Erickson cited for distinguished service

By Mary Rankin

Larry Erickson, chemical engineering professor and director of the Center for Hazardous Substance Research in the College of Engineering, has received a Distinguished Service Award from the International Phytotechnology Society for his efforts in planning and organizing the 12th International Phytotechnologies Conference Sept. 27-30 in Manhattan.

The conference provided the more than 200 scientists, engineers, consultants, policy regulators and other interested individuals, from more than 25 countries, the opportunity to explore and discuss how recent developments in phytotechnologies address current and emerging environmental challenges.

The Center for Hazardous Substance Research, which Erickson founded, celebrated 30 years of research and public service on Oct. 1.
