The RSC Prizes and awards celebrate the outstanding achievements by the members of the diverse chemical sciences community.
The Sustainable Energy Award is for the contributions of chemical sciences to sustainable energy. This includes development or understanding of materials and processes and the improvement of existing technologies through the application of the chemical sciences.
The 2017 Award to Professor Javier Pérez-Ramírez was awarded for his discovery of disruptive catalytic technologies for valorization of carbon dioxide and natural gas that can be applied at a practical scale and for the creation of stable single atom precious metal catalyst materials.
