On June 10, 2019, at 5:00 p.m., the American Chemical Society (ACS) will hold the 2019 Green Chemistry Challenge Awards ceremony in Washington, D.C.  Sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP), in partnership with the ACS Green Chemistry Institute® and members of the chemical community, these prestigious annual awards recognize chemical technologies that incorporate the principles of green chemistry into chemical design, manufacture, and use. 

EPA usually presents one Green Chemistry Challenge Award in each award category.  For the 2019 competition, there are five award categories:

  • Focus Area 1:  Greener Synthetic Pathways;
  • Focus Area 2:  Greener Reaction Conditions;
  • Focus Area 3:  The Design of Greener Chemicals;
  • Small Business (for a technology in any of the three focus areas developed by a small business); and
  • Academic (for a technology in any of the three focus areas developed by an academic researcher).
