Skild Recognizes Green and Sustainable Chemistry Innovation Contest Finalists
The Elsevier Green and Sustainable Chemistry innovation contest is helping make living easier for those in underdeveloped countries. The competition has narrowed down the finalists from 61 candidates to only 5! This was not an easy process for the judges who had looked over 500 innovative inventions in the beginning of their judging. Skild, who is managing the competition, found this contest to be extremely inspirational and wants to commemorate the finalists for their hard work and brilliant minds. The Director of the Institute of Sustainable and Environmental Chemistry at Leuphana University, Professor Dr. Klaus Kümmerer stated: We are delighted with the response that we received from participants all over the world. The great number of submitted proposals does not only underline the importance and relevance of this topic but demonstrates that fantastic ideas and initiatives exist already, which – with more support – could make a tremendous difference.
