Dow’s 2024 Edison Awards winners:

INVISU™ 7007 Water-Borne Label Adhesive won gold in the Coatings and Manufacturing category. The adhesive helps enable clean separation of film labels from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles during the recycling process, allowing them to be better designed for recyclability and transformed into high-quality recycled materials.

Predictive Intelligence (PI) won gold in the Digital Transformation and Data Governance category. It is an AI-driven initiative that uses advanced data analytics and machine learning to revolutionize the polyurethane (PU) formulation process and accelerate time to market of differentiated solutions. This flagship digitalization initiative from Dow, is a unified global data platform with an intuitive user interface that allows Dow scientists to instantly visualize, analyze and model thousands of ingredients and properties.

SPECFLEX™ CIR Polyurethane Series (formerly SPECFLEX™ C) received gold in the Circular Economy in Materials category. It is designed to help automotive OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) meet their market and regulatory demands for more circular products and reach their sustainability goals.

ECOGROUND™ AS 818 Emulsion received silver in the Future of Living category. It is an innovative sound dampening technology that uses recycled materials to create quieter, calmer buildings. It improves the acoustic performance of flooring by using recycled materials in a water-borne, easy-to-apply acrylic formulation that addresses the drawbacks of conventional prefabricated solutions.

PARALOID™ Additives received silver in the Resource Recovery and Environmental Conservation category. The additives facilitate polyvinyl butyral (PVB) upcycling for use in vinyl flooring and carpet backing applications. Although regularly used to modify the properties of PVC (polyvinyl chloride), significant innovation was required to enable the incorporation of acrylic PARALOID™ Additives into PVB recovered from windshields.

RHOBARR™ 135 Barrier Coating received silver in the Packaging and Construction Technologies category. It is a waterborne acrylic latex designed for paper and paperboard coatings in food packaging applications. This versatile emulsion is compatible with existing aqueous coating or printing methods and suitable for use in high-temperature applications such as ovens and microwaves.

The Renuva™ mattress recycling program received silver in the Circular Economy in Materials category. It revolutionizes the end-of-life fate of mattresses and enables the recycling of polyurethane foam from end-of-life mattresses into polyols for use in new mattresses and other applications.

DOWSIL™ TC-6032 Thermally Conductive Encapsulant won silver in the Energy Solutions category. It is a two-part product with a 1 to 1 ratio. This versatile and flowable solution is designed for efficient heat dissipation in electronic and electric components. Its flowable nature allows it to effortlessly fill and self-level after dispensing.

ECOSURF™ AEL-6880 Surfactant won bronze in the Environmental and Industrial Solutions category. This is a game-changer in laundry care, delivering optimal detergency, simplified formulation and reduced energy and water consumption. This innovative surfactant, crafted with safe materials is a solution tailored for use in highly concentrated detergent pods designed for cold- and low-water laundry.

ECOSENSE™ 2470 Surfactant won bronze in the Packaging and Construction Technologies category. It offers detergent manufacturers the opportunity to enhance their sustainability profile. Recycled carbon materials combine high performance with cutting-edge climate technology to enable quality and environmental benefits like reduced carbon footprint, temperature cleaning, streaking, and filming to multiple home care products such as laundry detergents and hard surface cleaners.

ELECPURE™ Technology for Electronic Processing won bronze in the Critical Human Infrastructure category. It plays a pivotal role in ensuring the cleanliness and efficiency of electronic materials. Developed with an innovative and energy-efficient purification process, ELECPURE™ electronic grade solvents remove >30 metal ion types to parts per trillion levels.

DOWSIL™ TC-5860 Thermally Conductive Compound received bronze in the Energy Solutions category. It provides photovoltaic (PV) inverters with long term reliable thermal management and performance helping to enable the global energy transition.
