Award Submission Format

1. A cover page with the

a) Project title followed by the date of the nomination.

b) Primary sponsor(s) : The individual or organizational owner of the technology. For academic nominations, the primary sponsor is usually the principal investigator. For nominations with more than one sponsor, each co-sponsor should have had a significant role in the research, development, or implementation of the technology.

c) Contact person :
The one individual with whom we should communicate regarding the nomination. For academic nominations, the contact person is usually the principal investigator.

d) Contributors (optional) :
Those individuals or organizations that have provided financial or technical support for development or implementation of the nominated technology.

2. The second page should contain the following information :

> Project title.

> Short description of the most recent milestone(s), with date(s), that the nominated technology has reached within the past three years. One or two lines are sufficient. Examples include, but are not limited to: critical discovery made, results published, patent application submitted or approved, pilot plant constructed, and technology implemented or commercialized. Only one milestone is required.

> A sentence indicating whether the nominated technology is eligible for which category of the award.

> Identification of the focus area (or areas) that fit your technology. No explanation is needed.

> Description of the research, development, or aspects of the technology that occurred within the Indian context

> Abstract not to exceed 350 words that describes the nominated technology, the problem it addresses, and its benefits. Include the state of implementation of the technology and any quantitative benefits such as amount (or potential amount) of hazardous substances eliminated. Organizers plans to publish shortlisted abstracts in IGCW-2009 electronic publications.

> Note: An executive summary is not necessary.

The information in this section should fit on page 2, but you may continue on page 3 if necessary.

3. The remaining pages should explain in detail how the nominated technology meets the scope of the program and the selection criteria. Explain the following :

> The chemistry of the new technology, emphasizing how the technology is innovative and of scientific merit. Consider including chemical structure diagrams rather than text to describe your chemistry. Patent numbers or references to peer-reviewed publications may strengthen your nomination. The judges recognize the interdisciplinary nature of green chemistry; however, to be eligible for an award, your technology must include a significant chemistry component.

> The problem (environmental or human health risk) that your technology addresses, the importance of that problem, and how your technology solves the problem.

> How your technology compares with other technologies that may address the same problem.

> The realized or potential benefits and drawbacks across all stages of your technology's lifecycle: from feedstocks to manufacture to use of the product to ultimate disposal of the product.

4. For Industrial participant also attach Company profile in approximately 300 words.

IMPORTANT: To make the strongest presentation of your technology for the judges, you should include as much nonproprietary detail as possible in your nomination. The judges will pay close attention to the specifics of your chemistry, including detailed reaction pathways, comparisons to existing technology, toxicity data, quantities of hazardous substances reduced or eliminated, degree of implementation in commerce, and other technical, human health, environmental, and economic benefits. The judges recognize that some sponsors will not be able to conduct a full lifecycle analysis, but like to see a discussion of impacts across the lifecycle. In addition, we strongly encourage you to compare the cost, performance, and environmental profile of your technology with any competing technologies. This may help you demonstrate the broad applicability of your technology.

It may help the judges if you address the status of any novel chemical substances or organisms under any appropriate laws especially if the technology is or is about to be commercially available.

You may include structure diagrams, tables, other graphics, and references, but all information must fit within the eight-page limit.

You may nominate more than one technology, but you must submit a separate nomination for each technology. You should probably combine multiple applications of the same general technology in a single nomination, however.

All entries received will be considered public information. No material will be returned. Program sponsors are not responsible for lost or damaged entries. We will acknowledge receipt of nominations, usually by email to the person listed as the Contact Person. If you have not received an acknowledgment by last week of October, please contact the award co-ordinator Ms. Meenakshi Singh, at OR contact for information at (022)-28791835.

Submit an electronic copy of the nomination in such a format that we can select and copy text from it. Please include the primary sponsor's name in the file name. It may be to your advantage to submit your nomination as a PDF file to minimize possible reading errors, but we will accept and be able to read all common file types.

  • The IGCW Conferences have established a unique niche in bringing together key stakeholders of Green Chemistry in India and providing them a platform to share experiences and best practices. I am sure in the years to come they will vastly strength the awareness of Green Chemistry and become a catalyst for change for the Chemical Industry of India. My very good wishes for continued success.

  • Huge congrats for organizing such a great green chemistry conference. I enjoyed every bit of it. Those two days provided me real feedback about Indian industries approach towards green chemistry. My 180 degree seminar was highly appreciated by the audience and several industries are now in touch with me for some serious collaboration. It was great event and you should have it every year. You should also invite more active academicians in the field. Once again I like to congratulate both of you for the success of this event.
