At this year’s Fespa, the EDP Award was presented to 3A Composites for the second time. This time, the bio plastic board SMART-X®natura received an award in the category “Best environmental substrate“. The European Digital Press Association (EDP) comprises 20 member magazines all over Europe, covering 25 countries and reaching more than half a million readers.
Every year, the EDP Technical Committee judges products on the value of their new technical features. These can be technological innovations that improve speed, quality, usability and functionality or that reduce the environmental impact as well as costs to the user.
SMART-X®natura is produced from the raw material polylactic acid (PLA), derived entirely from renewable resources. The product is the first of its kind amongst printing substrates. Since the carbon footprint is about 60% lower than for traditional display materials, 3A Composites is able to offer consumers a more responsible choice when it comes to the selection of the ideal display panel.
