EPA Green Chemistry Challenge Award Winner
Colonial Chemical, Inc. is a winner in the 2021 EPA Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Program, specifically in the focus area of The Design of Greener Chemicals.
“Colonial’s Suga Boost technology platform is an example of a decades-old commitment to the design of greener, safer, effective surfactants for our customers and our consumers,” said David Anderson, Jr., President of Colonial Chemical. “We are honoured to be recognised for this achievement and will continue to design and innovate in this space that is critical for our country and world.”
An independent panel of technical experts convened by the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute formally judged the 2021 submissions and made recommendations to EPA for the 2021 winners.
“Green chemistry is one way to provide solutions to some of the significant environmental challenges we’re facing today, like exposure to toxic chemicals, dependence on non-renewable sources, and climate change,” said EPA Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator Michal Freedhoff. “The innovative technologies we celebrate today are great examples of how green chemistry is protecting our environment, preventing pollution at its source, and keeping U.S. business globally competitive by creating more sustainable products.”
