Professor Paul Anastas, a pioneer in the field of green chemistry, was recently honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
Earlier this summer, the Italian Chemical Society awarded Anastas the SCI “Silver Seal” Medal, for his contributions to the development of green chemistry worldwide.
In 2016 he was awarded the prestigious Royal Society of Chemistry Award. For that honor Anastas was invited this summer to deliver a series of UK lectures, including at the University of York, the University of Oxford, and Queen’s University Belfast.
“I never view any award that I receive as being for one individual,” Anastas said. “Rather it is recognition of the worldwide community of green chemists that I am proud to be a part.”
