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…
