Epro: Winners of Best Recycled Plastic Product 2012
Epro –- European Association of Plastics Recycling and Recovery Organisations (Epro), Wemmel, Brussel, invited the plastics industry from across Europe to nominate examples of products made from recycled plastics for the Best Recycled Plastic Product Competition 2012.
The two winners are:
• Category BtoB: Filatura di Saluzzo with Newlife (recycled polyester filament yarn) – Italy.
• Category BtoC : Curver with Ecolife Neo (Baskets made of recycled PP) – Europe.
The key objective of the competition, which is now in its 4th year, is to raise awareness of the value and versatility of used plastics packaging. Whether it be post-consumer or post-industrial plastic, the opportunity to recycle this valuable resource into new products and applications must be recognised, encouraged and promoted.
The competition attracts a wide range of entries representing both consumer facing products and business to business applications. This year the entries were judged by a broad European panel of experts, including representatives from Epro, Plastics Europe and ACR+. The winners were announced and the awards presented on the 6th of November at IdentiPlast 2012, in Warsaw.
Based on the continued success of the initiative, Epro will be running the best recycled plastic product competition again next year with the winners announced at Identiplast Paris in October 2013.
