Abbott Receives the Illinois Governor's Pollution Prevention Award for

Sixth Time in Last Seven Years

ABBOTT PARK, Ill., Nov. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Abbott has received the annual Illinois Governor's Pollution Prevention Award for outstanding environmental excellence for the sixth time in the last seven years.

The 21st annual Governor's Pollution Prevention Awards recognize businesses and organizations in Illinois for significant achievements in protecting the environment and strengthening the economy. The award is administered by the Waste Management and Research Center (WMRC), a division of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

"These businesses and organizations have proven that pollution prevention makes good sense for the environment and economic health of Illinois," said George Vander Velde, director, WMRC. "They have improved their pollution prevention goals and saved millions of dollars in pollution control, waste disposal, energy and raw material costs."

Abbott was recognized for implementing pollution prevention projects at its pharmaceutical fermentation manufacturing operations in North Chicago, Ill., in 2006. These included making changes to two manufacturing processes that saved more than 3 million gallons of water a year. Abbott also adjusted another process to reduce the use of solvents and, in a different project, was able to segregate isopropyl alcohol (IPA) from other process materials for reuse, thereby minimizing the amount of IPA in the waste stream.

"Receiving this award affirms our belief at Abbott that reducing consumption and waste, and using more environmentally friendly materials, is critically important for our business and the local communities where our employees live and work," said John C. Landgraf, senior vice president, Global Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Supply, Abbott. "These initiatives demonstrate that resource conservation projects can achieve
