PCC Processing Technologies wins World Global Energy Award

01
Apr '08
In recognition of creating equipment that enables companies to recycle used carpets, save oil and help clear landfills, Post Consumer Carpet Processing Technologies(PCC) has been named the United States winner and one of three winners in the Earth category of the World Energy Globe Award.

The new technology was developed by PCC co-owners Frank J. Levy, President of Stellamcor Inc. in Quogue, NY and Sergio Dell'Orco President of Dell'Orco & Villani (D&V), in Capalle, Italy.

Five billion pounds of non-biodegradable used carpet are dumped into landfills in the U.S. every year. Placed in one spot, the solid waste would need a hole one mile by one mile by 100 feet deep.

"If incinerated," says Levy, "the carpets will release toxic chemicals. If accumulated, they never will disintegrate, posing terrible problems for future generations."

"Our equipment takes apart petrol chemical components that make up the carpet," says Sergio Dell'Orco. "By reusing the components, business people can be both profitable and socially responsible.We hope the recognition from this award will stimulate companies and governments to help clean up the Earth's landfills."

Stellamcor Inc. teamed up with Dell'Orco 30 years ago, providing engineering and sales services in the textile recycling industry. Stellamcor and D&V are family businesses.

PCC has licensed its technology to Interface Inc., the world's third-largest carpet manufacturer. Interface and PCC are a natural fit because Interface's goal is to remove any negative impact it has on the environment by the year 2020.
