Call for Nominations - Activated Carbon Hall of Fame

Nominate a colleague or yourself!  PACS Laboratories is seeking nominations for upcoming Activated Carbon Hall of Fame awards in conjunction with its sponsored International Activated Carbon Conferences and Activated Carbon School programs. Nominators need to provide a candidate resume, examples of benefits to the activated carbon industry and telephone numbers for the person making the nomination and the candidate for the prestigious activated carbon Hall of Fame award.

This prestigious award is an important part of every IACC.  Nominations are always open because the IACC occurs every year.  Award selection for IACC-41 to be held February 22-23, 2018 in Orlando FL will be completed by January 15, 2018 and award selection for IACC-42 to be held in Pittsburgh PA will be completed by June 13, 2018.  Prior awards were based on technical innovations, patents, business leadership, new products, new test methods, industry stewardship, publications, teaching, mentoring, ASTM committee D activity, and combinations of the above qualifications and intangibles.  The award includes a lifetime FREE admission to future PACS sponsored IACCs.  No travel funds are available for awardees.  Awardees need to provide a plenary lecture at an International Activated Carbon Conference or assign the task to another qualified individual.
