As an industrial chemist be prepared to make use of your expert knowledge of chemistry and sustainability! You’ll need them for working with pharmaceutical companies, in polymer manufacturing, food science, petrochemical processing and manufacturing industries.
Industrial chemists tend to be involved in the safety and efficiency of making important chemicals and material, as well as their product development and innovation. They will create new chemical recipes to meet identified needs, and scrutinise the chemical composition of substances, study their changes which occur under different conditions, and then apply this to their end result. Optimising these processes is important, aiming to produce large amounts of these chemicals as cheaply as possible
Monitoring and controlling the environment is high up on an industrial chemist’s to-do list. They must work on the management and control of the environment during the industrial processes. Making sure everything is being done to reduce environmental damage is of paramount importance, minimising the impact their work has on the planet, working towards a cleaner and safer future.
Work alongside industrial chemists and other engineers too, to ensure optimal outcomes of your work. Whereas engineers deal with the process of transforming raw materials, an industrial chemist would look specifically into the scientific element. The chemical components and then designing a method in order to work out the most efficient way to make it is what they concentrate on doing.
