Green Chemistry Challenge Seeks Hazmat Reductions

EPA said Dec. 5 it has begun accepting nominations for the 2008 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards, which honor innovative chemical technologies that incorporate green chemistry into chemical design, manufacture, and use and have broad applications in industry. Nominated technologies should reduce or eliminate hazardous substances used in or resulting from a chemical product or process.

Any individual, group, or organization may nominate a green chemistry technology for the awards. The five awards typically made go to an academic researcher, a small business, and to larger companies for specific areas of green chemistry. Last year's nominations and winners are available online at www.epa.gov/opptintr/greenchemistry/pubs/pgcc/past.html.

The 2008 awards will be presented at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., on June 24, 2008. For more information, visit epa.gov/greenchemistry/pubs/pgcc/howto.html.
