2002 Fuel Ethanol Workshop Award of Excellence

This year at the 2002 International Fuel Ethanol Workshop in Springfield, Illinois, the Award of Excellence recipient was Rodney Bothast.

The Award of Excellence is bestowed on an individual who has completed research or technological improvements that have contributed in a significant way to improving the efficiency of ethanol production. This award is presented every other year and is more specific and scientific in nature than the FEW Distinguished Service Award that was first presented at the 2001 International Fuel Ethanol Workshop in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Over the years, many individuals have contributed to the growth and success of the ethanol industry through technological advancements.  More often than not, they have received little, if any, recognition for their efforts.  In 2000, that began to change at the International Fuel Ethanol Workshop (FEW) in Windsor, Ontario.  The first-ever Award of Excellence was presented to Dr. Raphael Katzen.

Nominations for the Award of Excellence are received by BBI International, then reviewed by an 8-member Award Committee consisting of both ethanol and research representatives. A special presentation requires a special prize... a beautiful cut glass award, etched with ethanol's molecular symbol on a hand finished wooden base.  In addition, the Award of Excellence recipient receives a check for $1,000.
