Dow Wins Presidential Award For Green Paint Ingredient
EPA has awarded Dow a Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award for its EVOQUETM Pre-Composite Polymer. Among other attributes, according to EPA, EVOQUETM is expected to improve titanium dioxide (TiO2)-based paints. "Dow's EVOQUETM technology uses a polymer coating that, when applied to TiO2, improves dispersion of the pigment, decreasing the amount of the chemical needed and allowing it to work better. This technology will significantly reduce energy usage, water consumption, NOx and SOx emissions, and algae bloom." More information is available online and here.
