WORLD CHEMICAL ENGINEERING COUNCIL (WCEC)

An increasing world population, in a world of finite natural resources, requires ever more innovative chemical engineering to solve problems and produce new, better products. Many economic and ecological challenges of the 21st century can only be solved on a global scale. Chemical engineering and related sciences will play a key role in meeting future societal needs

To ensure a high standard of chemical engineering and related science and technology, a World Chemical Engineering Council (WCEC) was founded at the World Congress of Chemical Engineering in Melbourne 2006, Australia. Involving all regional confederation of chemical engineering and the main chemical engineering Societies around the world the WCEC aims:
  • To project global image of the profession increasing public knowledge and awareness of the contributions of chemical engineers and the industries served by the profession.
  • To facilitate global dissemination of chemical engineering technical knowledge and industrial best practices.
  • Become a resource to international organisations in providing position statements
  • To promote conservation and care of global resources, health, safety, and the environment.
  • To promote a high standard of professional ethics and conduct for chemical engineers worldwide.
  • Serve as a vehicle/forum for communication, collaboration and linkage between national and regional chemical engineering societies.
  • To promote international standards and accreditation for chemical engineering educational programmes and work towards engineers right to practice globally.

European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE)

EFCE is a non-profit organization whose objectives are to serve the European Chemical Engineering community through support of the activities of its member societies in areas of education and training of chemical engineers; through promotion of collaboration in support of common goals and for the advancement of science and  technology in general and chemical engineering in particular; through influence of the decision makers and opinion leaders on matters of importance to the chemical engineering community.

It was founded in 1953 and currently there are 20 Working Parties (WPs) and 5 Sections whose delegates and representatives come from 39 member societies representing 33 member countries. Today the EFCE represents more than 100,000 chemical engineers in Europe.



EUROPEAN SOCIETY OF BIOCHEMICAL ENGINEERING SCIENCES (ESBES)

As a society, ESBES stimulates scientific advances in the field of biochemical engineering and provides a platform for communication, education and interdisciplinary exchange in this important scientific discipline.

ESBES provides an important channel between industry and academia and fosters the cooperation of bioengineers from all over Europe and overseas.

ESBES organizes ECAB conferences in collaboration with the ECCE conferences which are organised by the European Federation of Chemical Engineering. This joint venture extends the traditional topics of Chemical Engineering to include Biorefineries, Bioprocess Engineering, Bioseparations, Biofuels, Biomaterials, Algae biotechnology, Bio-based products and nanobiotechnology. Thus, ECAB brings innovative topics and activities to ECCE in bioengineering and industrial biotechnology to respond to major societal challenges.

ESBES mission is to promote co-operation in Europe between non-profit-professional scientific and technical societies for the general advancement of biochemical engineering sciences and foster the development of biochemical engineering sciences. ESBES gathers members from Academia and Industry in active collaboration in different fields of applied BioSciences, Biochemical Engineering, Biotechnology, and Bioengineering enforcing advances in the several related engineering topics. It covers several highly dynamic fields of innovation in the industry, among them new reactor designs, metabolic engineering and synthetic biology, downstream processing, process and pathway modeling and enzyme development.
