RadTech, the non-profit trade association for high-tech ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) processes, is now accepting nominations for its new Sustainability Achievement Awards. UV and EB are widely used in printing, electronics, wood, plastics and various other industrial operations as a way to significantly reduce harmful emissions and cut energy use.
“Today, sustainability is on the minds of everyone,” said Doreen M. Monteleone, Ph.D., director of sustainability & EHS initiatives. “Through this new awards program, applicants will be highlighting the many sustainability advantages of UV/EB technology. RadTech is looking forward to celebrating those accomplishments.”
Award winners will offer real world descriptions of how UV/EB technology improves the sustainability of manufactures including reductions in emissions, hazardous chemicals, water, energy and transportation; improved safety and health benefits; and better return on investment. Award winners will be honored at the biennial RadTech UV/EB Technology Expo & Conference 2014, May 12-14, in Chicago, IL, USA.
