Two undergraduate chemical engineering students from the University of Kentucky Paducah Campus and one graduate student from UK’s Lexington campus received awards at the 3rd International Congress on Sustainability Science and Engineering (ICOSSE) in Cincinnati, OH earlier this month. Several UK students and faculty attended the Congress, which was organized around three key themes in sustainability—water sustainability and innovative technology, sustainable manufacturing, and sustainable energy.

Ph.D. student Sumesh Sukumara took home the Outstanding Graduate Research Award and undergraduate students Christina Willett and William Croft were both awarded Outstanding Undergraduate Research Awards.  The Awards came with $100 each plus a certificate. The winning papers are cited below.

Outstanding Graduate Research Award, Sukumara, S., J. Seay, F. Badurdeen, W. Faulkner and J. Amundson (2013): “A Framework to Examine Sustainability of Various Biorefining Processes”, 3rd International Congress on Sustainable Science and Engineering, Cincinnati, OH.
