The Tech Museum of Innovation, announced MBA Polymers as a 2006 Tech Museum Awards Laureate. The Tech Museum of Innovation, located in San Jose, California, named 25 Laureates for the Tech Museum Awards Program, presented by Applied Materials, Inc., which celebrates those who leverage new and existing technologies to benefit humanity.

MBA Polymers has been named a Laureate for the INTEL ENVIRONMENT AWARD.

For every ton of virgin plastics that is replaced by MBA’s recovered plastic, between two and three tons of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide is kept from entering the atmosphere. Also, MBA requires less than 10% of the energy to make the same amount of plastics as a typical virgin plant.

On November 15, 2006, at the Tech Museum Awards Gala, hosted by member of the Tech Museum’s Board of Directors, Steve Young, leaders from Silicon Valley and delegates from the United Nations will honor all 25 Laureates, and one Laureate from each of the five categories will be awarded a $50,000 cash honorarium.

In addition to the 25 Laureates being honored, Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, will be presented with the 2006 James C. Morgan Global Humanitarian Award, sponsored by Applied Materials.

“The Tech Museum Awards, presented by Applied Materials, Inc., are an incredibly important way to call attention to some of the most meaningful innovations in science and technology in the world, and to the often unsung heroes behind them,” said Peter Friess, president of The Tech.
