“The Plastics Recycling Awards Europe winners have each successfully demonstrated how passion, innovation, ingenuity and determination can achieve practical, commercial and successful advances in plastics recycling,” Ton Emans, awards judge and president of Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE), stated in a press release. “The very high standard and number of entries we received for each category is testament to the growing range of consumer and industrial applications in which recycled plastics and recycling technology are being used. They are making a huge contribution towards conserving resources, reducing CO2 and sustaining the circular economy.”

The winners received trophies made of 3D-printed recycled ABS from car dashboards and compressed HDPE from bottle caps collected on beaches. The Plastics Recycling Show Europe is organised by Crain Communications and Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE).
