Professor Greg Lowry received the Carnegie Science Center's Honorable Mention for the 2012 Environmental Award. Lowry has developed nanotechnology-based solutions for improving environmental quality by helping others understand the risks associated with nanomaterials in consumer products, which pose threats to the environment and human health. Also, he is developing novel nanoparticles for environmental remediation.

This award recognizes outstanding achievements in the fields of environmental protection and restoration that benefit the economy, health, and quality of life in western Pennsylvania. The awards will be presented at a ceremony in May at the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh.
