Chinese vice premier Ma Kai confers the Chinese Government Friendship Award to Katharina Kohse-Hoinghaus.

Katharina Kohse-Hoinghaus, a guest professor of the Anhui-based University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), is among 50 foreigners working in China who have been recently given the Chinese Government Friendship Award.

The leading German combustion researcher was awarded in recognition of her fruitful collaboration with relevant labs under the USTC, especially her development of synchrotron-based diagnostic method of biomass pyrolysis in partnership with National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory.

Katharina is also the president of the Combustion Institute, an international non-profit organization dedicated to researches and applications of combustion science. Through her education and recommendation, three young scientists from the USTC were awarded the Bernard Lewis Fellowship, known as the highest young scientist award of the institute.

Thanks to her promotion of the country’s fundamental combustion research, China has seen the second largest number of annual publications in two top combustion journals -Combustion and Flame, Proceedings of the Combustion Institute-among all countries. The USTC alone contributes about 1/4.

Katharina was awarded “Distinguished Woman in Chemistry/ Chemical Engineering” by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry and the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany by German President Horst Kohler.

First conferred in 1991, the Friendship Award is the Chinese government’s top honor for foreigners working in China.
