U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Green Chemistry Awards.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is accepting nominations for the 2004 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards. These prestigious presidential rank awards recognize innovative chemical technologies that incorporate "green" chemistry into chemical design, manufacture, and use. Green chemistry is the use of chemistry to prevent pollution.

Nominated technologies should reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances from a chemical product or process. Any individual, group, or organization, either nonprofit or for-profit, including academia, government, and industry, may nominate a green chemistry technology for these awards. Self-nominations are welcome and expected.

Typically, five awards are given each year: one to an academic researcher, one to a small business, and the rest in specific areas of green chemistry. A nominated technology must have reached a significant milestone within the past five years in the United States. Nominations must be postmarked by 31 December 2003 to be eligible for the 2004 awards, which will be presented at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., on 28 June 2004.
