Innoval Technology is delighted to announce that its Chief Scientific Officer, Prof. Geoff Scamans, has been awarded the Gold Medal by The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) in their Annual
IOM3’s Gold Medal is a premier award presented to a company, team or individual who has made a significant contribution to the industrial application of materials. The awards were presented at a gala
dinner in London on 11th July to mark IOM3’s 150th anniversary.
Geoff is a very worthy winner of the Gold Medal. His remarkable record of internationally acclaimed, multidisciplinary research spans several decades and every element of the materials cycle. While he is perhaps best known for his pivotal work on surface engineering and corrosion mechanisms in aluminium alloys, work that remains the leading reference material on the subject to this day, he has also campaigned tirelessly for sustainable manufacturing and efficient use of materials.
Through his work at Innoval Technology, Geoff has been responsible for over 20 successful collaborative research projects over the past decade. These projects span applications from transportation to construction, packaging, energy and defence. They have delivered major technological advances, including the development of high-performance alloys with excellent mechanical properties and structural integrity that can be fabricated using 100% recycled content.
Everyone at Innoval Technology and Aluminium International Today would like to extend their warmest congratulations to Prof. Scamans.
