SPE: Industry Leaders Honored

Four distinguished individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the plastics industry will be honored by the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) at next month’s SPE Antec 2013.

Antec 2013 will take place April 22-24 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S.A. The honors will be presented to the four individuals as part of the Society’s Annual Awards Program at the SPE Celebrates Banquet on Sunday, April 21.

The International Award is SPE’s most distinguished award and is presented to honor an individual’s lifetime achievement. Dr. Benny Freeman, the Robert B. Curran Centennial Chair in Chemical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, has made important contributions in engineering, research, service, and education involving polymer membranes for low-energy gas and liquid separations.

The Business Management Award recognizes Tim G. Taylor`s achievements in management with Chevron Phillips Chemical Company. He currently serves as the Executive Vice President of Commercial, Marketing, Transportation, and Business Development at Phillips 66.

Dr. Robert Y. Lochhead will receive the Education Award. He joined the University of Southern Mississippi as Associate Professor in 1990 and has chaired the Department of Polymer Science since 1993. He serves as Principal Investigator of the NSF-funded “Multinational Partnership to Incite Innovation” and is Director of the School of Polymers and High Performance Materials at USM.

The Research / Engineering Technology Award will go to Dr. Robert R. Gallucci. He is Chief Scientist with Sabic Innovative Plastics in Mt. Vernon/IN, USA. In his plastics career of more than 36 years he has developed many new thermoplastic products, often using extruder chemistry and polymer blend compatibilization.
