Why Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE)?? CRE is needed in the development of both new and existing technologies. production of commodity chemicals fuel-cells for automobiles biochemical/biotechnology processes novel processes for synthesis-gas production novel reactors (use of metallocene catalysts) reduce environmental impact by improved reactor design and operations
