This event is no longer available for registration.


The Society of Chemical Industry (SCI) America International Group is pleased to honor Sunil Kumar.

The Chemical Industry Medal, established in 1933, replaced the coveted Grasselli Medal, which had been awarded by the Grasselli Chemical Company for more than a decade.

Presentation of the Chemical Industry Medal is made annually to an individual elected by the Executive Committee of the America International Group of the Society of Chemical Industry. The Chemical Industry Medal is a testimonial to persons whose leadership, foresight and contributions to applied chemistry have been to a considerable degree responsible for the growth of that industry.
The medal has attained distinction by reason of the outstanding achievements and caliber of people who have been honored.

The Chemical Industry Medal is considered one of the Chemical Industry’s most prestigious awards. The gold medal is being presented to Mr Kumar in recognition of his outstanding leadership skills, public policy advocacy and many contributions to applied chemistry that have contributed to the progress of the entire industry.
