The American Institute of Chemical Engineers will host the 3-day event, showcasing the latest personal care and beauty formulation trends, engineering innovations, and packaging and manufacturing technologies.

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.”
