January 1, 2011 - New York, NY

From Chemical Engineering Progress, January 1, 2011, p. 3

By Cynthia F. Mascone, Editor-in-Chief

This year offers a unique opportunity to spread the word about chemical engineering. The United Nations has designated 2011 the International Year of Chemistry. The IYC 2011 festivities have started even before the official International Launching Ceremony in Paris, Jan. 27–28, and will culminate with the Closing Event in Brussels, Dec. 1. Philadelphia will play host to the U.S. opening of IYC 2011, which features a panel discussion, “Global Challenges, Chemistry Solutions,” at the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) on Feb. 1, volunteer-led chemistry experiments at the Franklin Institute on Feb. 5, and other events during the week (see pg. 51–52 and pg. 64). . . .
