Terrafend Shortlisted for BCF 2023 Sustainable Innovation SME Award


Terrafend Shortlisted for Sustainable Innovation

The British Coatings Federation (BCF) recently announced the shortlisted entries for the 2023 Awards. Following a series of judging days conducted by an independent panel of judges in each category, they reached a carefully selected shortlist from a wide variety of high-quality entries. We are extremely proud to have made the shortlist as these awards celebrate the achievements of successful and innovative businesses within our region.

Sustainability is an all-encompassing term covering environmental, economic, and social aspects of responsibility, with broad objectives of economic growth and increased employment prospects, enhanced social conditions and an improved living environment – all achieved while minimizing the use of harmful materials and without depleting valuable resources. It is hoped that this award will make a significant impact on the Coatings industry and the way in which the industry is seen by others. The judges will also take into consideration the impact of the innovation on economic and social aspects of sustainability, whether qualitative or quantitative in nature. 

Today, more than ever, the world needs leadership in environmental sustainability. At Terrafend, sustainability is at the heart of our vision to unlock the extraordinary potential of a circular economy with sustainable solutions that manufacturers – and the planet– can rely on.

With Ambimization®, coatings manufacturers can reduce their waste outputs by up to 93.3%, decrease VOCs by up to 99.6%, and eliminate solvents entirely. In addition, Ambimization® enables manufacturers to meaningfully reduce energy requirements in their cleaning operations. The technology’s ability to work to a high standard, at ambient temperature, drawing only the minimal energy required to agitate any product or contamination, enables businesses to reduce demands on the electricity grid.

Ambimization® enables assets to be reused (e.g. resin applicators, paint vats) rather than disposed to landfill, while machines can be reused the first place. Ambimization® helps businesses enjoy the benefits of enhancing safety, minimizing waste and keeping assets in use for longer.

Winners will be announced at an Awards dinner on Thursday 19th October at The Grand Hotel in Birmingham. Information on the Award categories and how to book can be found here.
