IChemE has announced more than 100 finalist projects from 15 different countries that are in the running for its 2022 Global Awards, to be held in Manchester, UK, on 17 November.
This year, winners have been selected from 15 team categories, including Business Start-up; Diversity and Inclusion; Innovative Product; Oil and Gas; Sustainability; and Water; and two individual award categories (Young Industrialist and Young Researcher).
Winners of the IChemE Malaysia Awards (to be announced on 10 October) will qualify as finalists in their respective categories at the IChemE Global Awards.
The event, which will be hosted by television and radio host Reverend Richard Coles, is expected to be one of the largest gatherings of chemical and process engineers in the UK since before the pandemic.
Keith Batchelor, Chair of the IChemE Global Awards volunteer judging panel, said:
“We are so thrilled to be hosting the awards dinner in person this year after two years of virtual celebrations. There will be a great atmosphere as we recognise some of the highest standards and achievements in chemical engineering around the globe.
“We received a significant number of outstanding entries this year, with many focusing on the use of digital technologies and sustainability across different sectors, both of which are highlighted in IChemE’s Priority Topics.”
The winner of each team category will also be in with a chance to be crowned the overall winner and receive the Outstanding Achievement in Chemical and Process Engineering Award, sponsored by ExxonMobil.
