Written by leading experts

IChemE creates and publishes a wide range of chemical and process engineering books in partnership with Elsevier, a global leader in science and technology publishing. Titles published under this partnership cover key chemical engineering, process engineering and related subjects, written by leading experts in their fields.

There are over 75 books published covering a broad range of topics, and seminal works in the series include Coulson and Richardson’s Chemical Engineering and Lees’ Loss Prevention in the Process Industries.

This partnership is overseen by the IChemE Books Editorial Board which is made up of IChemE volunteer members with the following responsibilities to:

  1. Oversee the aim and direction of IChemE’s books publication strategy.
  2. Identify gaps and suggest new books to fit in the series.
  3. Suggest potential authors and reviewers.
  4. Review proposals for titles.


The full range of book titles in the series can be viewed and purchased on the Elsevier website.

IChemE members receive an exclusive member discount for use on Elsevier’s Science and Technology books, for more information visit the Elsevier website.
