This is a great blog in town discussing about chemical engineering. It is almost like this blog of mine. It is run by a chemical engineer, Mr. Barat, from India.
His blog is continuously sharing about chemical industries, pharmaceuticals, refinery, power plant & offshore. It is an alternative learning platform for get lot of updated knowledge about chemical, mechanical, Instrumentation & HSE.
Upon visiting this blog, I can clearly see 5 tabs on the top of the header, that shows the main topic being discussed which are Instruments, Piping, Mechanical, Process and Environment & Safety. All of these are crucially imperative for chemical engineers.
Mr. Bharat, who is 31 years old now, started this blog in 2011. He graduated a university in India. He is now a Panel officer in Refinery and have vast experiences in chemical engineering related industry.
I received an email last week congratulating me because my blog has been selected as the Top 10 Chemical Engineering Blogs in the internet.
The email came from Feedspot.com.
I am not really aware of what is Feedspot but they have somehow acknowledged my Chemical Engineering World blog. Thanks Feedspot.
Then I checked the link that they sent to me and saw the top 10 listed blogs and websites. I was very shocked to see that my blog is at no. 3 position after AiChe and IChemE website. That's pretty cool. That means i am in the Top 3 actually....
I hope i can continue share great, awesome and relevant information related to Chemical Engineering to our community :)
As a Chemical Engineering Student or Chemical Engineer, I believe that you are very much closely attached with your work place. This is actually your facility, plant etc. This is where you learn and practice Chemical Engineering. It's quite challenging, if you are not sure how to play the game and what you are dealing with. Sometimes, wrong decision can be very costly. You don't want bad thing happen to your facility. You definitely want the best for your facility, correct?
But the question is how to do that? How to make your facility operating at its optimum capacity?
Well, here are five things you can do fast to make a huge impact on your sustainability effort.
Sustainability is the IN THING nowadays. It is very important. It is about more than checking a box. It’s about making critical decision that will have a positive and lasting impact on your workplace. From green building certification to sustainable shipping, we are going to share five eco-conscious things you can do to save money in your workplace.

The 3rd quarter of 2018 saw that Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), my work place for the past 10 years experienced a major restructuring in its organization. I was previously in the Faculty of Chemical and Energy Engineering (FCEE), but after the synergy restructuring, it is now no longer a faculty, but a school. It is now known as the School of Chemical and Energy Engineering (SCEE).
What happen was all 6 engineering faculties were merged into 1 huge engineering faculty, called "Faculty of Engineering" Under the Faculty of Engineering, there are School of Chemical & Energy Engineering, School of Electrical Engineering, School of Civil Engineering, School of Mechanical Engineering, School of Biomedical Engineering and School of Computing.
As a result, our official website also changed. No need to know the old official website domain, I will just let you know the new one.
Freshly released from the oven. My VERY FIRST BOOK.
NOW OPEN FOR SALE!
ONLY HERE IN FB... This is not offered in other platform yet.
Special price for October 2018 :)
Ramblings of A Chemical Engineer - the blue book
There is a lot to share, but it’s impossible to include everything in the book. I’m glad to have experienced chemical engineering in three different areas; research; oil and gas; and oil and fats. Each area has its own challenges, advantages and uniqueness. Being very vague about the chemical engineering industry during my student life urged me to improve the situation. Wouldn’t it be nice if somebody can tell and share what they can expect from the industry? It will be some sort of a chemical engineering informal education for the students and other junior engineers. That is why I progressively and continuously share some of my experiences in this book. I sincerely hope it can provide at least some useful information for fellow young chemical engineers and chemical engineering students. I believe it’s a good thing if other professional and practicing engineers out there can do the same for others to learn. It will be a great contribution.

"I read Zaki’s writings from 2008, it has been 10 years that I am following his interesting web based publications. There is always something to learn from his writings and more importantly those are not in standard text books. Zaki is one of the rare chemical engineering professionals who understand the value of dissemination of knowledge to public as well as young chemical professionals. Generally in traditional engineering fields such as chemical and process engineering, knowledge is being transferred one-to-one which is quite slow and inefficient. However, effort of Zaki and such knowledge sharing professionals will change the eco-system in chemical engineering for good!"
"Ramblings of A Chemical Engineer! The title says it all. It is a compilation of wonderful stories of life as a student and chemical engineer. Zaki has managed to shine a light on chemical engineering world by sharing good stories, wonderful experiences, topical issues and much more. And all this in an entertaining way! Thank you Zaki, for putting your experiences ‘in word’ so many of us can learn, get inspired, and be motivated by your pen!"
- Dr. Aziatul Niza Sadikin, School of Chemical & Energy Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia
"Ramblings of A Chemical Engineer is a good book which features the real life experience sharing by Zaki & indeed beneficial to students, young engineer or academics who have not had opportunities to be in the chemical process or related industries. Thumbs up to the author!"
"I enjoyed this book very much and would recommend it to any chemical engineering student, junior chemical engineer or just chemical engineering enthusiast regardless of age."

ABOUT THE AUTHOR (ME) Zaki has been fond to be a chemical engineer since he was 14 and in 1999 he earned his Chemical Engineering bachelor degree. He has been in various industries such as oil and gas as well as oil and fats. He realized that there was lack of information or sharing about real chemical engineering career, experiences and exposure from practicing engineer; and that was the reason he started Chemical Engineering World blog in 2006, which received overwhelming responses from chemical engineering students and junior engineers around the globe. In 2008, he started Chemical Engineering Facebook Page which managed to attract 29k followers. His personal mission is to help build interest, excitement and enhance knowledge within the chemical engineering community in line with his favourite tagline, “Learn something about chemical engineering that is not in your textbook.”
