Enval recognised at national level

last modified Dec 11, 2017 01:18 PM

Department spin off company Enval has won the SME National Business Award 2017 in the Green Category for its work in developing and commercialising technologies to prevent materials and resources ending up in landfill. The judges, including representatives of Clydesdale Bank and Lloyds Banking Group were impressed that, thanks to Enval's technology, previously unrecyclable pouches, tubes and sachets made from plastic aluminium laminates, are now recyclable.

"The Enval Team is thrilled to have its hard work recognised with this award," commented Dr. Carlos Ludlow-Palafox, Enval's CEO. "We are delighted with this endorsement of the green benefits of our technology and the instrumental role that SMEs like Enval play in driving innovation across the environmental sector."

The SME awards aim to recognise the importance of small and medium enterprises to the economy. The Green Award in particular, aims to recognise businesses committed to reducing or removing the harmful impact that products and/or services have on the environment.

Enval received the award from TV presenter Jules Breach at a recent event, held at Wembley Stadium. The evening was a great success, with over 400 people attending to celebrate and reward the impressive work done by many diverse SMEs from up and down the Country.
