IChemE Malaysia Awards 2021 finalists announced

2nd August 2021

Thirty-two finalist entries each have the chance to win a coveted trophy for excellence in chemical, biochemical and process engineering at the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Malaysia Awards 2021.

Winners of the six categories will be announced at the ninth IChemE Malaysia Awards, which will take place as a virtual ceremony on 1 October 2021.

Finalists include ASEAN Bintulu Fertilizer, PETRONAS Digital, PETRONAS Penapisan (Terengganu), Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, and Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM).

Many of the finalists’ projects showcase how digitalisation has been embraced to support the advancement in chemical engineering, which links to one of the three priority topics for IChemE set by IChemE’s Learned Society Committee.

Mike Cloke, who chairs the IChemE Malaysia Awards judging panel, said:

“Congratulations to all of this year’s finalists. As a learned society for chemical engineers, with a focus upon responsible production, digitalisation and major hazards, the judging panel were delighted to see how many entries are demonstrating these key areas within their work and education to help make processes, products and ultimately the profession safer, more sustainable and utilising technology for a better future for society.

“Thank you to everyone who has entered this year’s awards and your commitment to the profession. Thank you to our volunteer judging panel for your diligence in peer-reviewing these excellent entries.”

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.
