EFCE Honors Emulsification Research
The European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE), Brussels, Belgium, has bestowed this year’s Julius Maggi Research Award on David Lloyd, a postdoctoral student at the University of Birmingham, Birmingham, U.K. , for his development of a more-energy-efficient way to produce emulsions.
Lloyd’s research focuses on rotating membrane emulsification. The method forms droplets in a different way than conventional techniques and can be up to 90% more energy efficient for small-scale production.
The award, which is underwritten by Nestlé and carries a €2,500 cash prize, is given to the best scientific paper presented by a PhD student at the annual European Workshop on Food Engineering and Technology.
