Kudos to Prof. Schwan, for being recognized as one of nine 'Outstanding Reviewers' by the Canadian Journal of Chemistry!
Being selected as a reviewer by the Journal is evidence of rigour and standing in a scientific field. However, receiving the public recognition as an Outstanding Reviewer displays a high level of confidence for consistently high quality reviewing. From the CanJChem website.

Kudos to Marcel Schlaf. The two volume series on catalytic biomass conversions, edited by Marcel and Conrad Zhang is now in print.
This work, published by Springer, brings together mechanistic studies of biomass conversions; it is particularly timely, with the growing appreciation of the impact of petrochemical-based industries.
Advances in Engineering has identified a paper by Dorin Bejan and Nigel Bunce, Acid mine drainage: electrochemical approaches to prevention, and remediation of acidity and toxic metals (Journal of Applied Electrochemistry, December 2015, Volume 45, Issue 12, pp 1239-1254) as a Key Scientific Article contributing to excellence in engineering, scientific and industrial research. Advances in Engineering highlights papers of exceptional scientific importance, including the biographical information of the authors, to a broad scientific & engineering audience. It is viewed almost 650,000 times each month by engineers, professors and scientists and it is linked to the top 50 engineering companies as well as major research institutions.
More and more faculty's work is being showcased on scientific journal covers helping to raise the Department's profile. Check out the gallery.
