Richard Berry Receives TAPPI Nanotechnology Division’s First Technical Award

Atlanta, GA | Posted on May 22nd, 2014

"During a distinguished career covering almost four decades Richard Berry's dedication and hard work have made major contributions that have advanced the industry's knowledge and understanding, and his contributions to the science of nanotechnology, including the development of cellulose nanocrystals, have contributed to the great strides made in this area in recent years," notes Larry N. Montague, TAPPI President and CEO. "This is the first Technical Award to be given by the TAPPI's International Nanotechnology Division and Dr. Berry is an ideal choice for this inaugural award."

Berry is currently Vice President and Chief Technology Officer for CelluForce. Prior to moving to CelluForce in 2011 he was Principal Scientist and leader of the nanotechnology initiative at FPInnovations. During his career he's achieved numerous scientific accomplishments and had long experience overseeing the industrial application of numerous inventions. He's received many awards including the Nano-industry award from Nano Québec for his exceptional contribution to the development of cellulose nanocrystals, the Purvis Memorial Award and he's been named one of Canada's Clean 50 honourees. The initiatives Dr. Berry has spearheaded in recent years have allowed Canada to position itself as a world leader in the development of the new nanotechnology industry. This work was recognised through the 2012 NSERC Synergy award for innovation given to McGill University, FPInnovations, ArboraNano, and CelluForce and culminated in the awarding of the 2013 Marcus Wallenberg prize to Derek Gray of McGill University for his pioneering work on this material.

Berry has taught numerous courses for TAPPI and PAPTAC and is a TAPPI Fellow. He holds seventeen patents and has published more than ninety articles and two monographs. He received a B.A. in Chemistry and Geology from Keele University and Ph.D. in Chemistry from McGill University.
