BETHESDA, MD - With a lineup featuring Jay Leno and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, the Coalition for Clean Air (CCA) presented the 2012 California Air Quality Awards at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, CA, on Thursday, June 21, 2012. RadTech - The Association for UV and EB Technologies is a new sponsor of the event, in recognition of the important work of CCA. 

"We applaud CCA for its efforts to position California as a global leader in improving air quality," said Howard Ragin, RadTech President, DSM Coating Resins. "We recognize the leadership role that California plays not just in the U.S., but worldwide, and we commend CCA for its deep commitment to advanced technologies such as UV and EB as a way to not only clean the air, but also maintain a vital, local manufacturing presence."

"UV/EB printing and coating has done a fantastic job of reducing air pollution emissions," said Dr. Joseph Lyou, CCA President and CEO. "UV/EB technologies are revolutionizing their industry and improving our air quality at the same time. The great news is that we have significant additional opportunities to further reduce air pollution from the printing and coating industry using UV/EB technologies." 

With offices in Sacramento, Los Angeles and Fresno, the nonprofit Coalition for Clean Air has worked to restore clean air to California since 1971. CCA is dedicated to reducing emissions and improving public health through advocacy, outreach and education.
