IChemE and AIChE announce joint hydrogen webinars and annual conference

Article by Adam Duckett

ICHEME and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) will co-host a series of webinars and run an annual conference on hydrogen as part of the alliance they signed last year.

The webinar series will be launched in the second quarter of this year and will include a session on the myths and realities of hydrogen and Its use. Next year, a joint conference on the production and use of hydrogen will be held in North America, with the UK hosting in 2026.

The two member bodies formed the alliance to support industry’s adoption of hydrogen in the push for decarbonisation, believing the safe, cost-effective, and common use of hydrogen will require contributions from engineers and scientists across disciplines, as well as from government agencies.

Nigel Hirst, IChemE president, commented: “Hydrogen is a promising energy source, and given the enormous global interest, there is no doubt we will be using a lot more of it in the future. That makes our joint work on hydrogen both important and timely, as society needs to know that the processes for producing and using hydrogen are sustainable, safe, and efficient. IChemE and AIChE have a key role in enabling this, and I’m excited about our collaborative progress.”

Alan Nelson, AIChE president, said: “By attending these webinars and by participating at our conferences, our colleagues will not only gain crucial insights to guide their paths forward in the use of hydrogen, but they will also shape the conversation around hydrogen and bolster the success of others as together we advance toward the goals of net zero.”
