IFRF members may be interested to note that a tribute to János (‘John’) Beér, Professor Emeritus of Chemical and Fuels Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and former Head of the IFRF Research Station in IJmuiden and IFRF Superintendent of Research, will be held at a special session organised at the 44th International Clearwater Clean Energy Conference in Florida this June.
János, who passed away on 8th December aged 95, made many contributions to combustion science and technology that had lasting impact, in addition to being a great mentor, colleague and friend to many in IFRF – see our own tribute to him here.
