The Michael Garvey Award
The award is presented every year at Furnace Solutions for the best paper. It is presented in memory of Michael Garvey
Michael died in a climbing accident in 2008. He was 27 years old. I recruited Michael as a summer intern at our DeWitt, Iowa plant where he got what can only be described as “rave reviews” from the team there. After he completed his Master’s he joined our Carleton, Michigan facility and then moved to work for me in our Glass Technology Group in Carleton. Michael worked on a wide range of projects and with all levels of the company. He was an extremely motivated, dedicated and technically gifted glass technologist.
The Michael Garvey award went to Ms Burcin Gul, from Sisecam. For her paper “Improving Furnace Performance by Design and Operation”
