Center of Advanced Elastomer Materials (CAEM) was founded in 1975, belonging to Materials Science and Engineering of BUCT. It has Engineering Research Center of Elastomer Materials Energy Conservation and Resources, Beijing Engineering Research Center of Advanced Elastomers. CAEM is titled as “Changjiang Scholars and Innovation Team Development Plan” and National Defense Science and Technology Innovative Team. CAEM is one of the most important research centers in Chinese rubber science and technology, and also one of the places cultivating high-level talents in this field. CAEM receives a high popularity in the worldwide.  

CAEM relies on materials science of the national key subject, also belongs to “State Key Laboratory of Organic-Inorganic Composites”, “Key Laboratory of Beijing City on Preparation and Processing of Novel Polymer Materials”, “Key Laboratory of Carbon fiber and Functional Polymeric Materials of Ministry of Education”, “Bio-medical Materials of Beijing City”, and “Laboratory of High Performance Thermoplastic Elastomer Engineering”.

 CAEM is famous for preparation and application technology research of elastomeric materials, and is based on preparation science of elastomeric materials and structure-property of materials. It aims to national resources, energy, environment, life health and improvement of traditional industry technology. CAEM is aimed to promote the whole technique and equipment level of national elastomeric materials, forming our own discipline characteristics. CAEM aims to cultivate innovative talents with high quality, produces research achievements with high quality, develops key technique with our own knowledge rights, and creates influential new materials, serving for national economics and society development. 

In recent years, CAEM has undertaken and finished multiple national and ministry research projects, including 973 project, 973 sub-project, national science and technology supporting plan, 863 project, key project of NSF and international cooperation project, national defense projects and basic research projects, major and key projects of Ministry of Education, Key projects of NSF of Beijing, and other multiple enterprise supporting projects.   

CAEM has published over 1000 papers on Chinese and English core journals, and over 400 papers belong to SCI. CAEM was invited to write and edit 7 English major books, university books such as “Polymer Processing Engineering”, “Polymeric Materials”, “Polymer molding and processing principle”, “rubber engineering”, Chapter 5 “ Chemical and physical modification of rubber” of “Synthetic Rubber Industry Handbook”. 

CAEM has been awarded 1 second prize of national technology invention, 1 second prize of national science-technology progress award, 9 first prize and 6 second prize of provincial and ministerial technology invention and science-technology progress. 5 achievements were identified as the international leading level, and 18 achievements were identified as the international advanced level. CAEM has been granted over 120 Chinese patents, and has applied over 100 Chinese patents. The members of CAEM have won Hou Debang Chemical Industry Science and Technology Award, China Youth Scientific Award, Award for Scientific and Technology Innovation of Ho Leung Ho Lee, Spark-Thomas Award from ACS Rubber Division, Morand Lambla Award from International Polymer Processing Society, Asia Research Award from Society of Chemical Engineering of Japan.  

CAEM has won the national excellent teaching team of polymer engineering, national excellent course of polymer processing engineering. Some members of CAEM are fellows of China’s Tire Industry Technology Innovation Alliance, China Chemical Industry and Engineering Society, China Rubber Division, China Composite Materials Society, China Micro and Nano Composite Division, Chinese Materials Research Society, Chinese Polymer Materials Engineering and New Materials Professional Division of China Chemical Industry and Engineering Society.  Also, Some members are the Editorial members of “Journal of Applied Polymer Science”, “Express Polymer Letter”, “Mini Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry”, “Plastics, Rubber and Composites: Molecular Engineering”, “Rubber Chemistry and Technology” et al.

CAEM has established a wide research exchanging and cooperation with national, international universities and institutes. CAEM cooperates with DAWN Group, Linglong Tire, Aeolus Tire, DongfangYuhong, Wuxi Baotong and other enterprises, and achieves a large amount of applied science and technology achievements. CAEM and these enterprises have set up lots of special scholarships for students in Beijing University of Chemical Technology. The number of the winners is about 500 per year.  
         CAEM is collaborating closely with University of Akron, Case Western Reserve University, Louisiana Tech University, South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, Bradford University, Sydney University, University of Lorraine, Polytechnic University of Milan, Tokyo Institute of Technology, Goodyear, Lanxess, Japan Sumitomo rubber industry group, Dow chemical, Dupont and high-performance fiber companies of the United States.
