Louw received the best poster award for her poster “Morphologies, X-ray parameters, and burnout comparisons of inertinite-rich and vitrinite-rich South African bituminous coal derived chars.” *
Castro-Marcano took honorable mention in the best paper category with his paper, “Fine structure evaluation of the pair correlation function with molecular ‘slice’ models of the Argonne Premium coals.”** Co-authors on the paper included researchers from the Argonne National Laboratory and Brown University.

The International Pittsburgh Coal Conference (PCC) is hosted by the University of Pittsburgh, Swanson School of Engineering. It is an outgrowth of a series of conferences spanning more than three decades, and dealing with coal utilization both in the United States and internationally.
