[Faculty]Professor Seo Tae-won Won Best Innovative Product at the Reddot Design Awards

"Edelsto," a building exterior cleaning robot built by a team from Hanyang University led by Professor Seo Tae-won (Division of Mechanical Engineering), won the prize for most innovative product at the 2020 Reddot Design Awards held by the German Nordheim Westfalen Design Center. The Reddot Awards are in the world’s top 3 design awards, with more than 6,500 product submissions from 60 countries this year. Professor Seo’s Edelstro, which was selected as the Most Innovative Product this year, is a robot that is installed in the gondola of skyscrapers to analyze and clean the exterior walls of buildings without human casualties. Also, users can closely check contaminated areas using visual sensors and Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms installed in the robot, and the point that intuitive cleaning by manipulation of squeeze·brush nozzles is being highlighted. Professor Seo said that “Through the Dubai International Building & Construction show (THE BIG 5) and CES exhibition, the utility of and demand for Edelstro has been confirmed, along with the recognition of its aesthetic value from the Reddot Awards this year, and noted that “We plan to release a prototype by the end of the year after testing its suitability for diverse environments in other countries.” ▼ Edelstro (Photo by: Professor Seo Tae-won) Global News Team

[Faculty]Professor Park Ju-hyeon Receives the ‘EPD Science Award’ for the Best Paper from the American TMS

Professor Park Ju-hyeon Professor Park Ju-hyeon from the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering was chosen as the recipient of the ‘2020 TMS EPD (Extraction & Processing Division) Science Award’ from the American TMS (The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society). The EPD Science Award is an honorary award, which is given for the best single paper issued in the last two years within the chemistry field, including JOM, an SCI journal that TMS issues, Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A & B, Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy, and other proceedings. The awarded paper is titled “Effect of Direct Reduced Iron (DRI) on Dephosphorization of Molten Steel by Electric Arc Furnace Slag (Heo Jeong-ho, Park Ju-hyeon),” which was issued in Metallurgical and Materials Transactions B in December 2018. Additionally, Heo Jeong-ho, Ph. D., now working at LS-Nikko Copper inc, was the first author of the paper while he was studying for his doctorate degree. In the paper, the authors observed slag generation when putting direct-reduced iron to reduce the carbon dioxide emission of steel production, and they thermodynamically defined the causes of the impurity element (P) steel cleanness reduction. This research was part of a research project of national “Alternative Steel Based Steel Producing Process Carbon Dioxide Emission Reduction Technology Development (Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy).” This event is meaningful since he was the first person in 47 years to receive the award as a Korea-based institute researcher. The awarding ceremony for the 2020 TMD EPD Science Award will be held at the 149th TMS Seminar in San Diego on February 25th, 2020. Professor Park Ju-hyeon also received the ASM-TMS Marcus Grossman Young Author Award from the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society America in 2014, the ISIJ Sawamura Award from the Iron and Steel Institute of Japan in 2017, the New Academic Award from the Minerals, Metals & Materials Society Korea in 2012, and the New Academic Award for the Best Faculty (International Paper) of the ERICA Academic Award in 2018 and 2019.
