Process Chemistry and Technology Group

RSC Process Chemistry and Technology Group

The Process Chemistry and Technology Group (PCTG) is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.


  • Identify and share important scientific advances in the application of the chemical sciences with RSC members   
  • Implement best practice within the profession  
  • Help to develop the skills and capabilities of RSC members throughout their careers as they study or work in the Process Industries            


We define Process Chemistry and Technology to be the application of the chemical sciences and engineering to the design, development and support of production, process, quality and technical systems in industry.

Process Chemistry and Technology encompasses:  

  • All aspects of the manufacture of raw materials, chemicals, foods, pharmaceuticals and other formulated products and their intermediates from new product research though to quality control   
  • Chemical treatments during the manufacture of components and finished goods   
  • The treatment and handling of materials and wastes within the utilities and manufacturing sectors   
  • The implementation of regulatory, environmental and human safety standards            


Organise scientific meetings, technical visits and workshops    

  • Disseminate best practice and advanced applications in chemical technology and manufacturing industry   
  • Provide a focal point within the RSC for Control, Process, and Chemical Engineers       


We also have an online community, which is based on MyRSC, for anyone who shares our interests.
