Energy and Environment


This department focuses on research and education in environmental engineering science, energy systems and chemical engineering. Apparently, producing and using energy in ways that are sustainable, economical and environmentally friendly is a major challenge to society and to future chemical engineers and the goal we’re seeking in this department of Petrotex is very much related to that. We hope to create a good scientific forum for all interested ones to benefit from. In addition, we are planning to hold training courses in different countries with the aid of our professional committee members.
