The Chemical and Process Engineering division is a group for members working in the chemical, biochemical and process engineering sectors, providing CPD and networking events for engineers in these areas.
Using nanoparticles that store and gradually release light, engineers create light-emitting plants that can be charged repeatedly.
Sachin Bhagchandani is completing his PhD in chemical engineering and is looking to transition into a mentored, cancer-focused postdoctoral research position – one that draws on his wide-ranging interests and newfound experiences in synthetic chemistry and immunology.
Sharing fond memories as a student of STEM, Anne-Marie Kelleher highlights the importance of education in sparking her own curiosity for chemistry which led her towards a fascinating career. As the head of process and product development at Tyndall National Institute, she highlights how education helped shape her passion for material science and real-life, practical applications of chemistry.
Hydrogen is increasingly seen as an important element of future ‘energy landscape’ and while its production through renewable means offers great promise, it is apparent that such sources may not be sufficient to meet expected demands in the short to medium term. It is important, therefore, to consider how this ‘gap’ may be bridged most responsibly by the efficient use of non-renewable resources, writes UCD's Keelan Glennane.
As the market for novel biopharmaceutical products grow, so does the demand for productive, reliable manufacturing processes which can be rapidly developed at a large scale. Chromatography, a foundational process in pharmaceutical manufacturing has seen increased process efficiency and productivity with the extension from traditional batch to continuous counter-current operation, writes Niamh O'Connell.
The Defence Forces' Chief Officer Instructor of the Ordnance School, who holds a master's in ordnance mechanical engineering, writes about the DISARM (Disablement In Situ Alternative Remote Mechanisms) project, which offers a suite of applied engineering solutions designed to combat an array of strategically complex explosive engineering problems.
