Welcome Message

On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee and the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE), we are pleased to welcome you to the website for the 63rd Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference, to be held in Fredericton, New Brunswick from October 20- 23, 2013.

The main themes of this year’s conference are Resources, Environment and Energy, which are critical issues faced by chemical engineers both in Canada and around the world. Symposia/sessions are being planned on the following topics: Forest Biorefinery, Nanotechnology, Catalytic Technologies for Clean and Green Fuels, Emerging Technologies in Lignocellulosic Products and Materials, Nuclear Technology, Adsorption and Membrane Separation, Oil and Gas, Waste Water Treatment and Environment, and Process Safety and Management, all of which will be organized by multinational committees of experts in each field.

Regular programs in all aspects of chemical engineering are also planned by the CSChE Subject Divisions. An undergraduate program is being organized by our student committee to showcase the student contributions and to promote exchange of ideas for our young and bright chemical engineers. The student program will include competitions, tours, workshops and a student banquet. Students will also be encouraged to get involved in the main conference program, giving them a broader understanding of the work being done in industry and academia.

Fredericton is the capital of New Brunswick, and is an important cultural, artistic, and educational centre of the province. The city is situated in the west-central portion of the province and is one of the main urban centres in southern New Brunswick. The St. John River flows through the city and provides the dominant natural feature for the municipality. Fredericton has a network of walking trails that one can enjoy. We look forward to seeing you at the Conference!
