Plastic Technologies Award 2015
The winners of the second edition of the Plastic Technologies Award, the international competition launched by Promaplast, the organizer of Plast 2015 in collaboration with POLI.design, a consortium of the Milan Polytechnic, will be announced during Plast 2015.
The 2015 Plastic Technologies Award focuses on the disposal and recycling of products, components and packaging characterized by rapid obsolescence, temporary use or disposability, such as household utensils and the packaging of quick-consumption products. The names of the projects making it into the finals were released several days ago:
- Eat&Play – Ice cream pack
- Palingenesi – Recyclable container
- ASAP: As Sustainable As Possible – Compostable cup
- Yin&Gnam – Disposable flatware
- Bione Pack – Sugar packet and spoon
“The new challenge posed by the Plastic Technologies Award 2015 to designers from all over the world,” stated Mario Maggiani, Managing Director of Promaplast, organizer of Plast 2015, “is that of conceiving projects that lower disposal impact, exploiting the potentials of production and materials technologies, introducing smart features into the product itself that meet with the needs of prospective consumers. Thus projects that can redevelop the entire sector of products subject to rapid obsolescence or temporary use in a more sustainable way.”
The projects are judged by a jury of experts and the winners will share the overall prize money of EUR 8,000. The prize ceremony will take place on 5 May during the Plast 2015 inauguration.
