CPI Seeks Entries for Innovation Award

The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council recently announced a call for entries for its 2011 Polyurethane Innovation Award. The award winner will be announced during the closing session of the Polyurethanes 2011 Technical Conference, which will take place September 26-28 in Nashville, TN. Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. EDT on August 12.

“CPI’s Polyurethane Innovation Award recognizes the ingenuity and foresight of companies and individuals whose visions and perseverance bring new products, technologies and initiatives to the marketplace,” said Lee Salamone, senior director. “With this award, CPI promotes the roles that innovation and advancements in technology play in the polyurethane industry.”

Award nominations may include finished products, initiatives, training or education programs, or processes or processing equipment. Entries must represent new ideas, technologies or processes that have not been previously submitted for the Innovation Award or in the marketplace longer than 12 months prior to this year’s submission deadline. All eligible submissions will be evaluated by a panel of judges comprising experts who represent technical disciplines and the polyurethane supply chain.
