Laurance Bird, Founder and Director of Carpet Recycling UK will be retiring from his day to day involvement with CRUK at the end of this year. After ten years of support from across the carpet industry Laurance would like to say thank you to all our members, especially the core funders who have played a key role in its success.
Laurance will continue as a non-executive director of CRUK and will be assisting Axion with ISOPREP, a new Horizon2020-funded R&D project to extract pure reusable polypropylene polymer from carpets and other composite materials.
Chairman Andy Hall comments: ‘It is without doubt that the success of CRUK over the last 10 years has in a significant and important way been down to Laurance with his vision, determination, networking and dedication to the challenge of the UK carpet landfill issue. We cannot thank him enough and are delighted that he will still be playing a role over the next phase of the organisation’s development.’
