Finalists chosen for 2013 Recycling Innovators Forum

Out of almost 50 proposals submitted, 10 finalists have been selected to compete in the 2013 Recycling Innovators Forum.

The Recycling Innovators Forum seeks to recognize and reward original and actionable innovations that have the potential to transform the recycling industry. Though only in its first year, the Forum has long-term goals of fostering invention, originality and measurable improvement in recycling customer experiences, processes, technology and markets. The 10 finalists offer promising and innovative ideas covering a broad range of topics including plastics sortation and processing, new opportunities for recycled glass, multi-family recycling, social-local-mobile technology and more.

Finalists will present will their ideas to a panel of judges and an audience of recycling professionals, venture capitalists and clean-tech investors on August 26 at the Louisville Convention Center in Louisville, Kentucky. The judges, recognized leaders in recycling and market development, will choose three top finalists who will receive honorariums of $20,000 (first place), $5,000 (second place) and $2,000 (third place). Anyone can attend the Recycling Innovators Forum to learn more about these ten innovations.

The Forum is generously sponsored by Alcoa, the American Chemistry Council's Plastics Division, Coca-Cola Recycling, eCullet and Waste Management. For more information, please contact info@recyclinginnovators.com.
