The predecessor of Institute of Process Engineering (IPE), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) was Institute of Chemical Metallurgy (ICM), which was founded on Oct.1, 1958. Over the past 50 years, the institute has extended its research fields from initial chemical metallurgy to current process engineering including energy, biochemical engineering, materials chemical engineering and environmental engineering. The institute formally changed its name from ICM to IPE on April 7, 2001.
Process Engineering is a discipline to study the movement, transport and reaction of substances of chemical, physical and biological conversion processes. Process Engineering involves developing process industries that provide material base for the nation, including energy, resources, environment, materials, pharmaceutics, petroleum, chemical engineering, metallurgy, biotechnology and nanotechnology.
To meet the strategic demands of innovative and spanning development, IPE invites specialists and scholars at home and abroad to join us.
