Professor L.-S. Fan was recently elected an International Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE), which usually only accepts one or two foreign fellows a year. The Induction Ceremony is scheduled for June 20, 2023 in Victoria, British Columbia.

The Canadian Academy of Engineering comprises over 800 Fellows who have made outstanding contributions to engineering in Canada and around the world. Fellows of the Academy are nominated and elected by their peers in view of their distinguished achievements, career-long service, and demonstrated dedication to the application of science and engineering principles to advance social, environmental, economic and technical solutions. Fellows work closely with, and are generally members of, other national and provincial engineering associations. 

Fan, who has been a member of the National Academy of Engineering since 2001, is also a fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE), an independent body of 800 eminent Australian engineers and scientists. When he was elected in 2013, he was the sole foreign fellow accepted into the academy. The same year, he was named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors.

In addition, Professor Fan is a member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (foreign member, 2009), the Mexican Academy of Sciences (foreign member, 2005), Academia Sinica (academician, 2006), the Indian National Academy of Engineering (foreign member, 2019), the American Association for Advancement of Science (fellow, 2000), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE; fellow, 2000), the American Society of Engineering Education (member), and the American Chemical Society (fellow, 2022).

Professor Fan has received over 85 awards in recognition of his research, teaching and service including the AIChE Warren K. Lewis Award for Engineering Education, the American Chemical Society (ACS) Energy and Fuels Division (ENFL) Distinguished Researcher Award, the ACS Murphree Award in Industrial Engineering and Chemistry, the AIChE Alpha Chi Sigma Award in Chemical Engineering Research, the Wilhelm Award in Chemical Reaction Engineering, and the 67th Institute Lectureship Awards, the ASEE Dow Lectureship, the 6th Annual Global Distinguished Lectureship at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in Daejeon, Korea, the Council for Chemical Research Pruitt Award, the R&D 100 Award, the International Fluidization Achievement Award, the International Pitt Award for Innovation in Coal Conversion, and the Joseph Sullivant Medal of The Ohio State University.
