ICHEME has announced the finalists for its 2016 Global Awards ceremony, to be held this year at the Palace Hotel, Manchester, UK on 3 November and presented by UK broadcaster Adrian Chiles.
More than 120 entries have been whittled down from almost 500 to make the shortlists for 16 awards, celebrating the best in chemical, process and biochemical engineering. Some of the companies to be shortlisted include Amec Foster Wheeler, Chevron, Ferrari, George Washington University, Johnson Matthey, Loughborough University and National Nuclear Laboratory. The winners of the Singapore and Malaysia Awards ceremonies, the shortlists of which were announced earlier this month, will also be entered into the appropriate Global Awards categories. The full list of finalists is available on the IChemE website.
This year there are two new awards. The Biotechnology Award recognises achievements across a variety of bio sectors, while Team of the Year recognises a team that has demonstrated excellence in developing chemical engineering initiatives, products, projects or services. Returning categories include the Energy Award, the Food and Drink Award and the Sustainable Technology Award.
“This was a tough job for our judges. There are fantastic developments being made by chemical engineers every day, so picking the best projects is a difficult task. I’d like to thank them for their continued co-operation and detailed critiques, and well done to those who made the finals stage – you should all be incredibly proud,” said IChemE interim CEO Justin Blades.
This year the event is supported by ABB, AstraZeneca, BCECA, Bouygues Energies & Services, Costain, ExxonMobil, GSK, Jacobs, Morgan Sindall, NES Global Talent, Otto Simon, PM Group, Rolls Royce, Shell, and Simon Carves Engineering.
