Webinar: Chemical Engineering for Sustainable Food and Water - Feast or Famine?
  • Date From 13th July 2022
  • Date To 13th July 2022
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 08:30 BST. Duration 1 hour 30 minutes.


The Food and Water industry is going through a significant transition to respond to the ever changing requirements of the consumers whilst developing a sustainable food-water-energy matrix and chemical engineers play a lead role in this transition.

Achieving the sustainable and equitable distribution of food and water resources worldwide will require broad social consensus and government support. Chemical engineers will play a major role in the realisation of key solutions and have an opportunity to be involved in a policy shift to reassess our food and water systems for a resilient future.
