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
MPS technology that was developed and
commercialized through collaborative efforts.
CCP's Chempol MPS is a Sefose®
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."
