4 Definition of Chemical Engineering In its simplest form, chemical design is the architecture, advance and management of a wide and differed spectrum of industrial procedures. IChemE meaning, 2005

*

5 Definition from our textbook  Therefore, chemical design is that branch of design which is came to via the examine of the architecture, manufacture, and procedure of plant and also machinery in commercial chemical procedures.  How to make a definition?

*

6 Main subjects of chemical technology  material and pre-trement  routine of manufacturing  tools and accessory  catalyst  result of other material on the process  operating problem  process flow  separation and also by-product  usage of energy  evolution of technical economic situation

*

7 Job avenues and also Industries(1) Chemical design are employed across a large selection of sector including: u Chemical and also allied assets u Pharmaceuticals u Energy u Water u Food & drink u Oil & gas u Process plants & tools u Biotechnology u Business and management u Consultancy

*

8 Job methods and Industries(2) u Chemical designers are, on average, the highest possible paid of the "Big Four". Furthermore, many chemical designers have actually found their way right into top monitoring.

*

9 Jobs in foreign countries A chemical engineer is either presently, or has actually formerly, lived in the CEO position for: 3M, Du Pont, General Electric, Union Carbide, Dow Chemical, Exxon, BASF, Gulf Oil, Texaco, and B.F. Goodwell-off. Even a previous director of the CIA, John M. Deutch, was a chemical engineer by training.

*

10 Jobs in China u Chemicals, electronic devices, petroleum refining, paper, and related industries u Professional, scientific, or technological services/firms/university that architecture chemical plants or perform R&D for chemical suppliers.

*

11 Core curriculum u More generally, chemical engineers concern themselves with the chemical procedures that rotate raw materials right into useful assets. The crucial skills encompass all aspects of design, trial and error, scale-up, operation, regulate, and optimization, and also need a detailed expertise of the various " unit operations ", such as distillation, mixing, and also biological procedures, which make these conversions possible.

*

12 u Chemical design science makes use of mass, momentum, and also power move along with thermodynamics and chemical kinetics to analyze and also boost on these "unit operations."

*

13 Chemical Engineering Today & Tomorrow The "Big Four" design areas consist of civil, mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineers.

Of these, chemical engineers are numerically the smallest group. However before, this reasonably small group holds a really influential position in many markets.
*

14 Future of Chemical Engineering u In the past, chemical engineering has concentrated on large range, low value chemical procedures e.g. minerals, oil and also gas, chemicals. u Increasingly, high worth molecular engineering is giving sophisticated commodities spawning a brand-new “molecular” design industry.

*

15 Bioinnovation u Molecular design of bio- products, tproblem design etc. u Research at the interconfront between wellness, bioinnovation and also design. u Constructing a pilot-scale facility for the manufacturing of biomolecules.

*

16 Nanomodern technology  Creating commodities “bottom-up” making use of nano-assembly methods.  Synthesis of novel nanoporous carbon products for membranes and catalysts.  Self assembly of colloidal nanomaterials.  Synthesis of nanostructured carbons for hydrogen storage.  Fluidisation and also reactivity kinetics in beds of nanoparticles.

*

17 Nanotechnology-instance  Carbon nano-tubes: incredibly strong, lightweight. – Diameter: 1.2-1.5nm – 10,000 times stronger than steel  Applications: – Strengthen structures – Electronic/optical – Hydrogen storage – Gap elevator?

*

18 Environment u Increasing ecological awareness is developing brand-new methods in the energy and sustaincapability sectors.

*

19 Future of Chemical Engineering - Examples u Hydrogen fuel 500 kilometres on 4kg of H 2 Only product of burning is water u Methanol Fuel Cells Mobile phone battery will certainly last 6 months 2 weeks power for a laptop!

20 Note:  Chemical design is not a profession that hregarding dwell on the achievements of the previous for comfort, for its biggest achievements are yet to come.
