Chemical Process Engineering

CPE is a centre at Chalmers University of Technology. CPE promotes cooperation between industry and academia for development of the chemical engineering field. The centre includes companies in industries with specialization in chemistry, plastics, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical and equipment manufacturers.

The centre merges the educational and research activities in chemical engineering, control engineering, bioengineering, fluid dynamics, process analytical engineering, measuring techniques, and applied mathematics.

The activities focus on integrated aspects of design, control, quality, energy utilization, safety, environmental protection and operation in the chemical process industry. The centre invites Research Foundations and industry to participate in the activities proposed by the centre.
