The Chemical Industry & Chemical Engineering Quarterly (CI&CEQ), as an international peer-reviewed research journal, invites contributions of original and novel fundamental research related to chemical industry and chemical engineering and connected areas. Papers describing novel theory and its application to practice as well as those reporting experimental work, which is soundly interpreted, are welcome.

The Journal invites contributions to the following two main areas:

  • Applied Chemistry dealing with the application of basic chemical sciences to industry
  • Chemical Engineering dealing with the chemical and biochemical conversion of raw materials into different products as well as the design and operation of plants and equipment.

The Journal welcomes contributions focused on:

Chemical and Biochemical Engineering

  • Heat, mass and momentum transfer
  • Reactor, equipment and downstream processing modeling, simulation and design
  • Novel reactors (membrane, chromatographic, electrochemical reactors, micro-reactors, etc.)
  • Scale up and scale down design
  • Applied catalysis, kinetics and modeling
  • Separation science and technology
  • Particle technology and fluidization

Process Systems Engineering

  • Process dynamics, monitoring and control
  • Process modeling, simulation and optimization
  • Process design, integration, operation and intensification
  • Techno-economic analysis

Environmental Chemical and Process Engineering

  • Treatment processes
  • Environmental separation processes
  • Environmental bioprocesses
  • Environmental nanotechnology
  • Clean process technology
  • Green processes

Materials Synthesis and Processing

  • Novel physical and chemical methods of synthesis of advanced materials
  • Novel materials (micro- and nano-structured materials, composite and hybrid materials, etc.) of different morphologies (particles, films, fibers)
  • Product design based on chemical engineering tools

Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Engineering

  • Design, modeling, operation and control of pharmaceutical (bio)reactors,
  • Unit operations and process systems used in the production of pharmaceuticals and cosmetic products

Food and Bioproducts Processing

  • Plant, process and product design
  • Unit operations, process modeling and optimization in food engineering
  • Heating and cooling methods, including freezing, pasteurization and thermal sterilization
  • Non-thermal processes

Process Technology

  • Industrial biotechnology
  • Separation and purification technologies
  • Biorefining

Papers having a primary focus on pure chemical sciences such as analytical, biochemical, food, environmental, inorganic, medicinal, microbiological, organic, pharmaceutical, physical or polymer chemistry as well as natural sciences (biology, microbiology, etc.) are strongly discouraged.
Theoretical papers that do not include chemical engineering applications or papers that do not contribute new ideas or research directions to the fields of applied chemistry and chemical engineering are also inappropriate.
