We're delighted to have won our first accolade of the year at the 2015 Rushlight Awards. MBA Polymers was presented with the Resource Innovation award for our technological innovation in the complex field of plastic polymer separation. The award was presented by Clive Hall and collected by MBA's CEO Nigel Hunton.
"It's a real honour to have received this award for our work on transforming waste plastics into valuable materials," says Nigel. "We have some exciting times ahead, including high tech collaborations with our customers to help them innovate en route to the circular economy. I'd like to thank everyone at MBA for their continued hard work and commitment. We've won this award as a team and everyone has played a part in this success."
The Rushlight Awards are the only awards designed specifically to support and promote the latest clean technologies, innovations and initiatives in the UK and Ireland. Now in its eighth year, the annual awards ceremony recognises the clean tech achievements of diverse organisations and gives entrants the opportunity to pitch to investors and corporate businesses at the Rushlight Show. The overall winner is awarded the Climate – KIC €20,000 prize.
This year, international companies were also invited to enter a new ‘international' category and there was a new prize award for a sustainability initiative that develops the market or engages positively with stakeholders.
This latest accolade for MBA Polymers follows a successful year in 2014, in which we won multiple awards from organisations including Ethical Corporation, Global Plastics Environment Conference and Katerva. We were also named a finalist at the Guardian Sustainable Business Awards.
