NUS IChemE award winners

The National University of Singapore (NUS) celebrated winners in three categories at the Institution of Chemical Engineers’ (IChemE) awards dinner in Singapore. The event forms part of IChemE's Global Awards program, which celebrates excellence and innovation in chemical engineering.

A team from NUS received the Research Project of the Year for their work, “Carbon Capture Using Innovative Adsorbents.” The project also won in the Sustainable Technology category. Dr Han Gang from NUS was named best Young Chemical Engineer in Research for his work on cleaner water and energy production, which has generated considerable excitement among the membrane science community, according to IChemE. 

Singapore Polytechnic was the winner in the Education and Training category with their entry, “Innovative Teaching of Chemical Process Safety.”  Glaxo Wellcome Manufacturing took the Process Safety award, sponsored by ABB Consulting, for their first venture into continuous manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients.  The project reportedly delivers a significant reduction in the number of process steps and improved safety performance. The Singapore based operation is part of the multinational pharmaceutical company GSK.

Professor Neal Tai-Shung Chung received IChemE's new Underwood medal, and Modec’s technical safety engineer, Ahmad Firman Masudi, was presented with a certificate confirming his new status as IChemE's first Associate Member (process safety) in Singapore.
