Global Awards 2022
The Global Awards celebrate excellence in chemical, biochemical and process engineering and are a mark of peer-recognition across the world within industry and academia.
Achievements across chemical engineering were celebrated across 18 categories at the IChemE Global Awards 2022 ceremony, held in Manchester, UK, during November.
UK nuclear giant Sellafield Ltd and the National Nuclear Laboratory scooped the Outstanding Achievement in Chemical and Process Engineering Award for a collaborative project.
Utilising digital twinning technology to optimise the facility used to treat radioactive effluent from nuclear decommissioning and operational facilities, the project won the Water Award earlier in the evening, and the judges were so impressed that they crowned Sellafield Ltd and the National Nuclear Laboratory overall winners of the IChemE Global Awards 2022.
