President George W. Bush recently presented the National Medal of Technology to The Dow Chemical Co. in a ceremony at the White House. Michael D. Parker, president and chief executive officer of Dow, accepted the medal on behalf of the company's 50,000 worldwide employees. According to the official citation, Dow was awarded the National Medal of Technology "for the vision to create great science and innovative technology in the chemical industry and the positive impact that commercialization of this technology has had on society." The National Medal cites technical breakthroughs that, when combined with existing capabilities, enabled the development of new, advanced products that offer consumers many benefits. The honored breakthroughs were for advanced materials development such as metallocene catalysts/polyolefins INSITE(TM) technology and the invention of new polymers for use in electronics manufacturing, including SiLK(TM) dielectric resin for use in integrated circuit devices and polymer light emitting diodes for use in displays.
