The Plastics Recycling Ambassador for the year is Flor Peà±a Herron. A sustainability and circular economy manager at Avery Dennison, Herron holds a Masters degree in Sciences Biology with a major in Ecology and Microbiology, and is responsible for strengthening sustainability awareness via internal and external training at the firm. At the event, judges praised Herron for her commitment to work on improving plastic packaging recyclability and recycling in Europe. She also leverages multiple inaktives and platforms like Petcore Europe (Brussels; www.petcore-europe.org) and RecyClass (www.recyclass.eu), in an effort to make plastics truly circular.
The winners each receive a trophy, with a 3D-printed base made from 100% recycled ABS plastic car dashboards and a laser-cut top made from compressed HDPE beach clean-up bottle caps. PRSE 2022 is expected to take place on 22-23 June next year at the same venue.
Ton Emans, PRE president, said, â??Now in their fourth year, the awards as a whole show how well all plastic value chain actors are collaborating to improve recycling: everyone from major brands and material producers through to converters, label producers and manufacturers of shredding and extrusion machinery.â?18.11.2021 Plasteurope.com [248994-0]
