These prestigious awards are intended to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the European plastics recycling industry. They provide an insight into current developments in the use of recycled materials, product design and innovative manufacturing. The Plastics Recycling Awards Europe 2020 received a record number of entries this year. The influx of projects, mainly in the Product Technology category, from across the entire value chain including brand owners, raw material producers and machine and equipment manufacturers testifies to a genuine commitment by all actors to making plastics circular, said Ton Emans, PRE President.
GreenMatter received the award in the category ‘Building & Construction Product of the Year’. For us it was already an enormous honour to be named among the great innovators within the recycling industry, but actually winning the award was a welcome surprise! A nice compliment to the entire GreenMatter team and also an important recognition from our colleague plastic recyclers that we are on the right track and have brought a beautiful concept to the market.
This award reinforces our mission to reduce the growing artificial grass waste mountain. Enough challenges ahead!
