Dr. Donald Mackay has made substantial contributions to environment protection. By simplifying the environment to its essential multi-media components, i.e. air, water, soils, sediments and biota, he developed techniques to apply the theoretical concepts of fugacity into comprehensive mass-balance models. With these models, he enabled us to predict the fate of chemicals in the environment. These models are now known as "Mackay Models" and widely used in the academic, business and government organizations worldwide. We evaluate highly his such activities and achievements were great contributions to the diffusion of the "eco-technology" concept that Honda Foundation has been advocating ever since its establishment and hereby we present the HONDA PRIZE.
