EPA Green Chemistry Challenge Awards – Past and Present
Organizers: Chen Wen, Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Program, US Environmental Protection Agency; David Chichester-Constable, Science Director, ACS Green Chemistry Institute
The Green Chemistry Challenge Awards are now in their 25th year and continue to recognize leading green chemistry innovations. With over 1800 nominations and 123 award winners, there is a compelling case to be made that innovations benefitting from the application of green chemistry and engineering have achieved sufficient commercial success to justify implementation in all chemical processing sectors. The goals of the is panel are to describe the prestigious EPA Green Chemistry Challenge Awards – co-sponsored by ACS, and showcase award winners from the current and past years. The winners will describe the innovative technology they were recognized for, share lessons learned from participation, and describe the benefits of being recognized by the Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Program.
