DS Smith Plastics wins a Plastics Recycling Award Europe with Beaulex®, an Innovative and Sustainable Rainwater Infiltration System’

DS Smith Plastics hard work and know-how in sustainability and new business development has been recognized. Beaulex ® has won the Plastics Recycling Award Europe in the category ‘Construction Product Made From Recycled Products’.

Figures indicate that rain showers, for example, are becoming shorter but more intense. Combined with an increase in construction this highlights the rising importance of rainwater management. Therefore, DS Smith Plastics developed Beaulex, an efficient and sustainable solution to create rainwater buffers under hardened surfaces.

At the first Plastics Recycling Awards Europe, Beaulex won the award in the category 'Construction Product Made from Recycled Products'.

Beaulex is an excellent example of how a simple idea and a clever design can result in a recycled plastics product that is perfectly applicable. — Ton Emans, President of Plastics Recyclers Europe

The awards are designed to recognise achievement throughout the scope of the European plastics recycling industry. They offer an insight into current developments in recycled material usage, product design and innovative manufacturing.

The Beaulex Award makes me very proud. It is the fantastic result recognizing the hard work the team has been doing to achieve this and it highlights our commitment to recycling plastics and the environment. — Peter Claes, New Business Development Director of DS Smith Plastics Injection Moulded Products
