Schremp and Graves to receive IISRP awards.

The International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers will honor two Firestone Polymer leaders. John Sehremp, retired president, will receive the General Award, and Daniel Graves, Firestone Polymer's manager of product development, will receive the Technical Award.

John Schremp is being honored for his contribution to the industry and the success of the IISRP. He became a director on the IISRP board in 1991 and has also served as Americas Section President, International President, Director Sponsor to the Technical Committee, and as a member of the Performance Review Committee. Between 1991 and 2004, he was president of Firestone Polymers and Firestone Natural Rubber and vice president of Bridgestone Americas.

Daniel Graves began his career at Firestone's Central Research Elastomer Synthesis Group as a technician. During this time, he received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in polymer science from the University of Akron. He continued his research as a tire compounder to develop elastomers with reduced rolling resistance. His research continued, leading to the development and commercialization of styrenic butadiene block copolymers as well as other products. Graves has many publications and over 48 patents.
