PEGA D&E is Awarded 2010 iF Material Award for the Innovative Eco-friendly Material

PEGA D&E has been awarded the iF Material Award 2010 for the alloy of PLA (Polylactic acid) and medical recycled PC (Polycarbonate).

This is an innovative eco-friendly material, and has been successfully applied in large pieces of consumer electronics by PEGA D&E.

The drawbacks of PLA, such as fragile and too sticky, have been overcome; meanwhile, autoclave and physical method is used to reuse the PC from medical plastic wastes, reducing raw material consumption and energy depletion during the manufacturing process of new materials.

"The main concern is the preservation of the environment in the different production stages, from the use of green material, production process, and the wastes management," said Debbie Huang, the Design Director of PEGA D&E.
