President Putin in Person will Award the Laureates of the Global Energy International Prize 2012 PR Newswire MOSCOW, June 13, 2012 MOSCOW, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The laureates of the Global Energy International Prize 2012 - RAS academicians Valery Kostyuk and Boris Katorgin, as well as UK professor Rodney John Allam – will soon be receiving their awards from the Russian President Vladimir Putin in person. The official ceremony will be held on June 21 at 5:30 p.m. Moscow time as part of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. "The prize commands great prestige along with recognition of an exceptional contribution to science and, in a broader sense, showcases the ability to tackle our planet's energy-related challenges," noted Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev at last year's official award ceremony. The year 2012 has witnessed heightened interest among the scientific community in cryogenics and its use in the energy industry. Boris Katorgin, a Russian physicist and member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, was named a laureate of the prize for his scientific research high- efficiency liquid propellant rocket engines (LPRE) which run on cryogenic fuels. Mr. Katorgin believes that mankind today can take pride in "the breakthrough into space, harnessing atomic energy, and work on nuclear fusion." It is no coincidence that his technological developments have been used for flights into space on U.S. Atlas rockets.

/PRNewswire/ -- The laureates of the Global Energy
International Prize 2012 - RAS academicians Valery Kostyuk and Boris Katorgin,
as well as UK professor Rodney John Allam – will soon be receiving their awards
from the Russian President Vladimir Putin in person. The official ceremony will
be held on
June 21

time as part of the St. Petersburg
International Economic Forum.
"The prize commands great prestige along with recognition of an exceptional
contribution to science and, in a broader sense, showcases the ability to tackle
our planet's energy-related challenges,"
noted Russian Prime Minister Dmitry
Medvedev at last year's official award ceremony.
The year 2012 has witnessed heightened interest among the scientific
community in cryogenics and its use in the energy industry.
Boris Katorgin
, a Russian physicist and member of the Russian Academy of
Sciences, was named a laureate of the prize for his scientific research high-
efficiency liquid propellant rocket engines (LPRE) which run on cryogenic fuels.
Mr. Katorgin believes that mankind today can take pride in "
the breakthrough
into space, harnessing atomic energy, and work on nuclear fusion."
It is no
coincidence that his technological developments have been used for flights into
space on U.S. Atlas rockets.
Both doctor
Valery Kostyuk
- member of the Russian Academy of Science
and Russian Academies of Engineering and Technological Sciences
and
professor
Rodney John Allam -
leading chartered engineer and member of
the Institute of Chemical Engineers - won recognition for the development of
new processes and new equipment for production of gases and cryogenic
liquids and for the development of technologies that allow the use of these
gases for electricity production.
Mr. Kostyuk is working on the implementation of the cryogenic technology in
high-temperature superconductor materials.
"If we manage to fulfill our plans
in the energy and superconductivity spheres, we will certainly receive many
different practical solutions. In my opinion humanity is developing rapidly in this
sphere,"
Mr. Kostyuk said.
Over the last 20 years professor Allam has been working to develop new and
efficient energy systems. Right now he is focusing on a project for the use of
liquefied oxygen to obtain energy.
"I am pleased and proud to receive this
prize! It's particularly important for me to see the practical implementation of
my developments. These include the rollout of an absolutely revolutionary
energy technology which combines high energy efficiency, low capital outlays
and zero environmental impact,"
Mr. Allam said.
This year marks the 10th Anniversary of the International Global Energy Prize
Awards Ceremony.
"Among the international community our Prize has rightfully
been referred to as the 'Russian Nobel Prize.' During its short but rich history it
