A prize for innovation in chemistry for sustainable materials

The intention is to reward a scientist of international standing in the field of materials

Arkema and the French Académie des sciences are launching a Prize for Innovation in Chemistry for Sustainable Materials, in the sum of €25,000, is intended to reward a scientist of international standing in the field of materials. It specifically rewards scientific work that contributes to the development of innovative materials at the service of environmental protection and sustainability. This could for example include biosourced, recyclable, high-performance, and lightweight materials for renewable energy, sustainable construction, or mobility.

Arkema has a long history of breakthroughs in innovative and environmentally-friendly materials, from Rilsan® Polyamide 11 to the very latest Pebax® Rnew® elastomers for sports shoes, the Elium® resin for recyclable wind turbine blades, the Kizen™ bonding technology for more sustainable packaging, the Sartomer® photocure resins for coatings and 3D printing, and a number of solutions for developing high-performance electric batteries.

The Group is keen to encourage research in these areas, which are key for society at large, by joining forces with the prestigious Académie des sciences. With its multidisciplinary approach and very high academic standards, the Academy is committed to scientific development, promotes science education, and fosters the transfer of knowledge as well as international cooperation.

Thanks to the generosity of donors and of both public and private partners, the Académie des sciences awards numerous prizes, scholarships and medals every year. These awards honor accomplished scientists or support young researchers early on in their careers. Through these awards, the Académie des sciences directly contributes to its mission of championing the world of science.
