Process Commercialization: The 2017 Kirkpatrick Chemical Engineering Achievement Award

By Edited by Gerald Ondrey |

The path to commercialization can be long and arduous, which means the engineers and chemists taking the path must have a good deal of patience, dedication and fortitude. To honor the efforts of those chemical engineers and their companies that have sucessfully commercialized a new process for the first time, Chemical Engineering magazine has been bestowing its Kirkpatrick Chemical Engineering Achievement Award since 1933. The aim of the Award is to recognize and honor the most noteworthy chemical-engineering technology commercialized anywhere in the world during the two years prior to a given award year. The results for the 2017 Kirkpatrick Chemical Engineering Achievement Award are as follows: Winning Award CB&I (The Woodlands, Texas; www.cbi.com) and Albemarle Corp. (Charlotte, N.C.; www.albemarle.com), for the AlkyClean process — the world’s first solid catalyst alkylation process Honor Awards Chemetry Corp. (Moss Landing, Calif.; www.chemetrycorp.com): eShuttle technology The Dow Chemical Company (Midland, Mich.; www.dow.com): Canvera polyolefin dispersion technology The Dow Chemical Company: Paraloid Edge Technology Microvi Biotech Inc. (Union City, Calif.; www.microvi.com): Denitrovi biocatalytic nitrate…
