Clementine Chambon has been awarded one of this year's Graduate prizes from The Salters' Institute of Industrial Chemistry and she received her award at the Ceremony on Friday 29 November 2013. Over 185 guests attended the Prizegiving Ceremony and lunch reception.
Sir William Castell, Chairman of the Wellcome Trust, delivered a keynote address and presented the Awards at the Ceremony.
Each year, the Salters' Institute invites every UK department of Chemistry or Chemical Engineering to nominate one final year undergraduate. The selectors are looking for candidates who will ultimately be able to occupy leading positions in the UK Chemical Industry.
Clementine completed her Chemical Engineering MEng course this summer and she says, "I was honored to receive the Department nomination this year, and was invited for two interviews at the Salters' Institute in London. The panel was interested to know why I enjoy Chemical Engineering, and I was asked about my future career plans and the current issues facing the UK chemical industry". She is currently studying for a PhD in lignocellulosic biofuels at Imperial College.
