Welcome! With the belief that it is the responsibility of engineering professionals and engineers to respond to the global challenge of addressing worldwide greenhouse gas emissions, the five major engineering societies, AIChE, ASME, AIME (AIST, SPE, TMS, SME), IEEE, and ASCE, have joined together to organize an initiative to the challenges posed by developing and implementing technologies for Carbon Management. This website will serve as a resource on the challenges to our collective 1 million members and society at large.
