DS Smith Plastics wins Plastics Recycling Award Europe with Beaulex

Published 30 April 2018

Beaulex has secured the Plastics Recycling Award Europe in the category ‘Construction Product Made From Recycled Products’.

DS Smith Plastics hard work and know-how in sustainability and new business development has been recognized

Figures indicate that rain showers, for example, are becoming shorter but more intense. Combined with an increase in construction this highlights the rising importance of rainwater management. Therefore, DS Smith Plastics developed Beaulex, an efficient and sustainable solution to create rainwater buffers under hardened surfaces.

At the first Plastics Recycling Awards Europe, Beaulex won the award in the category 'Construction Product Made from Recycled Products'.

Plastics Recyclers Europe president Ton Emans said: “Beaulex is an excellent example of how a simple idea and a clever design can result in a recycled plastics product that is perfectly applicable.”

The awards are designed to recognise achievement throughout the scope of the European plastics recycling industry. They offer an insight into current developments in recycled material usage, product design and innovative manufacturing.

DS Smith Plastics Injection Moulded Products new business development director Peter Claes said: “The Beaulex Award makes me very proud. It is the fantastic result recognizing the hard work the team has been doing to achieve this and it highlights our commitment to recycling plastics and the environment.”

The Plastics Recycling Awards Europe were presented at the Plastics Recycling Show Europe, which was held April 24-24 in Amsterdam, organized by Crain Communications Inc. and Plastics Recyclers Europe.
