AkzoNobel has chosen 20 finalists in its Imagine Chemistry competition. Now in its second year, the contest attracts applicants that pitch their ideas to AkzoNobel judges in hopes of winning a commercial partnership. Finalists offered technologies in categories including sustainable small particles, waste-water-free chemical sites, and zero-footprint surfactants. Participants include start-ups, university teams, and established research institutes. Winners will be chosen at a three-day event in June. AkzoNobel wants to help winners “turn their ideas into commercial reality with real global impact,” says CTO Peter Nieuwenhuizen.
