Solvay: Fifth SolVin Award Competition
This year’s fifth edition of the SolVin Award from Solvay, Brussels, Belgium, honouring innovation, sustainability and creativity in PVC technology, will include two special prize categories for recycling and industrial design.
With award prizes ranging up to EUR 50,000, the contest draws hundreds of candidates demonstrating how products made of polyvinyl chloride are innovative, versatile, cost-effective and safe.
SolVin will host the ceremony at a gala event during the International Plastics Trade Fair K2013 on 22 October in Düsseldorf.
Candidates, who must apply by 30 April, may come from a wide range of fields including material processors, additive suppliers, machine producers, end-users, specifiers, service providers, media-related activities, academic institutions, designers and students.
The five-member independent panel of judges will be looking for highly innovative applications of PVC, how PVC can be recycled, and how to reduce waste.
