Samsung Wins 2016 Design For Recycling Award

The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries in United States (ISRI) is currently looking for nominations for 2017 Design for Recycling Award.

ISRI’s president, Robin Weiner, claims that the award is designed to reward companies, manufacturers and designers with the mindset of producing such goods that can be easily recycled, providing benefits both for the economy and the environment. To be eligible to nominate, the good must be designed (or redesigned) and manufactured using the maximum amount of recyclable materials. It must be easy to reuse and the recycling should be cost-effective, providing a net gain in each cycle of its use. On opinion of the committee and Robin Weiner, such a concept shall reduce the negative environmental impacts.

Nominations are taken here till the 20th of January. The winner will be awarded at the ISRI 2017 Convention and Exposition on the 21st-27th of April 2017 in New Orleans.

In the past, the award was given to companies such as Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics and Dell

We would like to stress that today tire-derived rubber finds its use in consumer goods and therefore it may be absolutely viable to use it in innovative environment-friendly applications.
