This year’s fifth edition of the SolVin Award, honouring innovation, sustainability and creativity in PVC technology, will include two special prize categories for recycling and industrial design.With award prizes ranging up to 50,000 euros, the highly competitive contest draws hundreds of candidates demonstrating how products made of polyvinyl chloride are innovative, versatile, cost-effective and safe.

“It’s also a way to show how PVC is an excellent performer in life-cycle assessments of materials, thus the special award for recycling,” said Richard Thommeret, SolVin marketing manager. SolVin will host the ceremony at a gala event during the International Plastics Trade Fair K2013 on 22 October in Düsseldorf. Candidates, who must apply by 30 April, may come from a wide range of fields including material processors, additive suppliers, machine producers, end-users, specifiers, service providers, media-related activities, academic institutions, designers and students.

The five-member independent panel of judges will be looking for highly innovative applications of PVC, how PVC can be recycled, and how to reduce waste. At the last competition in 2010, Georg Fischer Deka won the Gold Solvin Award with photo bioreactors based on 100% PVC to grow micro algae for food and green fuels. Silver went to Rohm&Haas for their foamed PVC. Alkor Draka took bronze for their fire-resistant stretch PVC ceilings. Profine won the recycling award for windows and doors with 50% recycled materials. The design award went to Molusk aquatic jewelry.
