Announcing the Environmental Division Endowment Fund

The AIChE® Foundation and Environmental Division is pleased to announce our latest collaboration, the Environmental Division Endowment Fund. The fund will support AIChE’s most prestigious environmental award, the Lawrence K. Cecil Award, in perpetuity. 

The Cecil award recognizes an AIChE member for their outstanding chemical engineering contribution and achievement in the preservation or improvement of the environment. The endowed fund enables us to celebrate the environmental accomplishments, recognize outstanding leaders of our profession and inspire the new generation of chemical engineers to be better stewards of our planet. Our goal is to raise $50,000. 

We are delighted to share, our most recent 2021 Cecil Awardee and division Secretary, Dr. Robert Peters, P.E. has generously donated to support the fund. 

“It is an honor and privilege to be the 2021 Cecil awardee in recognition of my environmental research during my career. It is crucial that we continue to provide and grow the division’s awards in perpetuity.” – Dr. Peters 

It is crucial that we continue to provide and grow the division’s awards in perpetuity. – Dr. Peters 

We encourage you to join us with a gift today and help us reach our goal. Your support will advance environmental protection for future generations to come.
