Professor Huen Lee of the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department at KAIST will receive a lifetime achievement award at the 8th International Conference on Gas Hydrates (ICGH) to be held from July 28, 2014 to August 2, 2014 in Beijing, China.
Among his other scholarly and research accomplishments, Professor Lee achieved the development of natural gas by injecting carbon dioxide and nitrogen into the layers of gas hydrates. With this technology, ConocoPhilips, an American multinational energy corporation, successfully extracted natural gas from the gas hydrates in the North Slope of Alaska in the US in April 2012.
Meeting every three years in a different country around the world, ICGH is a leading gathering of scientists and engineers in gas hydrates. The 8th conference will be held under the theme of “Opportunity and Challenge-Development and Utilization of Gas Hydrates.”
