to Prevent Pollution

OPPT's Green Chemistry Program works with the chemical community to promote the environmentally conscious design of chemical products and processes that are safer to human health and the environment. The Program's flagship activity, the annual Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards, encourages and recognizes the significant scientific, economic, human health, and environmental benefits that green chemistry technologies offer. 

The Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Awards Program celebrated its 13th year at the June 2008 awards ceremony. To date the Program has given out 67 awards -- 14 awards to academic researchers, 13 awards to small businesses, and 40 awards to larger businesses and organizations.
