NEW YORK – In a ceremony last week during its Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) presented its new Process Operations Award to Bristol-Myers Squibb - Process and Development. The award, which recognizes individuals or teams working in plant operations, process control, and/or supply chain management that have significantly improved the safety, reliability or economics of process operation, went to the company team for its efforts in implementing “recipe” control in pharmaceutical process development.
AIChE is a professional society of more than 40,000 chemical engineers in 92 countries. Its members work in corporations, universities and government using their knowledge of chemical processes to develop safe and useful products for the benefit of society. Through its varied programs, AIChE continues to be a focal point for information exchange on the frontier of chemical engineering research in such areas as nanotechnology, sustainability, hydrogen fuels, biological and environmental engineering, and chemical plant safety and security.
