How to hire a freelance chemical engineer

In our daily lives, we are constantly surrounded by products that have been developed by a chemical engineer. From IT innovations to recycling technologies, water issues, generation of energy and treatment of diseases, chemical engineers are truly versatile experts who can work in a variety of fields.


Chemical engineers are directly involved in the production and advancement of a wide variety of materials. But they are not limited to ‘doing things’ and their expertise can also be applied in education, finance, manufacturing, law and other technical fields.

What does a chemical engineer do?

Chemical engineering is all about chemical processes used in manufacturing. These professionals can develop and design products related to food, drugs, fuel and many others through the combination of chemical, biological, physical and mathematical principles. Chemical engineers typically apply their knowledge in the industries below:

  • Biomedicine, healthcare and pharmaceuticals
  • Energy and fuel
  • Food processing, fertilizers
  • Environment, water pollution
  • Electronics
  • Materials, fibers, construction and design

The combination of math and science, particularly chemistry, is the most important ingredient for this profession. The high level of knowledge on chemical processes allow chemical engineers to create and change so many commercial products.

Why find a chemical engineer for hire?

There are a number of situations where hiring a freelance chemical engineer can solve your problems in a quick and effective way. 

  • In biomedicine, chemical engineers play a key role in disease diagnosis, safety of medical devices, safety and efficacy of drugs.
  • In food production, so many developments are linked to chemical engineering, including new fertilizers and pesticides, packaging, processing and sterilization techniques.
  • In the energy field, generation of solar and wind power and biomass feedstocks have made a difference in the development of renewable fuels.
  • In the materials field, so many new developments have been investigated in relation to the evolution of plastics and fibers.
  • In the environmental field, better quality of water, air and soil have been the focus of many chemical engineers around the world.
  • In electronics, semiconductor chips have been constantly upgraded by these professionals.

The research areas related to chemical engineering typically include catalysis, biomolecules, cellular engineering, polymers, nanotechnology and complex fluids.

How much do a chemical engineering consultant cost?

In order to hire a freelance chemical engineer for your project, you need to spend around 30USD per hour. More complex projects, such as stabilizing the shelf-life of a food product can cost around from 1000 to 1800 USD.

Since the demand for these professionals is rising, their availability to work as freelancers greatly contributes to the progression of projects in different fields. 

If you are looking for a freelancer who is specialized in your field, you might need to expand your budget. Some specializations include ceramic, crystal, food, petroleum, agricultural and biological engineering.


No matter the size of your project, you will certainly reduce its costs by collaborating with freelancers instead of hiring an agency.

How to write an effective job post to hire a chemical engineering expert?

In order to optimize the process of finding a freelance expert in chemical engineering, the information below needs to be very clear in your job post:

- Project description or scope of work: The exact nature of your project needs to be described. Milestones and the final deliverables can be specified here as well.

- Duration of the project: Stipulate the timeframe to accomplish your project.

- By when you need to hire: Are you in a hurry to find a freelancer or will you search until you find the most suited expert? Here is the place to state how quick you need to find the freelancer.

- Budget: Define how much you can spend on the freelance consultant.

- Skills required: State which skills and experience would benefit you and your project.


Chemical engineering has a great impact on our lives, from the food we eat to the chemical requirements of a research project. In biomedical research, the contribution of these experts has grown exponentially. Several projects in a variety of fields can benefit from the expertise of a freelance chemical engineer. Through freelance platforms, you can collaborate with an expert in your field and find the right solutions for your chemical challenges.
