Battelle & Affiliated National Labs Win Awards
July 29, 2009

Battelle and the national laboratories it manages or co-manages for the U.S. Department of Energy have won 24 of the prestigious 2009 R&D 100 Awards, four more than it won in 2008. Winning 24 percent of all the awards is the largest amount in the last five years and brings the total number of wins for Battelle and its affiliate labs to 215, tallied during the time Battelle has managed or co-managed those labs.

R&D Magazine has been presenting the R&D 100 Awards since 1969. The R&D 100 awards are given annually to honor the year’s most significant scientific and technological innovations. This year, Battelle won its award for its array of bio-based materials, meaning products derived from soy that can eventually replace oil-based plastics, deicers, and other materials.

Six of the national laboratories affiliated with Battelle won 23 awards. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory won eight awards, Oak Ridge National Laboratory won six, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Idaho National Laboratory won three each, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory won two, and Brookhaven National Laboratory won one.
