SABIC won 3 gold and 2 bronze awards in three different areas for its new products and solutions. These areas include "Food and Agriculture", "Materials Science" and "Sustainability". These awards reflect SABIC's commitment to pushing the boundaries of science, technology and innovation and to defining the future of chemistry that enables SABIC and its customers to tackle some of the world's greatest challenges.
"SABIC is proud to be recognized for the third year in a row by the Edison Awards, demonstrating our continued leadership in new technological advances and innovation. These are key elements of our continued business growth on our journey to be the world leader of choice in products chemicals and provide innovative solutions for the future that create a more sustainable world," said Abdulrahman Al-Fageeh, CEO of SABIC.
The diversity of the award categories reflects SABIC's wide range of innovative solutions.
In particular, for its contribution to sustainability, the Edison Awards recognized SABIC's collaboration in the innovative development of a frozen food packaging solution that uses recycled plastic sourced from the ocean. Recognized as a gold award winner in the "Green Remediation" category, the solution uses SABIC's TRUCIRCLE™ certified circular polyethylene made from raw material sourced from post-consumer plastic waste recovered from ocean and river feed zones. The solution was designed in collaboration with the manufacturer of flexible film products Polivouga and the owner of the brand Nueva Pescanova Group, specialized in products such as frozen seafood, making it a truly circular product.
In the "Advances in Food and Agriculture" category, SABIC was recognized as a gold award winner for its Blue Urea solution, a low-carbon, sustainable nitrogen fertilizer. SABIC Agri-Nutrients produced the product using ammonia with a zero carbon footprint and recently achieved the world's first independent certification for the production of blue ammonia. The certification was granted by TÜV Rheinland, one of the leading independent testing, inspection and certification agencies. To obtain "blue" certification, a significant portion of the CO associated with the manufacturing process must be captured and used in downstream applications.
Also in the area of food and agriculture, the Edison Awards awarded a bronze award to SABIC's Next Generation Fertilizer, which increases crop yields while reducing the need for large amounts of fertilizer. The exclusive multi-nutrient foliar fertilizer was developed with components that increase crop yields and protect them in a single formula to provide nutrition and protection against stress to plants. SABIC formulation studies have shown up to 17% improvement in yield with up to 25% reduction in fertilizer use.
Finally, in the final "Materials Science" category, the Edison Awards recognized SABIC for its innovative heat-resistant resins that can be used in electric vehicles and state-of-the-art circuit boards. SABIC's NORLY™ resin received the bronze award in the “Best Performance” subgroup. The resin can be used as an insulating film in electric vehicle batteries and charging systems to increase safety. In addition, Gold Award-winning EXTEM™ resin offers manufacturers the ability to mount optical connectors onto printed circuit boards, simplifying assembly processes and enabling mass production of the circuit boards needed for technological products.
The Edison Awards are named for Thomas Alva Edison, whose inventions, methods of product development, and groundbreaking achievements helped change the world. Created in 1987, the Edison Awards are dedicated to recognizing, honoring and encouraging innovations and innovators, and the annual competition honors excellence in new product and service development, marketing, design and innovation.
