REDWAVE Wins the Environmental Prize of the Nationwide Energy Globe Austria Award 2020 - Video
After REDWAVE won the Styrian Energy Award at the beginning of October in the Rittersaal of the Grazer Landeshaus, the innovative company from Styria also succeeded in winning the nationwide environmental award. The best environmental project in Austria was sought at the Energy Globe Austria, the Austrian environmental event. This coveted award focuses on innovative and sustainable projects that offer solutions to protect and preserve the environment and to combat current environmental problems. Around 300 environmental projects from all over Austria participated in the preliminary rounds in the states. The quality and variety of the submissions are incredible. This is a positive signal for the future, for the population, and for the economy. Especially in Covid-19 impacted times. The Energy Globe Austria was awarded in seven categories on Wednesday, October 28th, at 5.30pm, in a live streaming event (www.energyglobe.at) under the patronage of Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen. The Styrian company REDWAVE won the desired award in the Sustainable Plastics category with the project: “Process optimization of recycling plants to increase the efficiency of material resources”. The company, which supplies innovative and economical solutions in the recycling and waste treatment industry, developed an intelligent Industry 4.0 software solution that monitors, controls, and optimizes the entire sorting process in a recycling plant. As a result, the entire plant can be used to extract for example pure, recyclable plastics and can operate much more efficiently and cost-effectively. Therefore, ongoing optimization steps guarantee the highest possible quality of the recycled materials. The service life of the entire plant and of the individual machines is extended due to the constant utilization. In addition to its use in the plastics recycling process, the new type of plant control and monitoring system from REDWAVE is also used in paper, glass, and metal recycling worldwide. With this digitalisation project, which is called 'REDWAVE mate', a solution has been created that boosts the circular economy and increases resource efficiency.
