On February 7th 2:00p.m. ET, National Academy of Engineering released the list of new academicians. Hao Jiming, academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, president of IEEPA, was elected as foreign academician of National Academy of Engineering ¡®for leadership in the development and implementation of air pollution control theory, strategy, and technologies¡¯. President Hao is the first Chinese scholar in environmental engineering field who is awarded this prize.

Hao Jiming graduated from Tsinghua University in 1970. In 1981, he graduated from Tsinghua University with a master degree in environmental engineering. In 1984, he graduated from university of Cincinnati with a PDF in environmental engineering. In 1999, he was elected as first merit professor of the Yangtze River Scholar Award Program by Ministry of Education. In 2005, he was elected as an academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering. He used to be the dean of  Research Institute of Environmental Science and Engineering, Tsinghua University, vice chairman of 10th academic degree evaluation committee of Tsinghua University, director of the Ministry of Environmental Science and Engineering teaching committee, vice chairman of Chinese Society For Environmental Sciences. Now he is vice director of Education Committee of Tsinghua University, dean of Research Institute of Environmental Science and Engineering ,Tsinghua University, director of Tsinghua University Global Environment Research, president of IEEPA. He is also member of the National Advisory Council on the Environment, member of the Fourth China Council for International Cooperation in Environment and Development, member of the Engineering and Environmental Committee of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations, chief editor of ¡®Frontiers of Environmental Science & Engineering¡¯.

Hao Jiming Had over 10 times of prizes and awards, including the 1st and 2nd Prize of National Science & Technology Progress, the 1st Prize of National Natural Science Award, the 2nd Prize of State Technological Invention Award. He also won the Haagen-Smit Clean Air Awards and became the first Chinese scientist who won this prize. He has been continuously awarded Elsevier Chinese Most Cited Researchers for four years since 2014. He is also the speaker of ¡®National Great Course¡¯ and won st Prize of National Higher Education Teaching Achievement . In 2006, he was elected as nationally outstanding teacher.

Hao Jiming dedicated 40 years of his research to studying air pollution control, successively designing the current mitigation plan towards acid deposition, and he played a leading role in facilitating the current national countermeasures against further deposition from acid rain due to sulfur-dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition, he presided over the establishment of urban vehicle pollution control, planning currently used methods to control transportation pollution. He intensely developed the study and classification of the characteristics of atmospheric complex pollution. By studying the cause and control strategy of pollution of in mega-cities, he was able to develop the theory and technique of improving air quality in megacities and this method of operation has been promoted around China to help control regional atmospheric pollution.

Academician of National Academy of Engineering is one of the highest honor in the engineering field. There is 83 new academicians and 16 new foreign academicians this time. By now, National Academy of Engineering has awarded 2293 academicians and 262 foreign academicians.
