A CEREMONY was held in Spain yesterday evening to celebrate the top reviewers of IChemE’s journals.
The reception was hosted by IChemE’s journals partner Elsevier on the sidelines of the 10th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (WCCE10) currently taking place in Barcelona.
Among those recognised as top reviewers were Paul Serban Agaci (South African Journal of Chemical Engineering); Kathleen Aviso (Process Safety and Environmental Protection); Sergio Da Cunha (accepting on behalf of Gade Pandu Rangaiah, Sustainable Production and Consumption) Mariano Martín (Sustainable Production and Consumption); Rufat Abiev (Chemical Engineering Research and Design) Xuezhong He (Chemical Engineering Research and Design); Juan-Gabriel Segovia-Hernandez (Chemical Engineering Research and Design).
“Reviewers are essential for ensuring the quality of papers published in the journals,” said Catherine Cliffe, managing editor of IChemE’s journals. “This evening’s reception is a very welcome opportunity to meet and thank some of our hardest working reviewers in person.”
Also in attendance were IChemE journal editors-in-chief Eva Sorensen and Jarka Glassey who edit Chemical Engineering Research and Design (ChERD) and Education for Chemical Engineers (ECE), respectively.
The reception was also used to honour Professor Rakesh Agrawal who is set to give the 2017 P. V. Danckwerts Memorial Lecture at WCCE10 today. Agrawal, who is a professor of chemical engineering at Purdue University in the US, will give a lecture entitled ‘Challenges and Opportunities for Chemical Engineering in an Emerging Solar Economy’.
The lecture was established in 1985 to honour professor Peter V. Danckwerts as a leading scholar in the field of chemical engineering. He worked as the second Shell Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Cambridge and served as president of IChemE (1965-66). The lecture is cosponsored by IChemE, the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) and AIChE, and the journal Chemical Engineering Science.
WCCE10 has seen more than 3,000 delegates gather to discuss the latest advances and trends in chemical engineering. The congress runs until the 5 October.
