PVC awards offer €100k in prize money

Article-PVC awards offer €100k in prize money

Few competitions in the plastics industry are as well financed as the The SolVin Award for PVC Innovation. The triennial competition, in its fourth edition, culminates as per tradition in a gala awards program during the week of the K show in Düsseldorf, Germany (Oct. 27-Nov. 3, 2010). SolVin, a 75:25 joint venture of Solvay and BASF, is one of the world’s largest suppliers of polyvinyl chloride and the largest intergated PVC supplier in Europe.

The competition is open to processors, compounds, designers, OEMs, students—really anyone with a nifty application or idea involving PVC. An independent jury of five, including an editor from MPW, picks the winners. In the main "industry" category, three prizes are awarded along with cash awards of €50,000, €25,000 and €10,000. There also are special prizes, each carrying a €7500 award, for recycling and for industrial design.

Application forms should be completed in English and sent back between January 1, 2010 and April 30, 2010. More information, including the contest rules and an application form, is available at[email protected]
