Materials Recycler of the Year Award
Eurocell won the Materials Recycler of the Year (Large) category at the National Recycling Awards 2012.
The award was presented by former England Rugby star and Strictly Come Dancing competitor Austin Healy.
Eurocell was judged the winner, in part, because of its £3m investment in enlarging its post-consumer PVCu recycling facility.
The facility is now the largest of its kind in the UK with a capacity to process up to 12,000 end-of-life window frames per week.
Eurocell was also commended for its Eurologik profile system that is made using post-consumer recycled PVCu, as well as customer-specific closed-loop recycling programmes.
Closed-loop recycling involves recycling end-of-life PVCu window frames to make new, energy efficient window products that are delivered back to the same construction sites from which they were removed.
The CCIEM Renewable Technologies Award recognises Eurocell’s ability to recycle over 500,000 end-of-life PVC-U window frames per year and their sustainable manufacturing leadership. Eurocell has created the largest and most advanced PVC-U recycling facility of its kind in the UK.
