Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology Abstracts

Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology Abstracts (CEABA) covers all aspects chemical engineering, biological engineering, and related fields. Sources are international scientific and user-related journals, conference proceedings, doctoral theses, and German research reports. CEABA aims to deliver chemical or process engineers, chemists, biotechnologists, and industrial scientists insights to the literature of process and bioprocess engineering, chemical engineering and biotechnology.

Since WTI Frankfurt eG took over the database in 2011 the number of abstracts added to the database has increased from around 9000 per year to almost 70000 in 2014. Since 2007 the “Thesaurus Technik and Management” of WTI Frankfurt is used for indexing the documents in CEABA. The majority of records have English abstracts; all records have English-language indexing
