Chempreneurs : Hold On !!

Unfortunately, employment market for chemical engineers has been nearly saturated worldwide , in which short-term contracts have become the norm for companies within chemical product and chemical proJect value chains

That's why you -my chemical collegues- need to visualize chemical product value chain as well as chemical proJect value chain in an effort to pursue clear opportunities , therefore stay away from "motivational hype" which has been witnessed alot in business incubators , though we are engineers !!

Here you will find brief descriptions, industrial synthetic routes, and simplified process diagrams to visualize chemical value chain

Another critical aspect, you -my chemical collegues- need to be aware of "academic hype" , because economic feasibility of chemical research papers have to be evaluated in order to provide technical solutions , not to be pessimistic , there has been reseach innovations in chemical process design yet all are process improvements rather than breakthroughs

Important to mention here, be mindful about profitable niche for chemical engineers ; defence business !!

Please listen to this podcast by Patryk Szafran as he briefly illustrates chemical proJect value chain and expectations from an engineer's perspective

Normally, chemical start-ups are sorted as below :

  • service-based : an engineer provides services such as feasibility analysis, market research, process simulation, health and safety, consultation

  • product-based : an engineer develops products which are predominantly small-scale such as water-treatment filters, micro-reactors, software product

  • process-based : an engineer -academic- researches for process improvement, secures patents, lobbies for commercial-scale approach as in catalysis

Please follow on twitter to stay informed about recent start-ups
