ADM Executive Receives Green Chemistry Award

In 2014, Dr. Todd Werpy, ADM’s senior vice president, Research and Development, and Chief Technology Officer, received the American Chemical Society Affordable Green Chemistry award for his work in producing bio-based propylene glycol economically on a commercial scale.

ADM’s first-in-the industry process can produce 100,000 metric tons per year of propylene glycol from renewable sources. The resulting bio-based product meets all of the same U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) and industrial specifications as petroleum-based propylene glycol.

Werpy shared the award with Dr. John Frye and Mr. Alan Zacher of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, Washington.
