JRS Receives the Ernst Pelz Prize

As consumers, we are increasingly conscious of avoiding plastic packaging whenever possible, especially when purchasing cosmetics and detergents. However, we don't want to compromise on quality in the process.

This is precisely the focus of JRS's development: packaging our long-trusted favorite shampoo in paper in the future – either as a solid shampoo bar or as a kind of instant powder.

Until now, this has been challenging as many of the ingredients cannot be produced in solid form. As a result, the composition of existing solid products often differs from their liquid counterparts. With the help of JRS cellulose fibers, nearly all liquid products can now be transformed into solid, waterless forms. These can then be packaged in paper instead of plastic bottles. Additionally, waterless products only weigh a fraction of their original weight, as liquid products can consist of up to 90% water. Thus, the energy required for transportation is minimized.

Cellulose fibers prove to be an ideal carrier for the ingredients in these products: they are natural, biodegradable, and provide a pleasant feel on the skin. The development opens up new possibilities for reducing plastic waste and embracing eco-friendly alternatives without compromising on the quality and performance of our favorite products.

The Ernst Pelz Prize was awarded on July 4th during the 30th C.A.R.M.E.N. Symposium at the Herzogsschloss in Straubing, by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development, and Energy. Antonia Hantschel, Head of Division for Contract Services & Innovation, accepted the award on behalf of JRS, along with Alexander Trautmann, Project Manager in the same division.

The recognition of the development is based on its potential for innovation and the material utilization of cellulose from domestic tree species or fibers from agricultural residues.

Since 1992, the Ernst Pelz Prize has been awarded annually in cooperation with C.A.R.M.E.N. e.V., alongside the Bavarian Prize for Renewable Resources. The awardees must have demonstrated outstanding achievements in favor of environmentally friendly material and/or energetic utilization of domestic renewable resources.
