The two prestigious awards presented annually by the Australian Society For Bulk Solids Handling (ASBSH), for outstanding contributions to the field of bulk solids handling, are open for nominations.

The two awards are the Australian Society for Bulk Solids Handling Award, and the A. W. Roberts Award.

The former recognises an outstanding contribution to the field of bulk solids handling. The latter is for a younger engineer, of 35 and down, who makes a significant contribution in the areas of research, design and/or practice.

The ASBSH, the peak professional body for the bulk handling industry, confers the two awards every year. The A.W. Roberts Award is named after industry eminence Emeritus Professor Alan Roberts.

The winner of the Society award in 2016 was Peter Bulloch of BHP Billiton. In 2015, it was Neil Kinder of Kinder Australia. In 2014, Brian Moore of Hatch.

The winner of the A.W. Roberts Award in 2016 was Tom Hicks of Bechtel. In 2015 it was Tim Donohue of TUNRA Bulk Solids, and in 2014 Andrew Grima of Bulk Materials Engineering Australia.

Nominations, including a short CV, should be sent direct to Professor Mark Jones, chair of the ASBSH.
