The second Plastic Technologies Award, the international competition, has been launched by Promaplast in partnership with Poli.design, Consorzio del Politecnico di Milano.

 The 2015 competition focuses on the disposal and recycling of products, components and packaging characterized by rapid obsolescence and a connotation of temporary use, or single-use disposables, such as household utensils, fashion accessories, cosmetics, personal care items, and packaging for rapid consumption products, says Poli.design.

 Winners will share 8,000 euros ($10,800) and the closing date for entries is on Nov. 3, 2014. There are also individual awards for injection molding, blow molding, rotational molding, thermoforming and biopolymers. 

The competition is open to designers and creative professionals both inside and outside Italy, both as individuals or for groups, professionals or non-professionals, corporate employees and students.
