Prof. Sorensen remarked:

 "It is a tremendous honour for me to have received an MBE. I became an academic because I enjoy working with the sort of brilliant young people we have at UCL. Over the years, I have taken great satisfaction from seeing thousands of graduates going through our chemical engineering programmes and becoming professional engineers, working in a wide range of sectors. Throughout this time, I have been proud to work with IChemE to promote the discipline, and I hope I have made some contribution to the vital work that chemical engineers are doing in solving some of the pressing global challenges that we are currently facing, particularly on sustainability, climate change and global health.”
