DES PLAINES, Ill., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE: HON) company, announced today that UOP President and CEO Dr. Rajeev Gautam has received the 2012 Chemical Engineering Personal Achievement Award from Chemical Engineering magazine.

The annual award recognizes Gautam's record of notable achievements in the application of chemical engineering principles to solve major societal challenges.

"Rajeev is a champion of translating the creative and scientific processes involved with research and development into solutions that greatly benefit society," said Andreas Kramvis, president and CEO of Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies. "Whether it is meeting the need for more fuels or petrochemicals, or inventing cleaner, more sustainable technologies for a wide variety of applications, UOP, under Rajeev's leadership, has made remarkable technological advances and has revolutionized the modern refining and petrochemicals industries. This award is a well-deserved testament to Rajeev's outstanding leadership and hard work, and it is indicative of UOP's strong position of technology leadership."

Since being named to UOP's top position in 2009, Gautam has led the introduction of several breakthrough technologies that help meet the world's growing demand for energy and petrochemicals. These breakthroughs include Methanol-to-Olefins (MTO) process technology, which can convert non-crude oil sources such as coal or natural gas to building-block materials used for plastics production. UOP also developed the Uniflex™ process, which allows refiners to turn heavy, bottom-of-the-barrel crude into valuable products.

UOP recently acquired Thomas Russell Co., a leading provider of technology and equipment for natural gas processing and treating, broadening its offerings to help shale and conventional natural gas producers remove contaminants from natural gas and recover high-value natural gas liquids used for petrochemicals and fuel.

UOP's Renewable Energy and Chemicals business has pioneered technologies to make Honeywell Green Diesel™ and Honeywell Green Jet Fuel™, which can be produced without compromising the food supply, as well as green transportation fuels from non-edible biomass.
