Dow Receives 9th EPA Recognition For Green Chemistry Innovation

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) honored The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE:DOW) as one of the honorees of the 18th annual U.S. Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, for the development of EVOQUE™ Pre-Composite Polymer Technology. This win marks the ninth time that Dow and its affiliates have received this recognition, more than double any other company since the award’s inception in 1996.

“We are honored to be recognized again by the EPA,” said David E. Kepler, Chief Sustainability Officer and executive vice president of Dow. “Sustainable innovation is a driving force behind Dow’s mission and we are constantly working to develop solutions that exceed customers expectations. EVOQUE™ delivers a great combination of performance and sustainability. It’s a win-win.”

The U.S. Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award is presented annually to organizations that incorporate the principles of green chemistry into chemical design, manufacture, and use. Dow’s past recognitions span innovation across a broad number of applications, including environmentally-friendly insect control, synthetic pathways that reduce carbon dioxide waste, and an environmentally safe marine anti-foulant.

The 2013 award recognizes the innovative technology behind EVOQUE that is changing the way paint is made and allowing more effective hiding with lower environmental impact. This technology improves sustainability and performance such as rust resistance, protection and durability, while requiring less titanium dioxide, helps to reduce the paint’s carbon footprint by more than 22 percent and water consumption by 30 percent.

“Dow’s technology is just one of many examples of Green Chemistry in action – helping solve environmental problems while saving money, and reducing waste and resource use,” said Jim Jones, assistant administrator of the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention at the EPA. “When technologies like this make their way to market, the human and environmental impacts, as well as economic impacts, are real and long lasting.”
