2018 ENFL Storch Award

Andy Herring, Colorado School of Mines

Herring

 

Prof Andrew Herring of Colorado School of Mines will receive the 2018 Henry H. Storch Award in Fuel Science sponsored by the Energy & Fuels Division of the American Chemical Society at the Boston National meeting in August 2018. Prof. Herring is an internationally and nationally recognized leader in anion exchange membranes for electrochemical applications and fuel science. His innovative research accomplishments over more than 2.5 decades have had a major impact to the science and engineering advancements in fuel cells, catalysis, and membranes. He has made significant contributions to innovation in the use and characterization of fuels and advances in fuel chemistry that have focused on benefitting the environment, notably his pioneering work in new fuel cell electrocatalysts, photo-electro-catalysts, heteropoly acid based catalysts, and membranes for electrochemical applications
Prof. Herring’s interests are generally in materials or catalysis to enable renewable energy, energy efficiency, or energy storage. In his early career he was interested in biomass pyrolysis, bio-diesel, hydrocarbon catalysis and photoelectrochemical water splitting. He is currently studying low and intermediate temperature fuel cells an effort that began 23 years ago. Dr. Herring is developing anion exchange membranes for electrolysis and fuel cells, and proton exchange membranes for increased durability or higher fuel cell operating temperatures and for ion selective redox flow batteries. He has complimentary projects in electrocatalysis, ion exchange membranes, and membrane electrode assembly testing for both anion and proton exchange membrane electrochemical energy conversion devices.

Andy Herring has a B.Sc. Hons in Chemistry and a Ph.D. in Inorganic and Structural Chemistry with Prof Bernard L. Shaw, FRS, from the University of Leeds, UK. After postdoctoral appointments at Caltech and NREL he joined the Colorado School of Mines (CSM) as a research associate. After 23 years at CSM, Prof. Herring is now a tenured full Professor in the department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. He was elected as a fellow of the American Chemical Society in 2016, where he served as the division chair of the Fuel (now Energy and Fuels) Division and received the ENFL Distinguished Service Award in 2015. He is currently chair of the Energy Technology Division of the Electrochemical Society.

A symposium in his honor will run Monday and Tuesday, August 20-21, 2018, at the Boston ACS National meeting.

Summer 2018 Newsletter (html)

 

The article “SOx/NOx Removal from Flue Gas Streams by Solid Adsorbents: A Review of Current Challenges and Future Directions” by Fateme Rezaei, Ali A. Rownaghi, Saman Monjezi, Ryan P. Lively, and Christopher W. Jones is the winner of the 2018 Energy & Fuels Joint Award for Excellence in Publication.

Emerging Researcher Awards:

Guihua Yu (University of Texas Austin) and Alissa Park (Columbia University) are selected for the 2018 ENFL Emerging Researcher Award. They are recognized for their outstanding research records and excellent contributions to the ENFL Division.


Distinguished Service Award:

Michelle K. Kidder, from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, was selected as the recipient of The Distinguished Service Award. The award is limited to individuals who have been members of the division for at least 10 years and who have had, in the opinion of the selection committee, a significant and continued impact on the advancement of energy and fuels chemistry through research, teaching, service or a combination of the three over an extended period of time.


R.A. Glenn Awards :

The Division has selected two winners for the

    1. Glenn Best Paper Award from presentations at the 255th ACS National Meeting

      in New Orleans, LA. The Glenn award is given to the most innovative and interesting paper presented at each ACS national meeting. The award was established in 1956, by the Division of Fuel Chemistry, in cooperation with Bituminous Coal Research, Inc. In 1972, the award was named in honor of Richard A. Glenn, who served as Assistant Director of Research at Bituminous Coal Research, Inc. and as Chairman of the Fuel Chemistry Division in 1960 and has been awarded since. Our awardees from the ACS New Orleans spring meeting sessions were Stephen A. Miller: from the University of Florida, in Gainsville, Florida; “Biofuel and biorenewables from the carinata biomill” and Michal Leskes of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel; “Probing bulk materials properties and the electrode- electrolyte interface with novel solid-state NMR methodology.” The winners will be receiving an honorarium at the Awards Dinner in Boston, Tuesday evening.


      Student Award Session:

       

      NEW: ENFL developed a Student Poster Award session that kicked off in the Fall 2017, Washington, D. C. to recognize undergraduate and graduate student research. Applicants present their poster and two winners are given a $500 travel stipend each. Current undergrad and graduate students are eligible, contact Michelle K. Kidder for details on the Boston ACS session (applications are being accepted now until August 13th, 2018). kidderm@ornl.gov. The poster presentation will take place during the ENFL Business Social, Monday August 20th, at 11:30 am, in the Convention Center, room 052B.

Spring 2018 Poster Award Winners

Rangana Jayawickramage, graduate student

@U of Texas at Dallas

“PAN-Lignin polymer blends as carbon fiber precursors for high performance supercapacitors”


Harrison Siegal, undergraduate student @ Christopher Newport University

“Determination of the most effective asphaltene inhibitor at affecting the flocculation onset point in a medium crude oil”


Joint Award for Publication Symposium

The fourth annual Energy and Fuels Joint Award for Excellence in Publication was awarded to author Fateme Rezai, assistant professor at Missouri University Science and Technology, for her paper titled “SOx/NOx Removal from Flue Gas Streams by Solid Adsorbents: A Review of Current Challenges and Future Directions”. A symposium in honor of her dedication will be held in Boston at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront hotel, on Tuesday afternoon.


ChemLuminary Awards Night:

The 20th annual ACS ChemLuminary Awards celebration will be held in Boston on August 21, from 8pm (poster session 8-10 pm) until midnight at the Boston Park Plaza, Grand Ballroom A/B. Awards recognize local, technical, regional and international chapters for efforts and work in promoting chemistry and the chemical sciences during 2017. ENFL has been nominated for two awards: Most Unique Project as Funded by a Division IPG, and Outstanding Leadership Development Program.


Innovative Program Grant (IPG)

ENFL secures 2018 IPG grant, proposed by Paul Robinson: Public Outreach with Energy- Related Presentations. The project goal is to educate the general public, students and working professionals on critical energy- related issues. For more info, or to be a volunteer, please contact Paul, pr.robinson@yahoo.com
