Corning honours MIT professor
Corning Incorporated awarded Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Professor Klavs Jensen the inaugural Corning International Prize for Outstanding Work in Continuous-Flow Reactors and Chemistry for a Greener and Safer World. Jensen is a distinguished professor of chemical engineering and material science who, along with his team, has made significant advances in academia in the field of microreactors and flow chemistry since 2009 by using Corning Advanced-Flow Reactors, according to the company. Corning presented the award to Jensen at the eighth annual Corning Reactor Technology Conference in Changzhou, China.
Corning’s AFR technology reportedly enables the continuous processing of chemicals with a smaller footprint than conventional batch reactors. The company’s reactors are specially designed to enable the conversion of batch chemical processes to continuous processes.
