FINAT Recycling & Sustainability Awards
The competition was introduced in 2014 to recognize efforts of the industry in paper and film release liner recycling. In 2018 the competition was renamed into FINAT Recycling & Sustainability Awards. All entries are judged by an independent panel consisting of representatives from INGEDE (the International Association of the Deinking Industry) and EPRO (the European Association of Plastics Recycling and Recovery Organisations).
The 2018 competition is now open to receive registrations and will recognize efforts of the self-adhesive label industry in the area of:
- Recycling of secondary material generated by the self-adhesive industry, such as used release liner
- Reduction of material used for products
- Use of more environmentally friendly feedstocks for materials, such as bio-based or recycled material
- Improved recyclability of the labelled product
Eligible projects or initiatives will be evaluated on the following criteria (in order of importance):
- Potential for the industry
- Involvement of value chain
Entry is free of charge and open to all label converters and labelstock suppliers. Projects started in 2017 qualify for the competition.
All entries must be submitted online by Friday 18th of May, 17.00 CET.
All entries are judged by an independent panel consisting of representatives from FINAT, TLMI, INGEDE (the International Association of the Deinking Industry) and EPRO (the European Association of Plastics Recycling and Recovery Organisations).
