SACEC2021 is back on!

The South African Chemical Engineering Congress organising committee are most pleased to announce that the Congress, which was postponed in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, is now scheduled to take place in July 2021.
After much deliberation and planning, and with your safety and well-being in mind, the committee has opted for an online congress format. This is a new and exciting live, interactive platform which will give delegates all the experience of a global congress, but with no risk to their health.
The online platform provides the following arenas for delegates to engage with:

  • Main Stage with international keynote speakers
  • Breakaway rooms for presentation of papers
  • Networking and social lounges where delegates can meet and interact
  • Exhibition space where delegates can interact with sponsors and industry players

The Congress will also meet CPD requirements for attendance at the online forum.
The current website is under construction to accommodate the 2021 roll-out and for this reason all profiles and emails will be temporarily suspended. Please do not be concerned about your profile and your academic content if you have already created one on the sacec2020 website, as this is all safely stored and will be unaffected by any changes to the website development.
You will receive an email announcing when the revised site is active and what to do to proceed with submissions, editing and registrations for the 2021 Congress.
The SACEC organising committee has taken the decision, as we are entering a new year, to open access for new Abstract submissions to be considered for the July 2021 Congress.
We are seeking technical content for The South African Chemical Engineering Congress 2021 (SACEC 2021) which will take place in July 2021 via an online platform.
Both presenting and poster slots are available. The dates for new Abstract Submissions will be announced in January 2021.
The congress will be CPD accredited. The proceedings will be fully peer-reviewed, will have an ISSN and will conform to all DOHET requirements for accreditation.
Register and submit your 200-word abstract at when submission open in January 2021.
SACEC 2021 aims to bring engineers and scientists from around the world together in the hopes of creating real-world solutions to global issues.
SAIChE is a professional society in South Africa dedicated to advancing the science and the practice of chemical engineering. Our aim is to promote high standards in the profession by enhancing the professional competence of its members.
The 21st century is likely to be the most profound for humankind. As we hurtle forward, there are clear signs that never before have we had so much impact on our planet.
As engineers and scientists our contribution to that impact is more profound than average. Our theme for this congress, Entering the Anthropocene, provides a forum to consider the possibilities of this century.
How will we utilise our skills in the Anthropocene period, to continue to improve the lives of all, whilst being cognisant of and reducing our impact?
Abstracts are invited to be submitted online under one of the below categories:
+ Environmental Process Engineering
+ Metallurgical Process Engineering & Coal Technology
+ Reaction Engineering
+ Separation Technologies
+ Chemical Engineering Education
+ Process & Material Synthesis
+ Fluorine Chemistry
Please plan and prepare your submissions now to maximise the reviewing and editing time available once our new website is launched.ACEC2020 Organising
Happy Holidays to you and your families from the SACEC organising committee.
