Brussels — EuroPUR and Urethanes Technology International/UTECH-polyurethane.com are pleased to announce that entries are open for the 2019 European Flexible Polyurethane Foam Award.
This is an open contest and entries will be welcomed up to 26 April 2019. The Award will be presented on 12 June at the EuroPUR annual conference in Lisbon, Portugal.
This year’s award will recognise a product or process innovation that has a positive impact on the environmental footprint of flexible polyurethane foam or foam-containing products.
To qualify, products must have reached market stage and processes must be in use. In both cases, concrete results achieved must be demonstrable in the entry form.
Entries can be submitted by raw material suppliers, machinery manufacturers, foam producers, manufacturers of products containing flexible polyurethane foam or recyclers.
The three Shortlisted companies will present their innovations to the participants at the conference on 12 June. Conference participants’ votes will count for 70% of the total in deciding the winner.
The Award winner will receive a full page of free advertising in Urethanes Technology International and will be recognized at our conference in front of representatives of the flexible polyurethane foam industry from all over Europe.
