Dr. Yi Jiang Receives Industry Recognition from CPCIF for Advanced-Flow™ reactor Technology | Advanced-Flow™ Reactor Technology for Flow Chemistry Solutions | Corning

BEIJING, CHINA – Corning’s Dr. Yi Jiang, Innovation Officer, Corning Greater China, and Business Director, Corning Reactor Technologies, was recently recognized as one of the 2017 recipients of the, ‘Influential Leaders of China's Petroleum and Chemical Industry' award from the China Petroleum and Chemical Industrial Federation (CPCIF) and China Chemical Industry News (CCIN) during the groups’ annual award ceremony earlier this week. He was recognized for his leadership in serving the China chemical industry with Corning’s Advanced-Flow™ reactor (AFR) technology for the last seven years.

AFR technology enables the continuous processing of chemicals with a much smaller footprint and a faster reaction rate than conventional batch reactors. They also provide customers with inherently safer, more cost-effective solutions, specialized engineering support, and process expertise.

"This award means a lot to me personally. It is also a reflection of the efforts of our global AFR team who is extremely customer focused and passionate about growing this product line for Corning in China and around the globe."  - Yi Jiang
