The European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE). Also known as: Fédération Européenne du Génie Chimique and Europäische Föderation für Chemie-Ingenieur-Wesen. An association of professional societies in Europe concerned with chemical engineering.[1] It was formed in Paris on 20 June 1953 with 18 societies in 8 countries.[2] India was the first non-European member in 1956 and Czechoslovakia the first Eastern European one in 1966.[2]

As of May 2013, it has 39 member societies in 30 countries[3] joining 162000 individual chemical engineers.[2] (Some countries have more than one member society). The EFCE passport programme allows members of one society some of the benefits of membership in other societies when travelling abroad, particularly for conferences.[2]

It has a set of 21 Working Parties and 5 Sections comprising about 1000 industrial and academic experts on different subjects who meet to facilitate international cooperation and progress in their specialist areas.[4] The Working Party on Education[5] has published documents on the Bologna process.

The Secretariat is jointly administered by IChemE (UK), DECHEMA e.V. (Germany) and Société Francaise de Génie des Procédes (France).[1] The current president (1 January 2014 to 31 December 2016) is Professor Rafiqul Gani of the Technical University of Denmark.[1]

News of the EFCE is published in Chemical Engineering Research and Design. Official meetings are usually held in association with the two series of European congresses known as ECCE [1] and CHISA [2].
