All papers presented at Energy and Fuels Division symposia are considered for the R.A. Glenn Award. This award, for the most innovative and interesting paper presented at each ACS national meeting, was established in 1956, by the Division of Fuel Chemstry, 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. Symposia chairs nominate up to two (2) papers from their sessions which they judge to be the most innovative and interesting original new work (not overviews). A selection committee then reviews all the nominated papers and attends the presentations. Based on the oral presentation, technical excellence, and the quality of the preprint, the committee selects the paper to receive the R.A. Glenn Award.
