U.S. EPA TO GIVE 1993 STRATOSPHERIC OZONE PROTECTION AWARD TO MOTOROLA

 SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola said today that it will receive a 1993 Stratospheric Ozone Protection Award from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The award will be presented to Motorola by EPA officials at the 1993 International CFC (chlorofluorocarbon) and Halon Alternatives Conference, Thursday evening, Oct. 21, 1993. The award is for Motorola's leadership role in CFC elimination technology exchange with Malaysian electronics companies. This award marks the second instance in three years that the EPA has recognized Motorola for its environmental efforts.
 "The EPA Stratospheric Protection Awards recognize corporations that have demonstrated exceptional leadership, personal dedication, and technical achievements in eliminating ozone-depleting substances," said Paul Stolpman, acting director of the Office of Atmospheric Programs. "I congratulate them for setting a standard of environmental excellence and for inspiring others to strive to protect the earth for future generations."
 Motorola said it has established an office in its Kuala Lumpur operations where Malaysian companies can seek technical information on state-of-the-art technology and chemical solvent use. The company is organizing workshops and technical meetings, internships and factory visits to companies that have already made the successful transition to CFC-free technologies.
 Motorola received an EPA Stratospheric Protection Award in 1991 for sharing its CFC elimination techniques with other companies. In July, 1993, Motorola announced it had totally eliminated CFC emissions in its manufacturing processes worldwide.
 Motorola is one of the world's leading providers of wireless communications and electronic equipment, systems, components and services for worldwide markets. Sales in 1992 were $13.3 billion.
