About Us


Established on October 1, 1958, the Institute of Process Engineering (IPE) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) (formerly the Institute of Chemical Metallurgy) proposed using chemical engineering theories to strengthen metallurgical processes, thus making important contributions to the metallurgical industry. With the development of the times, the Institute has extended its research scope into such fields as energy chemical industry, biochemical engineering, material chemical industry, resources/environment engineering, etc. In 2001, the Institute of Chemical Metallurgy was renamed the Institute of Process Engineering, which is a historic leap from focusing on chemical metallurgy to becoming a leader in process engineering…

From the Director

The year of 2021 is the first year for China to achieve its long-range objectives through the year 2035. We will continue to make use of our innovative wisdom and actions, and spare no effort to carry out strategic, pioneering and forward-looking major technological research and basic research of common science to support common human needs and lead the development of emerging industries. "The road lies beyond the clouds, beautiful Spring follows the endless stream," an ancient Chinese poet wrote. On behalf of the leadership of the Institute of Process Engineering, I would like to extend my sincerest greetings and heartfelt thanks to all employees, students, retirees and their families, as well as to all colleagues from all walks of life that have provided potent support for the development of the Institute. In 2021, let's work hard together to make our dreams come true, share weal and woe, and look forward to a brighter future!
