Chemical and process engineering is a discipline that has significant influence for numerous areas of technology. In broad terms, chemical and process engineering relies on the main foundations of chemistry, physics, mathematics, and economics to efficiently conceive and design processes to produce, transform and transport chemicals, materials, and energy.
Bioprocess engineering and its associated fields have a great contribution on the improvement of human quality of life. From the production of foodstuffs and daily commodities, these fields become one of the most innovative technologies for humankind. Due to the increasing detailed understanding of cellular processes, production strains can now be optimized. In the development of biotechnology, by combining this area with modern bioprocesses, a variety of bulk and fine chemicals as well as pharmaceuticals can be produced efficiently. Primarily, bioprocess engineering combines biotechnology and engineering for the manufacturing of materials from renewable feedstocks as well as involving organism cell tissues molecular component. This field includes fundamental biomolecular research on proteins, enzymes and microbes, as well as work on biosensors, bioseparations and bioreactors. Applications include food processing and preservation; pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and sweetener production; air and wastewater treatment; bio-based structural motifs for supramolecular architectures; microfluidics for bioreactors and DNA chips; bioenergy; and applications in the pulp and paper industry.
