This award will be judged on its value to the chemicals industry as well as its commercial viability. Finding the sweet spot between something that is truly innovative that can also be used in the industry today is the way to win our judges’ favour.

Sustainability will be at the core of your innovation, while there is a specific section to highlight your innovation’s sustainability credentials, it is important to bring everything back to sustainability throughout your entry form to show how the innovation considers this factor throughout it’s development cycle.
To recognise the breadth of innovation in the chemical sector, ICIS Innovation Awards are given in six categories.
As well as a winner in each category, ICIS selects an overall winner each year, chosen from the five category winners.
