ICHEME has announced a new Clean Energy Medal will be given as part of its annual medals and prizes programme, which is now open for nominations.

The new Clean Energy Medal introduced by IChemE’s Clean Energy SIG has been created to recognise an individual for outstanding service in the field of clean energy. It is one of 22 medals awarded by IChemE. Also new for 2020, the winner of the Sharma Medal, which is awarded for significant contributions in the field of chemical engineering research, will now receive a prize of £1,000 (US$1200) – following sponsorship from AV Rama Rao, founder of Avra Laboratories, and Jyeshtharaj Joshi, former Director of the Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai, India.

Jarka Glassey, IChemE Vice President (Technical) and Chair of IChemE’s Medals & Prizes Committee, said: “IChemE’s annual medals and prizes programme recognises and celebrates chemical engineers’ achievements in advancing the profession and inspiring future generations. I encourage professionals in both industry and academia around the world, whether or not they are IChemE members, to nominate their peers who are significantly contributing to make the world a better place.”

Nominations are now open and close on 31 October.
