Chemical Engineers have used their technical expertise to contribute to modern society in many ways. The contributions range from engineering the process to mass produce steel to developing fuel cell technology which made the moon landings possible to growing penicillin in a large enough scale to save millions of lives. However, the places where Chemical Engineers can contribute the most are outside of the areas governed by phase equilibrium and mass/energy balances. These final contributions are required that's sure the life changing impacts of discoveries made by Chemical Engineers are fully realized.
