Alliance Prize Winner
COtooCLEAN – the innovative multi-participant project by Nextek Limited – has won the Alliance Prize in Circular Solutions for Flexibles.
Following a five-way pitch at the NYSE on 29 November, Professor Edward Kosior, founder of Nextek won the prestigious prize of $US3million to fast-track COtooCLEAN’s ground breaking process to decontaminate post-consumer plastic films back to food-grade quality.
