AATCC: Howard C. Malpass receives Olney Medal
The American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC), Research Triangle Park, NC/USA, has announced Howard C. Malpass as this year’s recipient of the AATCC Olney Medal Award. Malpass is being recognized for his work on the implementation of pre-reduced indigo and its beneficial impacts in the dyeing, manufacturing, and retail industries. The result of his work is a zero-discharge process. Malpass’s contributions have helped introduce a more cost-efficient, sustainable, and salubrious indigo dye process for suppliers, manufacturers, and retailers.
Established in 1944 in honor of Louis Atwell Olney, the founder and first president of AATCC, the Olney Medal recognizes outstanding achievement in textile or polymer chemistry or other fields of chemistry of major importance to textile science.
