The European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE), also known as Fédération Européenne du Génie Chimique and Europäische Föderation für Chemie-Ingenieur-Wesen, is an association of professional societies in Europe concerned with chemical engineering.It was formed in Paris on 20 June 1953 with 18 societies in 8 countries. India was the first non-European member in 1956 and Czechoslovakia the first Eastern European one in 1966.
As of November 2016, it has 38 member societies in 29 countriesjoining 162000 individual chemical engineers. (Some countries have more than one member society). The EFCE passport programme allows members of one society some of the benefits of membership in other societies when travelling abroad, particularly for conferences.
It has a set of 20 Working Parties and 5 Sections comprising about 1000 industrial and academic experts on different subjects who meet to facilitate international cooperation and progress in their specialist areas.The Working Party on Education has published documents on the Bologna process. The working party on Characterisation of particulate systems (ChOPS ) is working closely with authorities and analyses the influence of particles in combination with challenges like the Dieselgate.
The Secretariat is jointly administered by IChemE (UK), DECHEMA e.V. (Germany) and Société Française de Génie des Procédés (France). –) is Dr Hermann J. Feise of BASF.The current president (1 January 2018
News of the EFCE is published in Chemical Engineering Research and Design. Official meetings are usually held in association with the two series of European congresses known as ECCE and CHISA .
Chalmers University of Technology is a Swedish university located in Gothenburg that focuses on research and education in technology, natural science, architecture, maritime and other management areas.
Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering that uses principles of chemistry, physics, mathematics, biology, and economics to efficiently use, produce, design, transport and transform energy and materials. The work of chemical engineers can range from the utilisation of nano-technology and nano-materials in the laboratory to large-scale industrial processes that convert chemicals, raw materials, living cells, microorganisms, and energy into useful forms and products.
The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) is an independent professional association for civil engineers and a charitable body in the United Kingdom. Based in London, ICE has over 93,000 members, of whom three-quarters are located in the UK, while the rest are located in more than 150 other countries. The ICE aims to support the civil engineering profession by offering professional qualification, promoting education, maintaining professional ethics, and liaising with industry, academia and government. Under its commercial arm, it delivers training, recruitment, publishing and contract services. As a professional body, ICE aims to support and promote professional learning, managing professional ethics and safeguarding the status of engineers, and representing the interests of the profession in dealings with government, etc. It sets standards for membership of the body; works with industry and academia to progress engineering standards and advises on education and training curricula.
In the field of engineering, a chemical engineer is a professional, who is equipped with the knowledge of chemical engineering, works principally in the chemical industry to convert basic raw materials into a variety of products, and deals with the design and operation of plants and equipment. In general, a chemical engineer is one who applies and uses principles of chemical engineering in any of its various practical applications; these often include 1) design, manufacture, and operation of plants and machinery in industrial chemical and related processes ; 2) development of new or adapted substances for products ranging from foods and beverages to cosmetics to cleaners to pharmaceutical ingredients, among many other products ; and 3) development of new technologies such as fuel cells, hydrogen power and nanotechnology, as well as working in fields wholly or partially derived from chemical engineering such as materials science, polymer engineering, and biomedical engineering.
Julia Elizabeth King, Baroness Brown of Cambridge, is a British engineer and crossbench member of the House of Lords, present Chair of the Carbon Trust and was the Vice-Chancellor of Aston University from 2006 to 2016.
The Society for the Environment (SocEnv) is an umbrella body for environmental organisations in the UK. Its primary function is the licensing of its member institutions to confer chartered status on sustainability and environmental professionals worldwide. It was established in response to the need to encourage the highest levels of professionalism in the field of sustainability.
The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) is a global professional engineering institution with over 37,000 members in over 100 countries worldwide. It was founded in 1922 and awarded a Royal Charter in 1957.

The Société Française de Génie des Procédés or SFGP is a French organization for chemical engineers. It is a member of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering and acts as joint Secretariat, and of la Fédération Française pour les sciences de la Chimie (FFC). It publishes a technical journal "Récents progrès en Génie des Procédés", and news for members "Procédique", and organizes a congress every alternate year. As of 2014 its membership is in excess of 600.
The Chemical Engineer is a monthly chemical engineering technical and news magazine published by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE). It has technical articles of interest to practitioners and educators, and also addresses current events in world of chemical engineering including research, international business news and government policy as it affects the chemical engineering community. The magazine is sent to all members of the IChemE and is included in the cost of membership. Some parts of the magazine are available free online, including recent news and a series of biographies “Chemical Engineers who Changed the World”, although the core and the archive magazine is available only with a subscription. The online magazine also has freely available podcasts.
