IChemE’s “Serving Society” Premieres On YouTube Channel

Jan. 21, 2022
IChemE and ITN Productions Industry News launch a new co production, “Serving Society.”

To mark their centenary year, IChemE is partnering with ITN Productions Industry News to produce “Serving Society,” a program looking at the role of the chemical engineer and how the sector is addressing some of society’s biggest challenges. Anchored by presenter Sharon Thomas, “Serving Society” features interviews, news and sponsored profiles filmed at the ITN Productions Industry News’ London studio and around the U.K. Jon Prichard, IChemE chief executive, and Jane Cutler, IChemE president, join Thomas to discuss how chemical engineering is addressing climate change and sustainability, what the future looks like for the sector and how IChemE reportedly is encouraging more women into the profession.

The program also showcases films from businesses and organizations such as Atkins, an engineering and project management consultancy leading water sector sustainability, and DEKRA, a global safety, security and sustainability company providing technical safety and human reliability products to industrial operators to reduce their risk of serious accidents.

“Nucleargraduates” is a graduate development program led by the people and skills organization Energus in partnership with other nuclear sector employers, enabling engineers and scientists to be the leaders of tomorrow in the nuclear industry.

Students at Imperial College London are getting hands on experience learning how to tackle climate change via a carbon capture plant within the Department of Chemical Engineering. KBC is supporting their clients’ efforts to address climate change and sustainability, and reporter Selina Downes visits KBC’s head office to find out more about how decarbonization is driving industry change. 

A reporter-led film with Loughborough University explores how the next generation of chemical engineers will solve emerging challenges around post-Covid recovery, net zero and digitalization, and Penman Consulting highlights how they help businesses with a team of specialist scientists, regulatory experts and IT professionals using innovative approaches. A film with the Energy Safety Research Institute at Swansea University highlights how they are leading the RICE initiative using new and demonstrable technologies that allow for CO2 to be used in an environmentally friendly way, from plant feed to pharmaceuticals.

The program will premiere on the IChemE YouTube channel on January 25, 2022 to mark the start of IChemE’s centenary year. For more information, visit: www.icheme.org
