New York, United States of America

Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry Meeting

Lexis Conferences greets you to the official website of International Conference on Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry Meeting to be held in New York, USA during July 15-16, 2019 with the theme: Dive towards Innovation from Experimentation to Application.

Chemical Engineering 2019 comprises of two days technical and scientific sessions, keynote speakers, oral and poster presentations, plenary lectures and roundtable discussions along with an exhibition and networking opportunities. This gathering will offer you special prospects to network with high quality research and professional from all over the world for the advancement of science, technology and fellowship.

Chemical Engineering has grown overtime in the field of innovation and science. Its applications in previous year was limited to only some core fields but now it is being applied to our common life and innovations are countless. Chemical Engineering turns raw materials into everyday useful products – the food we eat, the water we drink, the fuel we use, the electricity we use, the medicine we use etc. This means that you will find chemical engineering works in a wide variety of industries: energy, chemicals, pharmaceutical, food and environmental. The challenge is to design processes sustainably and cost-effectively with minimal consumption of material and production of waste. 

One of the huge challenges this century is the provision of sustainable energy that meets the demands of a rising global population. There is a growing need to replace crude oil with more sustainable source of energy; so much research is on-going in harvesting energy from natural sources – such as biomass – to produce fuels and chemicals that are environmentally friendly. Other grand challenges include the provision of water, healthcare and food – all being tackled by chemical engineering through innovative research and design.  

Some of the recent innovations and research have set an example to shape the future of the environment and civilization from good to betterment such as: Stretchy solar cells, Detecting light in a different dimension, Nitrogen fixation in ambient conditions, Procedure to produce fluorescent nanoparticles for medical applications in a nuclear reactor, Ultrathin and ultralight 'nanocardboard', Upgrading cheap diode laser for use in precise measurements, Crystals that clean natural gas, A solar cell that does double duty for renewable energy etc. 

The year 2018 represents the sixth year of an extended up cycle in global chemical markets - characterized by robust demand, tight supply, and strong profitability. This extended period of profitability has caused a surge in reinvestment planning activity in North America, the Middle East, China and other Asia locations. Even in Europe, thought to be disadvantaged companies are pursuing investments in new capacity. The forecast for new petrochemical investments integrated with refining could result in capacity additions that overwhelm trend line demand growth in many markets. At the same time, many risks are developing that represent potential drags on global growth. Key issues include rising crude oil prices, domestic fiscal policy and currency fluctuations, geopolitical tensions, and a variety of trade disputes. Slowing economic growth in the early 2020s represents a threat to strong chemical market conditions. As the industry rides a wave of high profits, IHSM is tracking the emergence of several trends that will reshape refining and chemicals industries during the 2020s.

During the decade of the 2020s, investors in the chemical industry will seek to balance the "petrochemical trilemma,": economic benefits of investment in the chemical value-chain, a sustainable approach to the consumption of natural resources, and offering sound environmental stewardship that is responsive to societal demands for a healthy and clean environment. The images of smog-filled air and beaches filled with plastics trash are moving local communities and political leaders to take actions that are not always the best solution to the problems at hand. The chemical industry must continue to proactively engage on all fronts - seeking cooperative, fact-based solutions to these challenges and working side-by-side with local communities and government.

In short, there are many challenges that humanity is currently facing and will continue to face in the future and chemical engineering will play a central role in tackling them.
