Membrane Achievement Award

Kirkpatrick awardIt sits on a shelf in one of our conference rooms, and is often overlooked, but this Kirkpatrick award from 1981 is significant to our company history. At the time, our membranes group was a part of the Monsanto Company when we were credited for developing membranes to recover industrial gases. Membrane separation is more common now, but the concept was foreign and perplexing at the time. And as our development experts continue to master membrane manufacturing, we keep this chemical engineering award in mind to remind us of our beginnings.
