AIChE Catalysis and Reaction Engineering Practice Award

The AIChE Catal­y­sis & Reac­tion Engi­neer­ing Divi­sion has asked the NACS to pub­li­cize its Prac­tice Award nom­i­na­tion request. This AIChE award is giv­en to rec­og­nize con­tri­bu­tions in catal­y­sis and reac­tion engi­neer­ing that solve tech­no­log­i­cal prob­lems and/or lead to com­mer­cial­iza­tion of new prod­ucts or process­es.

This award rec­og­nizes indi­vid­u­als who have made pio­neer­ing con­tri­bu­tions to indus­tri­al prac­tice of catal­y­sis and chem­i­cal reac­tion engi­neer­ing. The can­di­date must have made impor­tant and spe­cif­ic tech­ni­cal con­tri­bu­tions, ver­i­fi­able by means of well-doc­u­ment­ed evi­den­tial mate­ri­als, to the inven­tion, devel­op­ment, design or imple­men­ta­tion of indus­tri­al prod­ucts, cat­a­lysts or process­es through inge­nious and cre­ative appli­ca­tion of chem­i­cal reac­tion engi­neer­ing and/or catal­y­sis con­cepts. Awardees will be select­ed based on their con­tri­bu­tions to the dis­cov­ery and appli­ca­tion of inno­v­a­tive catal­y­sis or reac­tion engi­neer­ing solu­tions to tech­no­log­i­cal prob­lems, and/or com­mer­cial­iza­tion of new prod­ucts and process­es. Can­di­date must be an AIChE mem­ber. Can­di­dates may be from acad­e­mia, nation­al labs, or indus­try. Dead­line for nom­i­na­tions is May 15, 2009. Fur­ther details at the AIChE address below. Sub­mit the nom­i­na­tion via e‑mail to the CRE Divi­sion Vice-Chair: Fabio H. Ribeiro,; Phone: 765–494-7799.
