Henry Armstrong Memorial Lecture

Henry Armstrong, the Society’s first Messel Medallist, is recognised as a visionary and pioneer and founding father of chemical engineering.

His life’s work was centred on chemistry education within engineering schools and he played an important part in establishing the SCI Process Engineering Group.

This year SCI are delighted that Professor John Blacker will be presenting the Henry Armstrong Memorial Lecture. Professor Blacker holds the Chair of Process Chemistry in the Faculty of Engineering and the School of Chemistry at the University of Leeds and is Technical Director of iPRD. He holds a BSc (Hons) in Chemistry and Biochemistry, University of Sheffield, a PhD and DEA in Chimie Organiques, Université Louis Pasteur (Strasbourg). His research is focused on improving manufacturing efficiency through development of new chemical and process technologies which are more efficient and more cost effective. His contributions have been recognised through several awards, including the RSC Process Technology Award (2005).
