Supplier award ceremony at the conference "A Circular Future with Plastics" in Lyon

Covestro receives Best Polymer Producers Award for polycarbonate

  • Top rankings for quality, delivery reliability, circularity, communication, innovation and commitment to the European market
  • Competition is organized by the Polymers for Europe Alliance

Covestro now received the Best Polymer Producers Award 2022 for the high-performance plastic polycarbonate. The annual competition on these coveted awards for plastics suppliers is organized by the Polymers for Europe Alliance. Covestro received top ratings from plastics converters across Europe in the categories of quality, delivery reliability, circularity, communication, innovation and commitment to the European market over the past twelve months.

The award was handed over during the conference "A Circular Future with Plastics" of the European Plastics Converters (EuPC) association at a gala dinner at Palais de la Bourse in Lyon. The conference, organized by the EuPC, the French association Polyvia and the plastics producers' association Plastics Europe, was attended by more than 250 industry representatives.

Covestro is very pleased to receive the award and to score well in all categories, including circularity, because a full circular economy is the company's most important goal for the future. To achieve this goal, Covestro has developed a whole portfolio of more sustainable products made with renewable raw materials, including the Makrolon® RE and Bayblend® RE polycarbonate ranges.

"The Best Polymer Producers Awards were created in 2016 to re-establish a constructive dialogue and good communication between suppliers and users of polymers in Europe. The fact that we organised this seventh edition with a growing number of voters every year is a clear indicator of the awards’ success," said Ron Marsh, Chair of the Polymers for Europe Alliance.

The Polymers for Europe Alliance was initiated by the EuPC association in 2015. Each year, Best Polymer Producers Awards for Europe are granted for a number of major polymer types – among them polycarbonates. In addition, an overarching prize on the commitment to the European market, covering all polymer types, has been awarded this year.
