EPA Seeks Nominations for Green Chemistry Challenge Awards

EPA is now accepting nominations for the 2008 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards. These awards recognize innovative chemical technologies that incorporate green chemistry into chemical design, manufacture and use -- and that have broad applications in industry.

Nominated technologies should reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances from a chemical product or process. Any individual, group or organization, both nonprofit and for-profit, including academia and industry, may nominate a green chemistry technology for these awards. Self-nominations are welcome and expected.

Typically, five awards are given each year: one to an academic researcher, one to a small business, and the others to larger companies for specific areas of green chemistry. Each nominated technology must have reached a significant milestone within the past five years in the United States. For examples of last year's nominations and award winners, visit http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/greenchemistry/pubs/pgcc/past.html.

Nominations must be sent no later than Dec. 31, to be eligible for the 2008 awards, which will be presented at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., on June 24, 2008. For more information, go to http://www.epa.gov/greenchemistry/pubs/pgcc/howto.html.
