MOTOROLA, EMPLOYEE EACH RECEIVE AWARD FROM U.S. EPA

 MOTOROLA, EMPLOYEE EACH RECEIVE AWARD FROM U.S. EPA
 SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola, Inc.


(NYSE: MOT), announced today that it has received the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's 1991 Stratospheric Ozone Protection corporate award. The award, from the EPA's Global Change Division, recognized Motorola's exceptional contributions to global environmental protection and was given to Motorola for "Corporate Leadership in Development and Sharing of Technology."
 In addition to the corporate award, Motorola employee Robert C. Pfahl, director of advanced manufacturing technology for Motorola's General Systems Sector, received an individual award from EPA for his role in chlorofluorocarbons elimination in electronics through the implementation of new technologies.
 Both awards were presented by EPA officials in Baltimore, during the 1991 International Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and Halon Alternatives Conference. Motorola and 21 other individuals and organizations were selected for their strong support for protection of the ozone layer and for the technical achievements that will allow the elimination of ozone- depleting substances.
 Commenting on Motorola's selection, Ralph Ponce De Leon, Motorola's vice president and corporate director, supply and environmental management, said, "CFC reduction and elimination is a worldwide problem requiring a worldwide solution. Motorola is committed to sharing information and solving the problem on as rapid a timetable as possible."
 In September 1989, Motorola announced its policy to eliminate by the end of 1992 the emission of chlorofluorocarbon chemicals that deplete the protective ozone shield. The company has made significant progress toward meeting this aggressive goal. CFCs are widely used in the electronics industry as solvents, refrigerants and fire suppressants.
 Motorola is one of the world's leading providers of electronic equipment, systems, components and services for worldwide markets. Motorola was a winner of the first Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, in recognition of its superior company-wide management of quality processes.
