Winners of the motan Innovation Award “mia” Will Be Presented at K 2016
In December 2015 the motan Group, Constance, Germany, has launched the innovation award “mia” for the first time. The company is sponsoring the award with a prize of 20,000 Euros. The award will go to innovative and game-changing new ideas for plastics production and processing.
Businesses, universities, and employees of the motan group submitted their applications for the motan foundation’s innovation award with a large spectrum of innovative solutions for Materials Handling. “Despite it being the first call and the comparatively short application deadline, we received an unexpectedly large number of applications”, explains Sandra Füllsack, Managing Director of motan. Along with submissions for specific solutions in material supply, there were innovations for adjacent areas of the process chains in the plastics industry.
Among the applicants were application specialists from plastic processors, employees of the motan group from all over the world, and applicants from universities and institutions. Independent industry and science experts nominated five potential winners after a detailed examination and assessment process. Aspects such as additional benefit for the processor increase in efficiency for processing, and effects of the proposed solutions on the environment were just some of the criteria.
At the beginning of July 2016, these five innovations will be personally presented to the jury at motan-colortronic in Friedrichsdorf, Germany. The jury will decide on three finalists for the award. The prizes worth a total of over EUR 20,000 will be presented during a special award ceremony during the plastics exhibition K 2016 in Düsseldorf.
