Robert Sonnenschein, managing director of REMONDIS Industrie Service, and Fabian Möllers, head of the RESPRAY division, left the presentation of this year’s GreenTec Awards feeling very proud of their achievements. They and their innovative aerosol can recycling process had begun as one of 100 competitors and had made it to the final for the ‘Resources and Recycling’ category.
The 10th presentation ceremony for the GreenTec Awards, Europe’s most prestigious environmental prize, was held in Berlin this year on 12 May. Once again, only the best of the best had been invited for each category – according to the jury this most certainly also included inviting Robert Sonnenschein and Fabian Möllers to represent REMONDIS’ aerosol can recycling system. Their system, RESPRAY, had been officially named one of the four projects in the ‘Resources and Recycling’category still to be in the running for the wooden trophy.

“It was a really exciting evening that focused on the environment in every possible way. The red carpet was green, the award was made of wood and even the food was fair trade and clean,” commented Robert Sonnenschein. Met by a sea of cameras, he and Fabian Möllers entered the building via the green carpet alongside celebrities such as Nena and rapper Samy Deluxe. He was to be presented with a GreenTec Award for his song lyrics that have been helping to make sustainable development a popular subject. The event itself was highly entertaining with Annemarie Carpendale and Matthias Killing hosting the evening, music played by the band Frida Gold and a whole number of interesting speeches introducing the winners. All in all, it highlighted just how modern, topical and indeed acute the whole subject of environmental protection has become.

Each award was preceded by short films to let the audience know what the projects were about – with the film about RESPRAY receiving much applause. The satisfied look on the faces of all those involved lasted well into the night. “RESPRAY began as a very small project six years ago. It is a really proud moment to see it up there on the big screen,” Fabian Möllers explained to the other participants. He could never have imagined back then that they would be invited to take part in the final of Europe’s most prestigious sustainability award. They also received a lot of praise from individual jury members after the awards ceremony. “RESPRAY would appear to have left a lasting impression on many of the people here. That is what has made this evening such a success for us,” said Robert Sonnenschein.
