Sustainable Solutions Impacting our Future

The world is rapidly changing, and with it, the challenges we face. The chemical industry is at the forefront of many solutions, from renewable energy to waste reduction. For this year's challenge, we're seeking innovative research that addresses a current environmental or sustainability challenge using chemical analysis.

Whether it's developing a new method to detect microplastics in our oceans, optimizing processes for renewable energy storage, or devising a novel way to recycle complex materials, we want to hear about it! Show us how your research can make a real-world difference and push the boundaries of what's possible in chemical analysis for a sustainable future.


Here's what you should know:

  • You must be a student (undergrad, grad, post-grad, doc) in the United States or Canada

  • Your research must relate to the challenge brief

  • You must submit your abstract by January 10th, 2025

  • While not a requirement, work that applies methods of titration, ion chromatography, electrochemistry or spectroscopy will be favored in the award selection process
