Compelling trends toward the future indicate that it will become important to give increased emphasis on electro-chemical education. Chief among these is the shift in the primary form of energy to electricity, away from chemical fossil fuel. Chemists and chemical engineers must learn to operate chemical processes without a fossil fuel based econ-omy. Electricity will be inexpensive with respect to chemical agents for oxidation and reduction. New routes will be required for synthesis of chemical materials and for beneficiation of increasingly lean natural resources. The education of students should include electrochemical fundamentals.
