Green Chemistry Challenge Nominations
Each year the high-quality of nominations makes the judging panel's job very difficult, and many outstanding technologies do not win awards. For some, the technology was too new to demonstrate commercial feasibility; others could not include sufficient detail about proprietary chemistry.
EPA is publishing information on each nominated technology to provide an educational resource, credit developers, and further the adoption of green chemistry: Use the information here to identify green chemistry technologies in various geographic and interest areas.
- Sortable table of all nominated technologies, including sponsor, title of technology, city, state, and abstract
- Download similar information about all nominated technologies as either
- Final published summaries of nominated and award-winning technologies are available for most years of the program.
Note: From EPA's first Green Chemistry Challenge Awards in 1996, through the 2020 awards cycle, organizations and individuals have submitted 1,807 nominations for awards. Of these nominations, 136 did not meet the scope of the program, and so were not eligible for awards. Because a sponsor may nominate a particular technology in more than one year, the 1,671 eligible nominations through 2020 represent only 939 unique technologies (i.e., "all nominations"). Of these 939 technologies, 123 have won Green Chemistry Challenge Awards.
