The Korean Journal of Chemical Engineering provides a global forum for the dissemination of research in chemical engineering. The Journal publishes significant research results obtained in the Asia-Pacific region, and simultaneously introduces recent technical progress made in other areas of the world to this region. Submitted research papers must be of potential industrial significance and specifically concerned with chemical engineering. The editors will give preference to papers having a clearly stated practical scope and applicability in the areas of chemical engineering, and to those where new theoretical concepts are supported by new experimental details. The Journal also regularly publishes featured reviews on emerging and industrially important subjects of chemical engineering as well as selected papers presented at international conferences on the subjects.

  • Coverage of all basic areas in chemical engineering including catalysis, environmental engineering, energy, biotechnology, polymers, materials, process systems, transport, industrial chemistry, separations, and thermodynamics
  • Contributions from across the globe included in the Journal

  • Call for Papers: CO2 Utilization (ICCDU2021 special issue)

    The International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization (ICCDU) was established since 1991 to address urgent issues related to carbon capture, storage and utilization. ICCDU provides a vibrant multi-disciplinary discussion forum for leading academics, researchers, and practitioners to show case their recent innovations on CO2 capture and utilization aspects. The Korean Journal of Chemical Engineering invites submission for the special issue on “Special Issue for the 18th International Conference on Carbon Dioxide Utilization”.
