Vive Nano was recently awarded the American Chemistry Council’s Responsible Care Performance Award, which recognizes those member companies who excelled at helping ACC meet industry-wide safety and product stewardship targets. ACC Responsible Care award winners qualify based on exemplary performance, and are selected by an external expert committee. Other award winners this year include Chevron Phillips Chemical Company, ExxonMobil Chemical Company, Nova Chemicals, and Honeywell.

The ACC Responsible Care Awards Program recognizes those companies and individuals that have made an outstanding contribution to improved environmental, health, safety, and security (EHS&S) performance in the chemical sector. “Responsible Care is the chemical industry’s commitment to sustainability, enabling us to enhance environmental protection and public health, as well as improve worker safety and plant security,” said Greg Babe, chair of ACC’s Board Committee on Responsible Care and president and CEO of Bayer Corp. “The Responsible Care Awards Program recognizes those companies that are among the industry’s very best performers, those companies that are leading the way to face EHS&S challenges today, to ensure that the industry is safer and more secure.”

Vive Nano specializes in encapsulation and in developing new formulations for the crop protection industry. Vive Nano’s disruptive technology leverages green chemistry and its primary inputs are bio-inert polymers, water, and electricity. The company also received the 2010 Frost and Sullivan North American Technology of the Year Award for its nanotechnology encapsulation.

The American Chemistry Council (ACC) represents the leading companies engaged in the business of chemistry. The business of chemistry is a $674 billion enterprise and a key element of the nation's economy. It is one of the nation’s largest exporters, accounting for ten cents out of every dollar in U.S. exports.
