About International Chemical Engineering Conference on Energy, Environment and Sustainability ICECEES 2024

The International Chemical Engineering Conference on Energy, Environment and Sustainability (ICECEES-2024) is being organized by the Department of Chemical Engineering, IIT Roorkee to commemorate 60 years of its establishment. The theme of the conference includes all major domains of Chemical Engineering, such as Circular Economy,  Sustainable and Renewable Energy, Green Processes and Transfer Processes and Computational Modeling. The conference intends to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas among people working at different levels in academia and industries. Faculty members, scientists, persons from industries and other government agencies, research scholars, students, etc., can participate in the conference. ICECEES will therefore provide a forum for all the eminent participants to showcase their research and address the emerging future challenges pertaining to the theme of the conference.

About Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee

Indian Institute of Technology - Roorkee is among the foremost institutes of national importance in higher technological education, engineering, and basic and applied research. Since its establishment (in 1847), the Institute has played a vital role in providing the technical manpower and know-how to the country and pursuing research. The Institute ranks amongst the best technological institutions in the world and has contributed to all sectors of technological development. It has also been considered a trendsetter in the area of education and research in the field of science, technology, and engineering. The Institute celebrated its Sesquicentennial in October 1996 and has completed more than 175 years of existence. It was converted to IIT on September 21, 2001, by an Ordinance issued by the Government of India declaring it as the nation’s seventh Indian Institute of Technology, an “Institution of National Importance.” The Institute offers Bachelor's Degree courses in 10 disciplines of Engineering and Architecture and Postgraduate Degrees in 55 disciplines of Engineering, Applied Science, Architecture, and Planning. The Institute has a facility for doctoral work in all Departments and Research Centres. 

About the Department

The Department of Chemical Engineering was established in 1963 with an undergraduate program in Chemical Engineering. The department grew over the years and set very high standards in teaching and cutting-edge research. Over the years, the department has supported the local chemical and process industries. The department currently has 24 faculty members and over 500 students. The Department also has high end analytical instruments like BET surface area analyzer, LCMS, HPLC, UV Spectrometer, FTIR analyzer, Rheometer, Micro-PIV, High speed camera, Raman spectroscopy etc. The department focuses research work in the broad areas of chemical engineering, such as liquid and solid waste management, green catalysis, sustainable energy, energy storage, process design and intensification, process modeling and simulation, drug delivery, transport and separation processes, process safety, CO2 capture and utilization, and biochemical and bioprocess engineering. The department runs a Center of Excellence in Petrochemicals sponsored by Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, the Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilizers, Government of India.
