LIFE CEPLAFIB won a National Energy Globe Award 2020 21:07:2020

The Energy Globe Award is one of the most prestigious environmental prizes received by the projects focusing on energy efficiency, renewable energy and resource conservation. Awards are granted on national and international level. Among the national winners for 2020 is LIFE CEPLAFIB project, coordinated by Slovenian research centre TECOS.

National Energy Globe Award Winner transparentFor the development of innovative and sophisticated recycling technologies on transforming the two post-consumer waste streams: plastic and newsprint paper, into new products applicable to packaging, automotive and construction sectors, TECOS received the prestigious National Energy Globe Award for Slovenia. The innovation potential of CEPLAFIB partnership arises from the novel circular economy approach of the recycling value chain that unites two diverse waste flows into new recycled composites that are sustainable and cost competitive. LIFE CEPLAFIB demonstrates how to combine the low value plastic waste with recovered fibres derived from newsprint paper waste with near to zero waste leftovers and how to transform them into high value-added products used in mass application sectors such as the automotive, caravanning, packaging and construction industries.

The project started in July 2018 and will be finished in June 2020. It is implemented by the Slovenian Tool and Die Development Centre – TECOS, in cooperation with the Slovenian company for recycling and processing of plastic granulates - OMAPLAST d.o.o. and ADRIA Mobil from Novo mesto, one of the leading European manufacturers of caravans, motorhomes and mobile homes. In addition to Slovenian participants, three international partners are additionally involved in the project, namely the Finnish waste paper recycling company - ECOPULP, the Polish National Building Research Institute - ITB and the development centre involved in plastic processing technologies - AITIIP from Spain. 

With more than 182 participating countries and over 2000 project submissions annually the Energy Globe Award is today’s most prestigious environmental prize worldwide. It distinguishes projects nationally and globally that conserve resources such as energy or utilize renewable or emission-free sources. By awarding prizes, they want to enhance the global attention to sustainable environmental solutions that can be used everywhere – and motivate people to become active in this field as well.
