Boehman to receive fuel science award

April 12, 2010

André Boehman, professor of fuel science, will receive the 2009 Society of Automotive Engineers' John Johnson Award for Outstanding Research in Diesel Engines in recognition of a paper he co-authored, "An Experimental Investigation of the Origin of Increased NOx Emissions when Fueling a Heavy-Duty Compression-Ignition Engine with Soy Biodiesel." The paper was published in the October 2009 issue of the SAE International Journal of Fuels and Lubricants.

This award was established in 2008 with a contribution from John H. Johnson, an expert in the field of diesel engines, to recognize the author(s) of an outstanding technical paper presented at an SAE meeting. The paper must address research advancements in diesel engines in the on- or off-road industries.

The paper's lead author was Charles J. Mueller, Sandia National Laboratories. Co-authors included André Boehman and Glen C. Martin, Sandia National Laboratories. They will receive the award on April 13 during the 2010 SAE World Congress in Detroit, Michigan.

Bacteria use their enemy -- phage -- for 'self-recognition'
Scientists discovered that cells can distinguish themselves from closely related competitors through the use of a virus, and the harboring of phage in bacterial genomes benefits host cells when facing competitors in the environment.
