IChemE, the Institution of Chemical Engineers, is the leading global professional qualifying body for chemical, biochemical and process engineers. The six IChemE journals, published in partnership with Elsevier, feature high quality and original peer-reviewed research which spans the range of activities and interests of IChemE’s membership, and beyond.Read more
We are delighted to share this special collection which draws together the most popular recent papers across the journals. The chemical and process industries are facing more complex and uncertain scenarios than ever before, and design and operation under such conditions is particularly challenging as explored in ‘Optimisation approaches for supply chain planning and scheduling under uncertainty’published by Chemical Engineering Research and Design.
Sustainability is another crucial topic today, and ‘Sustainable Industry 4.0 framework: A systematic literature review identifying the current trends and future perspectives’, published in Process Safety and Environmental Protection, and ‘Integrated quality and supply chain management business diagnostics for organizational sustainable improvement’, published by Sustainable Production and Consumption offer key insights into current thinking in this important area.
IChemE’s interests extend well beyond the chemical and process industries, and the food industry is another key focus area for the institution, including the packaging of food as discussed in ‘Antimicrobial agents and packaging systems in antimicrobial active food packaging: An overview of approaches and interactions’published by Food and Bioproducts Processing.
Our newest journal, the South African Journal of Chemical Engineering, has been championing key fundamental research as discussed in ‘Effect of ball and feed particle size distribution on the milling efficiency of a ball mill: An attainable region approach’.
We hope that you will find this collection, a snapshot of some of the most exciting research currently being undertaken, of interest. We very much welcome views on our selection and encourage readers to add their work to the IChemE journal family.
