Biomass and Wastes as Resources
Zhiyu Wang
As a means of mitigating global warming, carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) is considered a potential method to reduce CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. CO2 captured from a power platform always contains impurities and purification would drastically increase the cost of capture. Consequently co-capture and co-injection of these impurities with CO2 have been considered in recent studies. This project studied the effect of impurities on the CCS chain using both experimental and theoretical simulation.

Bioprocess and Bioreactor Operation
Radhakrishnan Mahadevan
Bioprocess development for biofuels and biochemicals typically requires several rounds of metabolic engineering to meet process targets including product yield, titer and productivity, all of which impact the process economics. Recent advances in experimental and computational technologies have enabled the detailed characterization of biological systems. Similar advances in computational modeling techniques have allowed the development of genome-scale models of metabolism in several organisms. In this talk, the use of such models for metabolic engineering will be presented.

Chemistry matters — Career in Chemical Engineering
The Free Press Journal
Think chemical engineering, and your mind automatically goes on to the school chemistry lab, the picture of something boiling in a beaker and all kinds of fumes emanating from mysterious substances. And if this is really the picture that the thought of chemistry conjures up in your mind, you will have to learn more. There is much more to chemistry and chemical engineering than fuming chemicals.

Where Canada's jobs will be in 2015 and beyond
Yahoo! News
If you don't know much about Edmonton, it might be hard to see the appeal. The winters are cold and the landscape undramatic. Even local officials have had to stop calling it the City of Champions after years of disappointing returns from the hometown hockey team. But there is one enviable thing Edmonton does have: jobs, and plenty of them. Edmonton scored the highest among Canada's biggest urban centres in terms of projected job growth in a recent labour-market study by CareerBuilder.ca, the Canadian branch of a U.S.-owned career site.

Now, Google has something else to show why it's a coveted workplace: It's been named the best place to work in 2015. In Glassdoor's seventh annual ranking of the 50 best places to work in the coming year, Google took the No. 1 spot for the first time, dethroning Boston-based consulting giant Bain & Company.

3 ways to improve your engineering career prospects while you're still at uni
The Engineer
A solid degree is the foundation of most engineers' toolkits, but there are other things you can do while still at university to set yourself up for a life-long rewarding career. Joining an institution such as the IMechE or IET is one of them, according to Jon Prichard, CEO of the Engineering Council (the body that regulates the profession). These organizations may exist primarily for working engineers but they also run student branches that exist to help young people take the right first steps when starting their careers.
