Ⅰ. General Introduction

The Chemical Industry and Engineering Society of China (CIESC), founded on April 23, 1922, is a national academic non-profit social organization, affiliated to the Chinese Association for Science and Technology (CAST).


CIESC has been working on progress and development of chemical science and technology in China. By the end of 2020, 198 companies or entities and more than 30,000 individual registered as CIESC’s members. CIESC has 6 working committees and 37 professional committees. CIESC is the supervisor of 27 provincial chemical industry societies. CIESC 40th Council Board includes 184 councilors in which there are 60 executive councilors.


CIESC sponsors 4 academic journals: CIESC Journal, Chemical Industry and Engineering Progress, Chinese Journal of Chemical Engineering (English) and Energy Storage Science and Technology.


CIESC has extensive contacts with international academic organizations, and has established bilateral and multilateral exchanges and cooperation with more than 10 international organizations, such as the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), The Society of Chemical Engineers, Japan (SCEJ), German Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology (DECHEMA), The Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and Korean Institute of Chemical Engineers (KIChE).

CIESC is one of the 9 members of the Executive Committee of World Chemical Engineering Council (WCEC) and one of the 13 full members of the Pacific Asian Confederation of Chemical Engineering (APCChE). CIESC won the right to host 12th World Congress of Chemical Engineering and Asian Pacific Confederation of Chemical Engineering 2025.


In order to promote domestic and international academic exchanges and development on chemical science and technology, and to support the growth of chemical science and technology talents, CIESC will continue to do great effort on academic exchanges, socialized public service, scientific popularization, think tank consultation, discipline construction, talent recommendation and international cooperation.
