Cook Composites and Polymers Co. (CCP) recently received the 2009 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award for Designing Greener Chemicals. Each year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administers the program on behalf of the White House. The Challenge is designed to recognize individuals, companies and technologies that incorporate sustainable chemistry into their product formulations, manufacturing processes and end-use applications. This award was jointly presented to Cook Composites and Polymers and Procter & Gamble Chemicals (P&G) based on the Chempol® MPS technology that was developed and commercialized through collaborative efforts.

CCP's Chempol MPS is a Sefose®-based alkyd resin technology that enables formulation of paints and coatings with significantly fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than traditional, solvent-borne alkyd coatings. Chempol MPS alkyd resins are specially formulated to perform like petroleum-based polymers while delivering both an improved environmental profile and an enhanced consumer usage experience.

"CCP is proud of this technological breakthrough,” said Ken Moran, vice president of sales and marketing for CCP. “We appreciate the close working relationship with P&G Chemicals, which allowed us to combine their Sefose technology with our chemistry and formulation expertise. This collaboration was instrumental in the development of this green product solution."
