PureCycle was recognized for its use of post-consumer and post-industrial polypropylene in consumer-facing applications. The proprietary technique produces near virgin-quality resins from recycled feedstock by removing contaminants, odors and colors. The AccredoFlex RP Gen2 pouch- an all-polyethylene, fully recyclable stand-up pouch manufactured using wind and solar energy won the People’s Choice Award.

Although the Association was forced to move the awards to virtual voting due to special circumstances on account of the Covid-19 pandemic, it saw very high participation from previous attendees of the conference and plastics industry experts. The awards demonstrate and recognize sustainability and recycling innovations within the plastics industry, said Ashley Hood-Morley, Senior Director of Sustainability and Materials, PLASTICS.
