IISRP announces award recipients. (People in the News).

The International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers announced recipients of its two highest awards for the year 2002.

William Cornelis Vonk, research and technical support department manager at Kraton Polymers, will receive the Institute's technical award. Ernst August Kleinheidt, retired from Bayer AG after 32 years of service, will receive the IISRP's general award.

Vonk is being honored for his work on styrenic block copolymers as bitumen modifiers. He holds more than 10 patents and co-patents.

Kleinheidt's award is based on his contributions to the industry and his leadership at Bayer AG. He was instrumental in the restructuring efforts of the IISRP in the 1990s.
