2 Chemical engineering is…? Combining math, physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering to solve a wide range of problems in a safe and economical fashion. Chemical engineers turn new advances in chemistry, materials science, and biology into large scale practical realities in the everyday world. What do Chemical Engineers do? Chemical engineers are directly or indirectly responsible for - the production of the fuel we burn - the food we eat - the purification of water and air - the recovery and use of raw materials. - create new chemical processes - efficient operation of industrial plants Energy/Fuels Biofuels Prof. Rick Mallinson Improved oil & natural gas recovery Alternative energy sources Prof. Lance Lobban Prof. Daniel Resasco Water purification UV Degradation of pollutants Prof. Jeffrey Harwell Prof. John Scamehorn Health Care Tissue Engineering New Drugs and Drug Therapies Prof. Roger Harrison Prof. Vassilios Sikavitsas Prof. Peter Heinzelman - Protein Engineering Biomedical Research White Blood cell rolling During inflammation Prof. Matthias Nollert Prof. Ed O’Rear III Prof. David Schmidtke Clot Dissolution Biosensors
