The AIChE is a global professional organization, founded in 1908, that today serves over 60,000 chemical engineers, working in some 110 countries in disciplines spanning “energy, sustainability, biological and environmental engineering, nanotechnology, and chemical plant safety and security,” according to this week’s press release announcing the upcoming event.
As with most 2020 event, the upcoming Conference on Engineering Cosmetics and Consumer Products (ECCP) will be a virtual one.
“The 2020 Conference on Engineering Cosmetics and Consumer Products has been adapted for online presentation as a measure against the pandemic,” affirms the organization’s press release, which goes on to note that “conferences [like this one] extend AIChE’s century-long commitment to keeping chemical engineers and allied scientists informed, connected, and engaged in the latest technologies of the evolving chemical engineering discipline.”

The conference for cosmetics, personal care, and other consumer products professionals is set to take place online September 14 – 16. (Poster Session submissions are still being accepted here through this Friday, August 28.)
The event “offers a window into new technologies and approaches for manufacturing, packaging, and engineering cosmetics and consumer products,” explains the AIChE release. “The three-day conference spotlights sessions devoted to process engineering, product engineering, package engineering, safety topics, sustainability, open innovation, regulatory compliance issues, digitalization, data analytics, and more.” And scientists, engineers, and academics working in those fields are encouraged to attend.
Program highlights include a keynote presentation on Monday, September 14, from John Rogers, a physical chemist and materials scientist working at Northwestern University. Rogers will give a talk titled, ‘Miniaturized, Soft Wireless Sensors for the Skin’.
That same day Ellen Wright, a chemical engineer with Ecolab, will speak about total production plant solutions. And Nick Bizios, Director of Product Development at Estée Lauder will talk about bioprocess engineering in personal care.
Later on Monday, Sabrina Behnke, Global Product Manager at Symrise, and Magali Moreau, Principal Scientist of Advanced Research at L’Oréal, will each speak about opportunities in the microbiome skin care space.
And over the next two days of the 2020 ECCP, experts from Mary Kay, Cutitronics, Gattefosse, and Coty will speak. Find the full technical program online here and more information and a link to register here.
