“The Future of Chemical Engineering”
by Rafiqul Gani, CEO of PSE for SPEED
- Looking ahead 25 years, how do you expect your industry/research area to evolve?
- Core areas of ChE expertise are being augmented by new expertise in science and engineering at molecular and nanometer scales, in biosystems, in sustainability, and in cyber tools. Over the next 25 years, how will these changes affect your industry/research area?
- What new industries/research areas do you foresee?
- Taking into account the ongoing evolution of the professions — including the need for new modes of education; high standards of performance and conduct; effective technical, business, and public communication; and desires for a more sustainable future — what do you think the chemical engineering profession will look like 25 years from now?

*Co-organized by PSE for SPEED
PSE for SPEED (Prof. Rafiqul Gani and Dr. Anjan K Tula), together with research collaboration partners from Zhejiang University (Prof Xi Chen) and Zhejiang University of Technology (Prof Lingyu Zhu), visited Zhejiang Lonsen Group’s R&D head-quarters in Hangzhou Bay on 12 October 2018.
During the visit, Prof. Gani gave a lecture on “Smart computer aided tools for the process industry” and Dr. Anjan gave a demonstration of PSE for SPEED software. During the visit, new projects with Amino (a part of Lonsen) and Lonsen were discussed.
PSE for SPEED recently completed a second project on commercial feasibility for Amino.
