Roberta Magarotto, Director of Development at BASF Construction Chemicals Europe, has received an award of the Committee for the Organisation of International Conferences for her outstanding contributions in the area of concrete technology and chemical admixtures.

The award was presented at the International Conference on Superplasticisers and Other Chemical Admixtures in Concrete in Ottawa, Canada, on 15 July. The award recognises internationally known scientists, engineers and researchers who have made significant and sustained contributions in the subject area of the current conference.

Roberta Magarotto started working for BASF in 1994 after her graduation in Industrial Chemistry from the University Ca’Foscari in Venice. Her team was first to develop water-reducing additives for concrete based on polycarboxylate ether – a technology with a demand which is still growing worldwide.
