Nominations Being Accepted for 10th Annual Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards

EPA is now accepting nominations for the 2005 Presidential Green
Chemistry Challenge Awards. These prestigious awards recognize
innovative chemical technologies that incorporate green chemistry into
chemical design, manufacture and use ­ and that have broad applications
in industry. GGreen Chemistry strives to develop alternative ways to
synthesize industrial chemicals in order to reduce or prevent the
generation of environmental pollutants.

Any individual, group or organization, both nonprofit and for profit,
including academia, government 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 rest in specific areas of green chemistry. EPA has given 46 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards. Each nominated technology must have reached a significant milestone within the past five years in the United States.

Nominations must be postmarked by Dec. 31, 2004, to be eligible for the
2005 awards. The 2005 awards, marking the 10th year of the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge, will be presented at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., on June 20, 2005. More information on the Green Chemistry Program is available at:

nomination process is available at: http://www.epa.gov/greenchemistry/wanted.html_______________________________________________
