LS9 Gets Presidential Award
LS9, the South San Francisco-based developer of renewable petroleum, said today it has received the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, the highest honor given by the Environmental Protection Agency. Winners are selected by a panel of experts pulled together by the American Chemical Society. LS9 co-founder and director Noubar Afeyan of Flagship Ventures traveled to Washington to accept the award today. I wrote about LS9 and its strategy in a profile last week.
