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.
