Papers nominated for The John A Brodie Medal at Chemeca
2006, held in Auckland, New Zealand
Dr Brent Young joined the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Auckland
as a Senior Lecturer in January 2006. Brent was previously an Associate Professor in Chemical and Petroleum
Engineering at the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada (1998–2005) where he is now Adjunct Associate
Professor. Prior to this, he was a Lecturer (1991–1996) and then Senior Lecturer (1996–1998) in Chemical
Technology at the University of Technology, Sydney, Australia. He received his B.E. (1986) and Ph.D. (1993)
degrees in Chemical and Process Engineering from the University of Canterbury. His teaching and research
interests centre on process control and design. He is a registered professional engineer and a Fellow of the
IChemE. He is actively involved in applied research and industrial consulting. Brent has taught and practiced
in New Zealand, Australia and Canada.
Dr Darrell Alec Patterson is currently a lecturer in Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University
of Auckland, New Zealand, having joined the Department in August 2005. He completed his B.E. at the
University of Auckland (1996) and completed his Ph.D. (2001) on the wet air oxidation of surfactant
wastewaters and postdoctoral research (2003–2005) on catalytic chiral reactions combined with membrane
separations both at Imperial College, London. In between these research roles, he worked at WS Atkins Water
in the United Kingdom as a Project Manager and Technology Development Consultant (2001–2003). His
teaching and research interests centre on green process technologies, in particular, membrane fabrication and
novel membrane separations, catalytic reaction engineering, and enhanced advanced oxidations for waste and
wastewater remediation.
Professor Xiao Dong Chen was born in 1965 in Beijing, China. He received his Bachelor of Engineering
in Engineering Thermophysics in 1987 from Tsinghua University in Beijing, and was awarded his Ph.D. in
Chemical and Process Engineering from the University of Canterbury New Zealand in 1991. Dong had worked
at New Zealand Dairy Research Institute for 2 12 years. In late 1993, he was appointed as a lecturer at the
University of Auckland and in 1998, he was promoted to associate professor and a full professor (Personal
Chair) in 2001. He was elected to Fellow of Royal Society of New Zealand in the year 2000, Fellow of
IChemE in 2001 and was the recipients of the Shedden Uhde Medal (1999), Royal Society Cooper Medal
(2002), Hood Fellowship (2005) and Nanqiang Lectureship (2005). Dong has published well over 240 papers
in journals, and has over 160 refereed conference papers in the areas of food processing, chemical engineering
and biochemical engineering. He was the Professorial Principal of Food Engineering at the Riddet Centre of
Excellence for Food Research in NZ. He is a company director for Freezcon NZ Ltd based in Auckland.
Since mid April 2006, he has moved to Monash University to serve as the Chair of Biotechnology and Food
Engineering, based in the Department of Chemical Engineering. Most recently, he was awarded the 2006
Inaugural Fonterra Award, for his outstanding achievement in practical and commercialisation of food and
biological engineering research in Australasia. Also, he is now the Associate Dean International for the Faculty
of Engineering at Monash, Adjunct Professor at Auckland and China Agricultural University.
Who is John A Brodie? Mr John A Brodie was the Chief
Engineer with Union Carbide and The John A Brodie
Medal is named in his honour. Mr Brodie established a
reputation as a leading industrial innovator in Australia,
having been responsible for the design and construction
of polyethylene film extrusion units, the manufacture of

bakelite and a continuous crystallisation plant known
as the Brodie Purifier. He won several international
awards for his inventions, and he also won the Prince
Philip Award for Australian Design. Mr Brodie was
a Councillor of the Institution of Engineers, Australia
from 1967 to 1971.

EDITORIAL
The John A Brodie Medal is awarded by the Institution of Engineers, Australia for the best paper in
the discipline of chemical engineering presented at the
Chemeca Conference, at any other conference sponsored by the Institution of Engineers, at a Branch meeting of the Institution or published in the journal of
Chemical Engineering in Australia during the past year.
In this instance, the Engineers Australia John A. Brodie
Medal is awarded for the best paper in the discipline of
Chemical Engineering and is presented at the Chemeca
Conference held at Langham Hotel, Auckland, New
Zealand. The winners of the medal were Philip Schwarz,
CSIRO Minerals and John Lee, BP Refinery, Bulwer
Island, for their excellent paper titled ‘Simulation of
the BP FCC Regenerator: Coke Combustion and Temperature Distribution’.
All the session chairs were involved in the nominations of the papers selected from their own, and
the technical committee from Chemeca 2006 made the
final selection. Here, we congratulate all the nominated
 2007 Curtin University of Technology and John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
Asia-Pacific Journal of Chemical Engineering
authors in the pre-selection and indeed honour them
by publishing their papers in this special issue. These
papers are from the Sessions of Bioengineering and
Bio-molecular Engineering, Education, Energy, Environmental Engineering, Food and Bioproduct Engineering, Fundamentals, Materials, Mathematical Modelling,
Particle Technology, Plastics and Composites, Process
Dynamics and Control, and Separations.
We believe this collection of the papers is a good
reflection of the standard and the variety of the research
that is going on in this part of the world.
