The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge promotes pollution prevention through an EPA Design for the Environment partnership with the chemistry community. Through high level recognition and support, the Challenge promotes innovative developments in and uses of green chemistry for pollution prevention. EPA's Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics (OPPT) is leading this voluntary partnership program with other EPA offices, other federal agencies, members of the chemical industry, trade associations, scientific organizations, and academia.
The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Program is an opportunity for individuals, groups, and organizations to compete for annual awards in recognition of innovations in cleaner, cheaper, smarter chemistry. The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Program provides national recognition of outstanding chemical technologies that incorporate the principles of green chemistry into chemical design, manufacture, and use, and that have been or can be utilized by industry in achieving their pollution prevention goals.
The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Program recognizes approximately five individuals and organizations each year. One award is made to each of the following:
A small business* for a project in any of the scope focus areas,
An academic investigator for a project in any of the scope focus areas,
Any sponsor for a project in focus area 1 (the use of alternative synthetic pathways for green chemistry),
Any sponsor for a project in focus area 2 (the use of alternative reaction conditions for green chemistry), and
Any sponsor for a project in focus area 3 (the design of chemicals for green chemistry).
