2010 LMD JOM Best Paper Award
2010 LMD JOM Best Paper Award presented to Dr. Subodh Das and co-author John Green.
The following paper has been selected for recognition by the LMD JOM Advisors and the LMD Council with the 2010 Minerals, Metals and Materials Society Light Metals Division. "Aluminum Industry and Climate Change - Assessment and Responses" by - Subodh K. Das and John A.S. Green , Issue: Journal of Metals, February 2010.
"It is now possible to assess the impact of the production processes of aluminum on the environment and to describe some of the ongoing responses and opportunities for improvement. This is compared with the benefits of aluminum in transportation, where the growing usage in various forms of transport due to its low density, high strength, and ability to be recycled enables reduced mass, increased fuel efficiency, reduced emissions and increased safety. It is the purpose of this paper to compare and contrast the emissions generated in the production of aluminum with the benefits accruing from its increased use in transportation.
The Light Metals Division JOM Best Paper Award recognizes the most notable paper published in the preceding volume year for JOM. The paper must be of direct interest to the Light Metals Division and related industries; readable by the non-specialist; usable by practitioners; informative and state-of-the-art; well referenced; and not focusing on a particular technology."
