Resource sustainability is also one of the three sub-themes of ISCRE 22 as energy, raw materials and feedstock resources will remain increasingly scarce in the next decades. Novel technologies need to be developed for utilizing a range of alternative materials with the associated new processes, for example for the production of chemicals from biomass feedstocks and for the use of renewable and clean energy sources for electricity production and transportation.
other symposium sub-themes. Chemical reaction engineering can contribute significantly in the development of innovative systems in the field of controlled drug release, smart medical devices, diagnostics and analytics, and so on. Also the discipline plays a crucial role in improving air and water quality, emission reduction, development of new materials and new personal care products, and not to forget in improving safety and its impact on equipment and process design.
