Shortlisted for recycling award

Rehau and Eurocell have both been shortlisted for the National Recycling Awards 2018, which celebrate best practice and innovation in recycling and waste management across the country.

Rehau entered the Total70 co-extruded profile into the Recycled Product of the Year category which recognises innovative recycled products that exemplify the best of sustainability.

Rehau’s Total70 co-extruded profile uses recycled material from first generation PVC windows to create new high-quality, energy efficient window frames. The core of the Total70 co-extruded window profile is made up entirely of post-consumer waste, with only the outer skin made of new polymer for a flawless finish.

Commenting on Eurocell’s success at being shortlisted, Chris Coxon, head of marketing, said: “We are delighted to make the shortlist in what is probably one of the most competitive and demanding categories in the awards. We felt our entry really highlighted the achievements we have made to date in making recycling central to everything we do. It also captured our determination to continue making progress across the board with significant investment in place to do that”.

Winners of this year’s National Recycling Awards will be announced at an event to be held at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Thursday June 28.
