FCC Medio Ambiente awarded at the XXVIII Andalusia Environment Awards

FCC Medio Ambiente won the 28th edition of the Andalusia Environment Awards (PAMA 2024 for its acronym in Spanish) given by the Andalusian Regional Government. The award ceremony took place yesterday evening, 5th June, on the occasion of World Environment Day, at the Carmen de los Mártires in Granada. Jordi Payet, CEO of FCC Medio Ambiente Iberia, accepted the award on behalf of the company from María López Sanchís, secretary-general for Environment, Climate Change and Blue Economy of the Andalusian Government.

The PAMAs are intended to recognise the environmental work of natural or legal persons, public or private, who have made a remarkable contribution to the conservation, protection and dissemination of environmental values in the region of Andalusia. In this edition, a total of 66 entries were submitted, out of which the Andalusian Regional Government has awarded ten projects in eight different categories.

FCC Medio Ambiente has won in the Circular Economy category for the LIFE4FILM project, led by the company and in collaboration with the Granada Provincial Council, co-financed by the European Union's LIFE programme and developed at the Ecocentral environmental compound in Granada. The project has managed to implement a technically and economically viable solution for the recovery of polyethylene film plastic, its treatment and manufacture of a 100%-recycled quality product that is then reintroduced into the market, thus closing the circle of use, discard, recycle, reuse.

The LIFE4FILM project also involves the participation of prestigious academic institutions, such as the University of Granada, and leading companies in the sector: Stadler, Lindner, Erema, the Technological Institute of Plastics AIMPLAS and Ibañez.

During 2023, the work was completed, concluding the project with the challenge achieved, proof of which are the ECOSAC bags obtained from the recovered plastic film which are already in distribution.

For FCC Medio Ambiente, this award is an important recognition of the R&D&I work it carries out, especially in this project that seeks to promote the circular economy through the reuse of plastic film and thus reduce the flow of this material to landfills.
