Energy 100 Awards
DOE Honors Its Best and Brightest
In its Energy 100 Awards, the Department of Energy (DOE) has honored 100 of its best scientific and technological accomplishments developed between 1977 and 2000. From among those 100 technologies, 23 were selected for their top-flight contribution to American consumers. The highest-ranked innovations demonstrated benefits to the American public, a contribution to U.S. competitiveness in the global marketplace and the potential for significant future growth. From those 23 "Energy @ 23. awards, the Bright Light award was given to five of the most recent consumer-oriented innovations, developed between 1999 and 2000.
Four Argonne National Laboratory innovations were on DOE's Energy 100 list:
Two of those innovations — the "green" solvents and the 308 nm excimer laser — were selected for top honors as Energy @ 23 technologies; the green solvents also were selected as a Bright Light winner.
Argonne's green solvents also have been recognized by Discover Magazine as a top innovation, and its developers were awarded the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, both in 1998. The Process to Recover and Clean Flexible Polyurethane Foam from Auto Shredder Residue won a 2000 R&D 100 Award.
