IChemE showcases climate change research

Article by Adam Duckett

ICHEME has published a collection of journal articles to showcase research published by chemical engineers on the topic of climate change.

The collection is open access until the end of the year and includes 31 papers from IChemE’s journals. Papers cover a range of topics related to climate change, including carbon capture, sustainable food processing, lifecycle assessment of biomass, and an evaluation of carbon footprint calculators.

An editorial to the collection was written by IChemE Learned Society Committee member Colin Pritchard, who said: “The great variety of papers here, the diligence and perceptiveness of the researchers, their passion for facing difficult issues head on, should give us much confidence in the chemical engineering community’s response to this greatest issue ever faced by humankind. The thread running through all these articles is the same: the science is inescapable.”
