Low-cost energy and zero emissions: chemical engineering has the solutions

Can we have it all? A future with zero carbon emissions while improving chemical processes in factories for growing our food that also don’t put anyone at risk?

The new journal Frontiers in Chemical Engineering with its outstanding Editorial Board will be the place to find the answers to these questions.

Discover Frontiers in Chemical Engineering

Prof. Fengqi You of Cornell University, Field Chief Editor of Frontiers in Chemical Engineering also leads the specialty Computational Methods in Chemical Engineering.

“I expect this journal to become one of the major players in the open-access chemical engineering domain with the excellent quality of support by the journal staff, publisher, professional reviewers, and editors.”

Prof You posits that energy and sustainability problems we’re facing today won’t be solved without the new developments in energy systems, environmental solutions, medicine, biotechnology, microelectronics, advanced materials, consumer products and manufacturing that chemical engineering provides.

“It is the chemical engineer’s duty to look for theoretical and technological solutions to urgent challenges facing society,” he says.

How can chemical engineering tackle climate change?

Chemical engineers are developing renewable energy technologies to replace fossil energy and investigating CO2 capture systems to reduce its atmospheric concentration and prevent arctic sea ice volume decrease.

Prof You points out that integrated technological platforms coupled with holistic systems analytics are more likely to solve this kind of problem than one single technological solution.

Who else leads Frontiers in Chemical Engineering?

Frontiers in Chemical Engineering currently hosts four other specialties.

Prof. Martino Di Serio of the University of Naples Federico II is the Specialty Chief Editor of ‘Chemical Reaction Engineering’.

Prof. Antoni Sánchez of the Autonomous University of Barcelona is the Specialty Chief Editor ‘Environmental Chemical Engineering’.

Prof. Xinwen Guo of the Dalian University of Technology is the Specialty Chief Editor of ‘Catalytic Engineering’.

Prof. Eric Favre of the University of Lorraine is the Specialty Chief Editor of ‘Separation Processes’.

Frontiers in Chemical Engineering will publish rigorously peer-reviewed research on all topics related to chemical engineering. While chemical engineering brings a number of subtopics together, collaborative research across all specialty areas is highly encouraged and supported. This multidisciplinary open-access journal is at the forefront of disseminating and communicating scientific knowledge and impactful discoveries to industry, academia, consulting, law, medicine, finance, and other fields.

Inaugural article collections in Frontiers in Chemical Engineering include:

Frontiers journals also consistently rank among the world’s most-cited in their fields and in the top Impact Factor and CiteScore percentiles
