The Dr. Richard Escales Prize was awarded for the ninth time on the first evening of the K trade show in Düsseldorf on October 19th. What made it special is that this is the first time the prize has been awarded in two fields of work: Prof. Dr. Thomas Seul was honored in the "Research and Development" category for his commitment and special achievements in communicating plastics technology expertise across different disciplines. Entrepreneur Kurt Gebert received the award in the "Industry" category for his commitment to promoting innovation in plastics technology, and collaboration across company and organizational boundaries.
Every three years, Carl Hanser Verlag and the VDWF honor people in the plastics industry who have made outstanding contributions to the field of plastics technology through this award. Dr. Richard Escales, application-oriented chemist, was the author of several important publications on chemical engineering and founder of the magazine Kunststoffe published by Carl Hanser Verlag.
The jury received around a dozen detailed nomination proposals this year.
