.
Published in partnership with Elsevier, CCST will be free to access and for the first year the Author Processing Charge (APC) will be waived, highlighting a commitment to ensure maximum exposure for authors.
Editor-in-Chief, Professor Chunfei Wu, Queen's University Belfast, said:
“Carbon capture science and technologies are vital for a green and sustainable future. Technological advances in this area will spearhead our campaign for net-zero carbon emission to combat climate change by neutralizing the negative impacts from using fossil fuels, which are anticipated to remain a key energy source in the next 50 years. CCST is the first fully open access journal in its field and will provide a unique platform for international scholars to disseminate cutting-edge high impact research in the broad field of carbon capture.”
Neil Blundell, Deputy Chair of IChemE’s Learned Society Committee and Subject Area Lead for Energy, said:
“Recent events, such as the flooding in Germany and China, have shown us how climate change is impacting more and more on the world. There is an urgent need to focus globally on developing ways to mitigate the damage that is already occurring due to industrialisation, as well as to prevent further damage from unstructured development worldwide.
“Chemical, biochemical and process engineers are soundly equipped to provide assistance and direction in combatting the causes of climate change. The further development of carbon capture and storage processes is a key arm of the fight to restore balance in the atmosphere whilst enabling responsible production.
“IChemE aims to take a lead role in the battle to tackle climate change and this new journal will give members, chemical engineers across the world and others in the technical community the ability to share expert knowledge with their peers. I very much look forward to reading the wide range of topics presented in the journal.”
Authors are encouraged to submit papers for review ahead of publication in the journal as well as for two Special Issues: New Trends in Membrane Technology for Carbon Capture and Solid Sorbents for Carbon Capture

What is chemical engineering?
Chemical, biochemical and process engineering is the application of science, maths and economics in the process of turning raw materials into everyday, and more specialist, products. Professional chemical engineers design, construct and manage process operations all over the world. Oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, food and drink, synthetic fibres and clean drinking water are just some of the products where chemical engineering plays a central role.
The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) advances chemical engineering's contribution worldwide for the benefit of society. We support the development of chemical engineering professionals and provide connections to a powerful network of over 33,000 members in more than 100 countries.
We support our members in applying their expertise and experience to make an influential contribution to solving major global challenges, and are the only organisation permitted to award Chartered Chemical Engineer status and Professional Process Safety Engineer registration.
