On Wednesday, November 28, more than 260 chemical engineers and related professionals gathered at The Plaza Hotel for the 2012 AIChE Gala. 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Silent Spring, from which many date birth of the modern environmental movement.
The gala raised $400,000 for AIChE's sustainability initiatives. John S. Watson, Chairman and CEO of Chevron Corporation; Ellen Kullman, Chair and CEO of DuPont; and John Televantos, partner with Arsenal Capital, were honored. See photos of the event and honorees.
