PPG Honored With Sustainability Leadership Award

The American Chemistry Council 2024 Sustainability Leadership Award recognizes exemplary products, technologies and initiatives that help advance sustainability.

PPG announced it has received an American Chemistry Council (ACC) 2024 Sustainability Leadership Award, which recognizes exemplary products, technologies and initiatives that help advance sustainability.

PPG received the award in the Product Safety, Innovation and Transparency category for its PPG ENVIROPRIME® EPIC 300 electrocoat, which it said cures at lower temperatures than previous ecoat technologies, helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions from coatings application in the automotive original equipment manufacturing (OEM) process.

“PPG remains focused on providing our automotive customers with sustainable technologies to assist in meeting their long-term goals,” said Garry Grant, PPG global product manager, substrate protection products, Automotive Coatings. “After 60 years in electrocoat technology leadership, our teams continue to innovate sustainably advantaged solutions, such as Enviroprime EPIC 300, which improve environmental impacts.”

Historically, the paint shop is the most energy-intensive area of automotive OEM facilities. PPG said its Enviroprime EPIC 300 coating can be applied to heavy electric vehicle assemblies using less energy and heat, reducing energy input by 11-13 percent and lowering greenhouse gas emissions, ultimately contributing to the OEM’s decarbonization efforts and enabling the production of battery electric vehicles without significant investment in process or asset changes.

“Sustainability and innovation are intrinsically linked,” said Peter Votruba-Drzal, PPG vice president-elect, global sustainability. “PPG Enviroprime EPIC 300 coating is a testament to our commitment to solving customer needs and aligning our products and processes with their sustainability ambitions.”
