Montreal, June 20th, 2017 – Pyrowave is proud to announce that it won the first prize at the 6th edition of the IQ-CHem International Chemistry Innovation Competition organized by SIBUR, one of the largest chemical group in Moscow, Russia. In total, 251 teams from 27 countries took part in the international IQ-CHEM contest with applications from Russia, India, Canada, the Netherlands and the United States. The final presentation took place at the Skolkovo Startup Village 2017 and involved a judging panel comprised of directors and executives from companies such as The Dow Chemical Company, Linde, LG, Honeywell UOP, DuPont, 3M, BASF and Sinopec. “We’re very proud to win this award, of course because it rewards the extensive work we’ve put into the project, but also because of the high technical level of the finalists we competed against”, says Jocelyn Doucet, CEO of Pyrowave. “Participating in and winning this competition gives Pyrowave enormous international exposure to key chemical companies that care about environmental sustainability of chemical operations”. «The winner of the IQ-CHem contest was selected as a result of independent evaluation by each member of the jury, which was comprised of representatives from major global corporations. As a result of their independent assessments, the company Pyrowave was selected as the best» said Dmitry Stepkin, Director of Corporate R&D at SIBUR «The jury assessed that the technological solution offered by Pyrowave – of using microwave radiation to deploymerise plastic, using technology that has already been proven in other areas of usage – is an idea with strong market potential», he added.
