The award, presented by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, recognizes outstanding technological and chemical design innovations that incorporate green chemistry principles and can be effectively utilized in industry for pollution prevention. Awards are presented in five categories with the winners chosen by an independent panel of experts from the American Chemical Society.

"It is truly an honor to receive this award and we would like to thank the EPA and the judges for their consideration," said Michael J. Collins, president and CEO of CEM Corporation. "The betterment of our world through chemistry and innovative technology is a goal we have worked toward since CEM was established thirty years ago. It is our hope that Sprint and the other scientific instruments we design will enable scientists and industry to improve their chemical processes and tests in an economical and environmentally-friendly manner that will continue to be beneficial for generations to come."

The Sprint Rapid Protein Analyzer is a revolutionary technology that will replace the Kjeldahl test, which utilizes large volumes of hazardous chemicals, as the primary method for protein determination. Sprint uses CEM's iTAG(TM) Technology to directly "tag" the protein with an environmentally-benign solution, yielding accurate results in minutes. The adaptation of the Sprint System for protein determination in foods will eliminate the estimated 2.5 million kilograms of hazardous waste used in Kjeldahl tests every year in the US. Sprint's method is approved by AOAC International and the American Association of Cereal Chemists (AACC).

CEM Corporation is a private company based in Matthews, North Carolina and the leading global provider of microwave laboratory instrumentation for bioscience, chemical synthesis, analytical, and compositional testing applications, which in many instances have helped reduce or eliminate the amount of chemicals utilized in these applications. CEM's products are used in the pharmaceutical, biotech, chemical, environmental, and food processing industries, as well as in academic research.
