Recently, the award ceremony of the International Award for Outstanding Young Chemical Engineer (IAOYCE) jointly set by the Chemical Industry and Engineering Society of China (CIESC) and Global Academy of Chinese Chemical Engineers (GACCE) was held at the 12th Global Chinese Chemical Engineers Symposium in Nanjing. The winner of this year is Jiang Xiaobin, a professor of School of Chemical Engineering, DUT.
Jiang Xiaobin, as the winner, gave a report at the closing ceremony.
Prof. Jiang Xiaobin's main research focuses are membrane crystallization, coupling and intensification of separation processes, and new membrane materials and equipment. More than 70 papers of his innovative research results have been published in the important journals in the field of chemical and membrane science, AIChE J. , Chem. Eng. Sci. , J. Membrane Sci.; 28/13 Chinese patents for invention have been applied/authorized, and 4/2 international patents have been applied/authorized, among which many technologies have come into use. He has been invited to report 11 times at Global Chinese Chemical Engineers Forum, AIChE Annual Meeting, CIESC Annual Meeting, Chinese Society of Particuology Annual Meeting, etc.
He has written books such as Coupling and Intensification of Separation Processes, and Membrane Technology Handbook, and has served since 2017 as the chairman of the session on separation and crystallization of membrane at AIChE Annual Conference. That is one of the few sessions of AIChE Annual Conference chaired by a scholar from a country beyond North America, which actively pushes forward interdisciplinary innovation.
In 2019 and 2020, recommended by CIESC, he has successively gained support from China Association for Science and Technology sponsoring young scientists joining international organizations and related activities. He has been granted Young Changjiang Scholar Award given by the Ministry of Education, Hou Debang Chemical Science and Technology Award for Young Scientist, Outstanding Contribution to Science and Technology Award for Young Scientist issued by China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Association, Outstanding Scientific and Technological Workers in National Petroleum and Chemical Industry, and "Liaoning Province Revitalization" Outstanding Young Talent. As core participant, he has won 1 Second Prize of National Science and Technology Progress Award, 1 Special Gold Award of International Invention Exhibition and 3 awards at provincial level.
The International Award for Outstanding Young Chemical Engineer is established, selected and delivered jointly by CIECS and GACCE. It is an international award aiming to encourage young chemical engineers to devote themselves to the chemical industry, to enhance innovation and application capabilities, to promote the learning and exchanges of chemical engineers at home and abroad, and to strengthen the selection and cultivation of talent reserve for international organizations. It is for young engineers all over the world who have made outstanding contribution to scientific research and innovation, and international exchanges and cooperation in chemical industry. The prize is awarded once a year, and the two prize-awarding institutes jointly presented award certificates to the winner.
