Commodity chemicals giant Dow has won four Business Intelligence Group (BIG) 2019 Sustainability Awards in recognition of the sustainability practices that have been integrated into its operations.

In a press release announcing its awards success, Dow said that sustainability is becoming central to the prosperity of the global economy.

The firm took home the awards for Sustainability Initiative of the Year for Dow Polyurethanes’ RENUVA Mattress Project (which recycles polyurethane foam from end-of-life mattresses); and three Sustainability Product of the Year awards for Dow PRIMAL Bio-Based Acrylic Emulsion (leveraging plant-sourced carbon rather than petroleum-based options), DOWSIL Reworkable Thermal Conductive Silicone Gel (enhancing the sustainability of consumer electronics manufacturing), and RENUVA Polyols (generating high-value raw materials from recycled end-of-life mattresses for myriad applications).

“Dow’s innovation engine continues to deliver breakthrough technologies that meet our customers’ needs, while delivering solutions for the world’s toughest challenges,” said A N Sreeram, Senior Vice President for Research and Development, and Chief Technology officer for Dow, in the company’s press release.

Sustainability is a driving force in today’s global economy. As part of our 2025 Sustainability Goals, our teams are working hard to deliver breakthrough sustainable chemistry innovations.
