Bob Wegeng Receives Distinguished Inventors Award

May 2005
Congratulations to ETD's Bob Wegeng for receiving the Distinguished Inventors of Battelle Award. This award is given to researchers who have 14 or more U.S. patents to their credit as a direct result of their work at Battelle. Working with a variety of collaborators, Bob has received patents for methods that use engineered microstructures to exploit physical principles controlling and enhancing chemical reactions and heat transfer. These breakthroughs enable chemical process and energy conversion components and systems to be 10 to 100 times smaller without sacrificing efficiency or production rates. Congratulations again, Bob!
