Article by Amanda Jasi

ICHEME is urging chemical and process engineers from across the globe to highlight the world-leading contributions of their colleagues with nominations for the Institution’s 2025 medals and prizes.

Considered IChemE’s most prestigious accolades, the annual medals and prizes are designed to celebrate the outstanding achievements of chemical engineers in all sectors. They are presented to those who have demonstrated and delivered distinguished work across research, teaching, and services to the profession.

Alongside highlighting distinctive and extraordinary work throughout various chemical and process engineering disciplines such as particle technology, separations, and thermodynamics, IChemE’s medals and prizes also acknowledge excellence in volunteering, education, and the mentorship of early career professionals.

Mark Simmons, chair of the Medals and Prizes Committee said: “With chemical engineering’s central role in shaping the world’s future, we must take the time to shine a light on the individuals and teams who are working tirelessly to ensure that our profession is fully equipped to provide effective solutions to the global challenges we are facing as a society.

“IChemE’s medals and prizes have always celebrated the impact and innovation of chemical and process engineers across a range of specialisms, and this year is no exception. The many accolades contained within the categories of research and teaching, publications, special interest groups, and services to the Institution represent a fantastic opportunity to acknowledge the remarkable contributions made by chemical engineers at various stages of their career, from students and early career individuals all the way through to long serving professionals.

“As chair of the Medals and Prizes Committee, I encourage everyone within the chemical engineering community to submit their nominations and show their support for the peers and colleagues involved in exceptional work across all areas of the discipline."

Nominations for the 2025 medals and prizes should be submitted by 31 October 2024. There are 20 medals and prizes open for nominations.

Candidates for an additional four awards – the Hanson Medal, the Hutchison Medal, and the Moulton Medals – are shortlisted by the relevant editorial boards.
