The November issue of The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering (CJCE) opens with the announcement of the 2023 Lectureship Award winner, Sohrab Zendehboudi. “Dr. Zendehboudi has been very active in research, teaching, service, and scholarly activities, where he has made significant and award-winning contributions in Chemical Engineering with special focus on transport phenomena, energy and environment, and process systems engineering.” Congratulations to our winner!

Also in this issue is a special section honouring Dr. Krishnaswamy Nandakumar, known to his colleagues as “Kumar.” “Kumar’s impactful work spread over four decades has spanned several areas including fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, microfluidics, separation processes, process intensification, and process innovation.” You can read more in “Festschrift issue section of The Canadian Journal of Chemical Engineering in honour of Dr. Krishnaswamy Nandakumar” and “Introduction to the K. Nandakumar Festschrift Issue section of CJCE.”

November’s Editor’s Choice article is “It’s time for an update–A perspective on fuel cell electrodes” in which Andre Pin Chun Lee and ChungHyuk Lee explore “the urgent need for developing alternative electrode structures for enabling the infrastructure of tomorrow, powered by hydrogen.”

The issue also highlights the newest installment in our popular Experimental Methods in Chemical Engineering series. This month the series tackles “Data processing and data usage in decisionmaking” in an open access article that is free for anyone to read, download, or share. Check out this article to lean about the “challenges and barriers that prevent the use of process data to their full potential.”

Highlighted next for November is “Computational modelling of explosions caused by failed Li-ion batteries,” in which “a modified flamelet model is investigated” and “a novel laminar flame correlation” is proposed.

The final highlight of the November issue, “Numerical modelling of rotating packed beds used for CO2 capture processes: A review” presents a comprehensive assessment of the current landscape of CO2 capture, “culminating in practical insights…and targeted suggestions to bolster rotating packed beds in varied industrial and commercial CO2 removal applications.”

All this and more can be found in the November issue of the CJCE, so go on and take a look.
