This month has been quite a busy one for the 'ChemTech' team, getting the magazine ready for print and judging and then organizing the final details for the awards function for our annual competition, to be held at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club.
On the night of the 27th June the winners will receive their prizes in three categories:
- Undergraduate Student of the Year 2012
- Research Paper of the Year 2012
- Specialization Awards 2012 - Water and Energy
The criteria for submissions were, in case you may have forgotten, as follows:
- Practicality of the method or design
- Financial benefits
- Sustainability issues, eg, does the design take environmental issues into account?
- To what extent does the method or design supersede what is currently available in practice?
- The submission must be relevant to the chemical engineering community.
By the end of this month there will be photos of the event on our website. Look out for it!
I want also to point out that our latest endorser, The Southern African Association for Energy Efficiency (SAEE), in cooperation with its chapters, annually award scholarships of R15 000 each to students with an excellent academic record in their previous years of study. Scholarships are awarded in support of transformation of the energy sector and will only be awarded to South African Nationals.
Students who fit the following criteria are invited to apply for the SAEE Scholarship Programme:
- Student enrolled for a 2nd or 3rd year of study in year of application;
- Student has to be registered in either Engineering, Built Environment and Environmental Studies;
- Student has to be registered at a southern African academic institution;
- Recipients of other government scholarships and or bursaries will not be eligible for the SAEE scholarships.
To apply for the programme, please download the form and email the complete form along with the supporting documents to email@example.com or fax 086 726 7135. For more information contact Danielle Badenhorst at (018) 293 149.
The June issue covers the usual wide variety of interesting topics, including the first in a two-part article on e-waste management, a very topical matter of great importance today. There is also an article on hydrogen in our emerging technologies feature and then two articles based on mining topics: magnetic separation and, in the mining and minerals processing section, one on the economics of mine water treatment from experts in the Czech Republic.
