Roquette: Eco-Design Award
The Roquette Group, Lestrem, France, a global player in the processing of plant-based raw materials, was distinguished with an “Eco-Design” award for its Gaïalene plant-based plastic range at the Annual Sustainable Development and Enterprise Days (JADDE) held in Lille, France, early October.
Alongside Roquette, the company Elise which specializes in paper recycling was also acknowledged with an Eco-Design award for their office basket designed by Philippe Starck and manufactured from Gaïalene plant-based plastics.
This award recognizes Roquette for having adopted an innovative approach for the design of Gaïalene. The range that it offers today for plastics industry has reduced impact on the environment thanks to the careful choices made for the growing of plants, the production process, the location of the production facility and the predisposition of the material to be fully recycled at the end of its life-cycle.
