Dr. Haiying Chen is the Winner of the 2014 Herman Pines Award in Catalysis

Haiying_ChenThe Catal­y­sis Club of Chica­go is pleased to announce that Dr. Haiy­ing Chen (John­son Matthey) is the recip­i­ent of the 2014 Her­man Pines Award in Catal­y­sis. This Award is giv­en to rec­og­nize Dr. Chen’s sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to the advance­ment of envi­ron­ment catal­y­sis and tech­nol­o­gy. Dr. Chen’s research has led to the dis­cov­ery and suc­cess­ful devel­op­ment and com­mer­cial­iza­tion of (1) small pore mol­e­c­u­lar sieve sup­port­ed tran­si­tion met­al cat­a­lysts for the Selec­tive Cat­alyt­ic Reduc­tion (SCR) of NOx with NH3; (2) NOx adsor­ber cat­a­lysts for heavy duty diesel emis­sion con­trol; and (3) sus­tain­able tech­nolo­gies for the con­trol of volatile organ­ic com­pound (VOC) emis­sions from indus­tri­al process­es. In addi­tion, his research has led to the devel­op­ment of low tem­per­a­ture emis­sion con­trol tech­nolo­gies to meet future emis­sion stan­dards.

Dr. Chen has been invit­ed to give lec­tures at var­i­ous uni­ver­si­ties as well as on nation­al and inter­na­tion­al sci­en­tif­ic meet­ings. He has pub­lished 13 patents and over 50 pub­li­ca­tions. In addi­tion, Dr. Chen has served the catal­y­sis com­mu­ni­ty in sev­er­al lead­er­ship roles.

The award includes an hon­o­rar­i­um ($1,000) and a plaque. Dr. Chen will receive this award and deliv­er the Award address at the Catal­y­sis Club of Chica­go Spring Sym­po­sium on May 13, 2014 at the BP Research Cen­ter in Naperville, IL.
