ALTANA Innovation Award 2010

ALTANA Innovation Award for New Effect Pigment Generation Based on Glassflakes

This year sees the third ALTANA Innovation Conference has been held. The highpoint of the international event is the official recognition of the Group’s best innovation for the year with the “ALTANA Innovation Award”. As CTO Dr. Georg F.L. Wiessmeier says of the Award, “Candidacy for the ALTANA Innovation Award is tied to a whole series of key features and other criteria. Hence, only innovations that are already achieving significant market sales are considered. The proposals must be based on an innovative concept, represent an economic benefit for ALTANA and involve advantages for the environment.”

The winning team this year is from the ECKART division:
Dr. Guenter Kaupp, Dr. Dirk Schumacher, Jens Depner, Michael Gruener and Dr. Ulrich Schmidt.
