REHAU‘s TOTAL70 co-extruded profile has been shortlisted for the prestigous National Recycling Awards 2018.
The annual National Recycling Awards identify showcase best practice and innovation in recycling and waste management nationwide.
This year, REHAU entered the popular TOTAL70 co-extruded profile into the Recycled Product of the Year category.
This award recognises innovative recycled products which exemplify the best of sustainability. Products in this category have been designed and manufactured after careful consideration of resources which feature recycled content.
A specialist panel of industry peers will gather for the awards on Thursday, June 28, at the London Hilton.
Other factors considered include reusability and end of life, waste minimisation and closed loop processes.
REHAU’s TOTAL70 co-extruded profile uses recycled material from first generation PVC windows to create brand new high-quality, energy efficient window frames.
The core of the TOTAL70 co-extruded window profile is made up entirely of post-consumer waste and is believed to be the only profile in the market to do this, with only the outer skin made of new polymer for a flawless finish.
This means the entire polymer REHAU uses for the recycled element of the profile comes from old PVC windows and doors, effectively creating a closed loop of material use.
The TOTAL70 co-extruded profile was launched into the market in late 2017 and is already encountering widespread popularity, being embraced by an ever-growing group of customers; a total conversion is planned by mid-2018.
Martin Hitchin, Chief Executive at REHAU said the company was ‘delighted’ at being shortlisted, adding REHAU are always looking to improve its recycling methods and committed to manufacturing products to steer them into a sustainable future.
“Our TOTAL70 co-extruded profile demonstrates this commitment with a very high percentage of recycled material used in the core of the profile, and only a small amount of virgin PVC is used for the skin, making it a very sustainable solution,” he added.
