This Award is for the successful application of an innovative solution in the area of process and production methods.
A new production solution may involve the application of entirely new processes or techniques, or the innovative application of existing ones. In either case, the solution adopted should make a positive contribution to the environmental aspect of sustainability while benefiting economic and social aspects. Technology may be expected to increase resource efficiency and reduce life-cycle environmental impacts by using materials and energy in a more efficient way, such as increased use of renewable resources or minimising the use of hazardous substances, thereby reducing emissions and waste.
