Chemical Society announces EPA awards for environmentally friendly technology

and transform it into a more benign polyvinyl alcohol. Engineered by bacteria, a renewable resource, the enzyme represents a safe, biodegradable alternative to hazardous industrial solvents.

Engelhard Corporation (Iselin, N.J.) This company has crafted a colorful niche: developing a line of environmentally friendly pigments. Unlike traditional pigments, Rightfit pigments lack heavy metals. Instead, scientists adapt and improve classic azo chemistry by conducting chemical reactions, often using calcium and strontium, in water-based solutions that work without using volatile organic compounds. The resulting pigments are durably vibrant and heat-stable able to withstand temperatures over 260 degrees Celsius. Rightfit pigments are used to add color to mustard and ketchup bottles, coffee containers, motor oil and antifreeze cartons, and many other products.

Since 1996, the 46 Green Chemistry Award winners have contributed to the environment by eliminating 387 million pounds and 9.1 million gallons of hazardous substances, saving 440 million gallons of water, and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 170 million pounds.

The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Ceremony is part of the annual Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference, held this year June 28-30 at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. More information is available at http://chemistry.org/meetings/greenchem2004.html.
