Elsevier and the Institution of Chemical Engineers Announce Publishing Alliance

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(CCNMatthews - July 31, 2006) - Elsevier, a leading publisher in science and technology, has entered into a partnership with the Institution of Chemical Engineers, IChemE, to publish and create books in the Butterworth-Heinemann imprint that will reach the engineering community worldwide. Titles published under this co-branding program will cover key chemical, process engineering and related subjects and be written by leading experts in their fields.

"When you look at IChemE, you recognize immediately their commitment to excellence for chemical, biochemical and process engineering publications," said Jim DeWolf, Vice President, Publishing at Elsevier. "Elsevier is the perfect partner for IChemE since both organizations are passionate about advancing the professional development of engineers everywhere," he added. Elsevier publishes chemical, process and petrochemical engineering guides under its Butterworth-Heinemann, Academic Press and Gulf Professional Publishing brands.

IChemE is a leading international chemical and process engineering society, with a membership of over 25,000. With this new partnership, IChemE members will be able to buy any Elsevier title at a 15% discount, while the Institution will benefit from a jointly developed publishing program that will meet the needs of its membership and beyond in the academic and professional chemical engineering community.

"IChemE are very pleased to be joining Butterworth-Heinemann in a partnership that we hope will offer the best possible range of titles to chemical and process engineers worldwide. As an international organization we are happy that BH can provide our members with the service they require on a global scale and we look forward to working together to develop a wide range of publications over the coming years," said Caroline Smith, Director of Publications, IChemE.

In 2006, Elsevier will launch the series with three new titles, Principles of Corrosion Engineering and Corrosion Control; a project management guide for chemical and process engineers, and a new edition of the classic IChemE reference, Pinch Analysis and Process Integration.
