We created the Industrial Chemistry Division to:
- provide seminars and workshops for members to communicate relevant information and raise awareness of issues affecting the chemical industry
- promote networking amongst like-minded members and develop a divisional database of contacts
- provide a voice for industrial chemistry to Government and other appropriate regulatory bodies
- recognise outstanding achievement in industrial chemistry through awards and articles in our RACI publications.
Typically, industrial chemistry is concerned with using chemical and physical processes to transform raw materials into products that are beneficial to humanity. This includes the manufacture of basic chemicals to produce products for various industries including oil and petroleum, cosmetics, fragrances and flavours, pharmaceuticals, pulp and paper, textiles, water and waste water purification and plastics.
To adapt with changes in modern society we also welcome members from the many ancillary services associated with the chemical industry, such as: chemical engineering, specialist laboratory services, quality assurance and accreditation, intellectual property and trademarks, regulatory and technical affairs, safety and compliance, consulting, scientific equipment, sales and marketing of chemicals. And the list goes on.
