Award of $5,000 to a USA, Canada, or International individual or team to recognize environmentally-friendly chemistry innovation. Consideration will be given to discoveries that lead the way for sustainable manufacturing processes or products at a cost less than or comparable to that of current technologies, or discoveries that deliver new applications with compelling cost/benefit profiles.
Priority may be given to nominees that represent organizations in a position to directly commercialize, or organizations that can participate in commercialization through technology transfer (i.e., academic institutions that have technology licensing programs).
Affordability and practicality of a qualified application are evidenced by discoveries that:
- Conform to existing manufacturing infrastructures with little or no additional investment in equipment or personnel to operate the manufacturing process,
- Or are totally new products whose economics are compelling even after considering market prices for currently available alternatives, costs of starting materials, manufacturing yield and throughput, manufacturing labor, and equipment and facilities costs.
Nominee eligibility is neither contingent on the timeframe in which the technology was developed, nor on demonstrated commercial success. Discoveries must have significant commercial potential, however, to be considered for award.
