This competition, held at Chemical Engineering Building of UI on Thursday-Saturday (16-18/03/17) is an annual competition in chemical engineering fields. The theme this year is “Empowering Energy Development with Innovative & Creative Economy Integration”. Series of events following Petrogas Days UI 2017 consist of Chemical Product Design Competition (CPDC) with the topic “Empowering Technopreneurship through Specialty Chemical Development”, Case Study with the topic “Biodiesel Role in Indonesia’s 2025 Energy Mix”, Student Energy-Model United National (SE-MUN) Conference and Grand Seminar.

In this Petrogas Days UI 2017, ITB won the 1st place in Chemical Product Design Competition through Team Graphene that was consisted of Dessi AEB Ginting (Chemical Engineering 2013), Serra Delvira (Chemical Engineering 2013), Stenly Hutapea (Chemical Engineering 2013), and Yohana Betania (Industrial Engineering Management 2013). ITB also won the 1st place in Case Study through Team ESCOVA that was consisted of Irfaan Taufiiqul Rayadi (Chemical Engineering 2013), Haryo Pambudi (Petroleum Engineering 2013) and Singgih Chandra Prakosa (Petroleum Engineering 2013).
