Plaudits for European chemistry leaders

The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) has welcomed the election of two of its Fellows to key roles in the European chemical engineering community.

Professor Rafiqul Gani of the Technical University of Denmark has been elected to succeed past IChemE president Richard Darton OBE as president of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE), from 1 January 2014.  Professor Gani, who is director of the computer aided process engineering centre at the University, is currently the Federation’s scientific vice president.

Professor Michael Considine has been elected as the Federation’s executive vice president, also from 1 January 2014, succeeding Wridzer Bakker of AkzoNobel. Prof. Considine is professor of process safety and loss prevention at the University of Sheffield, having joined the university in 2012 following a career in the international energy industry. He is a major contributor to IChemE’s process safety community.

The federation brings together some 40 organisations from across Europe concerned with chemical engineering. IChemE is the largest organisation and administers the Federation in conjunction with the German organisation DECHEMA and the French Société Française de Génie des Procédés.

Commenting on the appointment, IChemE’s chief executive David Brown said: 'These appointments are a further example of the vital contribution IChemE Fellows play in advancing chemical engineering around the world and ensuring that knowledge and experience are effectively shared for the benefit of all.'
