FAIRLAWN, Ohio, Aug. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- (NYSE: OMN) – OMNOVA Solutions today announced its 2010 Technology Award recipients. This annual award program recognizes exemplary technological contributions by associates in OMNOVA's research and development, sales and marketing, technical service, operations, product management, LEAN SixSigma and strategic sourcing organizations.

These technological innovations in new product development and process improvements are positively impacting customers in virtually all of OMNOVA's served markets including performance chemicals for paper, carpet and coatings applications, as well as recycled films used for commercial and industrial end uses, laminates for the healthcare market and specialty commercial wallcoverings.
