Purpose: To recognize distinguished contributions to fundamental or engineering research on the chemistry and utilization of all hydrocarbon fuels.
Nature: The award consists of $5,000, a suitably engraved plaque, and an expense allowance of up to $1,500 for travel to the meeting at which the award will be presented.
Rules of Eligibility: The Storch Award is given annually to an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to research in the field of fuel science. This includes research on all aspects of the chemistry and utilization of all hydrocarbon fuels. The research may have been carried out over a long time period (e.g., a lifetime achievement award), or may be particularly innovative research conducted over a relatively short time period (several years). Special consideration will be given to innovation and novelty in the use of fuels, characterization of fuels, and advances in fuel chemistry that benefit the public welfare or the environment.
Nominations: The nomination package should consist of a letter of nomination, two or more supporting letters, nominee's CV and four to six relevant publications.
Nominations are due (via email is preferred) to the Energy & Fuels Division Award Chair on February 8, 2013
