Ward TeGrotenhuis- Distinguished Inventor of Battelle

February 2010
Congratulations to EED’s Ward TeGrotenhuis on his selection as a Distinguished Inventor of Battelle. This corporate-level award recognizes individuals who have received 14 or more U.S. patents. Ward, who joined the Laboratory in 1993, has been granted 15 U.S. patents, as well as 11 foreign patents. In a ceremony on January 28, Laboratory Director Mike Kluse recognized Ward, along with Glen Fryxell, also of EED, as the two newest inductees. To date, 57 staff from across the Battelle organization have been honored with Distinguished Inventor of Battelle status; 15 of those recipients are from PNNL. A plaque commemorating Ward’s accomplishment is on display in the ETB lobby.
