Arlington, VA— The Alliance for the Polyurethanes Industry (API) issued a call for entries for 2006 Polyurethane “Innovation Award” nominations and has expanded this year’s award program to include three categories – Pioneering, Products and Technology.

Finalists will be selected and winners will be announced at the API Polyurethanes 2006 Technical Conference, “Experience New Heights,” held in Salt Lake City, Utah, September 25-27.

“Discovering new and brilliant applications is an integral part of our industry, and this year’s award program will shine the spotlight on products and technologies that have made history in the past, as well as those that will continue to aid in the advancement of polyurethanes well into the future.” says Dick Mericle of API.

API Innovation Award categories are described below:

  • Pioneering Category: Product-Technology Innovations from 1937 to 1987.
  • Products Category: End Use/Finished Product Innovations from 1988 to present.
  • Technology Category: Technology Innovations (chemistry, processing, etc.) from 1988 to present.

Companies or individuals interested in entering the award program must submit an application no later than 5:00 p.m. EDT on August 4, 2006.
