Nalco has been won the 2008 Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award for its 3D Trasar technology.
The firm was bestowed the award for the 'greener reaction conditions' area at a ceremony at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington DC on Tuesday evening (June 24th).
An independent panel of experts selected the winners from almost 100 nominations.
The firm claims more than 5,000 customer locations used its 3d Trasar technology in the US, Canada and Europe saving an estimated 40.2 billion gallons of water.
