    Era of LRPTN

    HIMATEK (Himpunan Mahasiswa Teknik Kimia) ITB initiated LRPTN. LRPTN stands for Lomba Rancang Pabrik Tingkat Nasional, a national scale plant design competition for chemical engineering students.It hasbeen held 14 times and has been supported by BKKMTKI (Badan Koordinasi Kerja Mahasiswa Teknik Kimia Indonesia). LRPTN facilitates its participants to improve their professionalism.The first winner of LRPTN 1 in 1996 was Rudy Ferryanto and Agung Kurniawan, clrptnhemical engineering students from ITB, with their topic : “Pembuatan Cider Vinegar dari Apel Malang”.

  • 2013


    In 2013, the LRPTN was changed into RFEC (Regional Future Energy Challenge) and expanded the scale of the competition to ASEAN region. This action was performed to cope with the modern era of globalization.

    Era of IChEC

    The Indonesia Chemical Engineering Challenge (IChEC) is the annual event organized by Chemical Engineering Student Union (Himpunan Mahasiswa Teknik Kimia) Institut Teknologi Bandung in collaboration with Chemical Engineering Department. IChEC is held as our attention to current issues related to chemical engineering discipline, IChEC and social-politics as a big picture. Our vision is to boost young leader’s awareness and spirit, especially chemical engineering student, to become a future leader with global vision who able to solve global problems based on not just Chemical Engineering knowledge but also related multi-discipline skills. This event has reached its 20th year since the initiation. The competition is now open for students not only from Indonesia, but also from Southeast Asia countries. Formerly, IChEC was well-known as Lomba Rancang Pabrik Tingkat Nasional and Regional Future Energy Challenge. Since plant design is not the only event and chemical engineering is not only concern in energy, our grand event has evolved to Indonesia Chemical Engineering Challenge.
