ChemE’s outstanding performance at the 2022 CCEC

2022 CCEC

During the 2022 Canadian Chemical Engineering Conference (CCEC) in Vancouver, BC from October 23-26, the Department of Chemical Engineering & Applied Chemistry received several awards.

Professor Greg Evans received the 2022 Environment Division Research and Development Dima Award, which recognizes distinguished contributions to research and/or development in the fields of environmental chemistry or environmental chemical engineering. Professor Evans is the founding Director of the Southern Ontario Centre for Atmospheric Aerosol Research (SOCAAR), a multidisciplinary centre that is investigating the impacts of air pollution on the environment, the climate, and human health. His research has advanced understanding of how changes in the concentration, composition, and origins of air pollution is impacting the exposure and health of Canadians.

In addition, Mackenzie Gole (ChemE 2T2) won 1st place and Kelly Yin (ChemE 2T3) 3rd place in the Robert G. Auld Competition, our student chapter of the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE) received the Student Chapter Merit Award, and half of our U of T undergraduate delegation won an impromptu art competition during the student banquet.

Congratulations to all our award recipients. To view photos from the 2022 CCEC, click here.
