Call for 2009 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Nominations

Call for 2009 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Nominations

Find green business solutions
Green chemistry is a difficult area to write about. I'm having problems finding California companies specializing or offering "green chemicals." Maybe this recognition program will help. If you know of companies offering green solutions, please let me know.

"EPA is now accepting nominations for the 2009 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.

EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics wishes to encourage as many nominations as possible and would greatly appreciate it if you would post this information on your Web site and disseminate this information through your list serves.

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. Each nominated technology must have reached a significant milestone within the past five years in the United States. Typically, awards are given each year in five categories:

  • Greener Synthetic Pathways
  • Greener Reaction Conditions
  • Designing Greener Chemicals
  • Small Business
  • Academic

Nominations must be sent no later than Dec. 31 to be eligible for the 2009 awards, which will be presented on June 22, 2009.

For more information on the nomination and awards process see:

You can link directly to the 2009 nomination package at: DOWNLOAD PDF .

For examples of last year's nominations and award winners, see:

If you have questions about the nomination process or awards, please write to EPA at:
