Philippe Tanguy, vice president of scientific development at international oil and gas company Total has been awarded a certificate of IChemE Honorary Fellowship in recognition of his contributions to chemical engineering at the 7th European Congress of Chemical Engineering, Prague, Czech Republic.
Tanguy was recognised for his contributions to both academia and industry. Before joining Total earlier this year, Tanguy was based in Canada as a professor of chemical engineering at the University of Montreal where he is now an adjunct professor. The Honorary Fellowship also recognised Tanguy’s leading role in the successful 2009 World Congress of Chemical Engineering in Montreal.
Tanguy is the second person to be awarded Honorary Fellowship of IChemE this year. In May, retiring Member of UK Parliament Brian Iddon was recognised for his longstanding support of the chemistry-using industries.
