WASHINGTON (Dec. 13)—The American Chemical Society honored James R. Hall of Baton Rouge, La., with a 2000 Industrial Innovation Award for his contributions to the science and technology of synthetic rubber-making. Among his accomplishments, Hall is credited with remedying poor bale stability in EPDM by modifying the material´s molecular structure. The measure improved "cold flow" and leaking while in storage and transport. Hall began his career in 1959 with Copolymer Rubber & Chemical Co., now DSM Elastomers Americas.
