Excellence in chemical engineering recognised through IChemE Medals: Andrew Medal for Professor Freek Kapteijn

12. 4. 2018 | Susan

More than twenty chemical engineers have been recognised by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) Medals and Prizes Committee for their outstanding contributions to the profession, in both research and industry.The committee published the 2017 list of IChemE medal and prize winners. They recognise exceptional work across all aspects of chemical, process and biochemical engineering.

Among the winners, Professor Freek Kapteijn, Delft University of Technology, Netherlands, will receive the Andrew Medal, named after Professor Syd Andrew. Kapteijn is recognised as one of the founding fathers of catalysis engineering, and has pioneered new concepts and approaches which will help improve our understanding of structure-performance relationships in heterogeneous catalysis and material’s science in the years to come.
