FLORENCE, KY (June 19, 2012) - Emerson Industrial Automation, a business of Emerson, today announced that its System Plast™ Global Sustainable Solutions video has been selected as the recipient of a Central Ohio Chapter Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) PRism Award. Recognized for the “other applications of new technology” category and created by Fahlgren Mortine, the animated video was developed to educate audiences about the System Plast product line at PACK EXPO 2011 in Las Vegas.
The video addresses the major concern of water conservation for beverage manufacturers as government agencies continue to enforce new regulations. It provides stats on manufacturing water usage, including the fact that typical beverage companies use four to seven gallons of water in the supply chain to produce a single gallon of their product. The video also explains how Emerson's System Plast product line can offer a solution that reduces traditional soap and water lubrication while also reducing water usage in the production process.
For more than 25 years, the System Plast brand has been a leader in the development and production of conveyor components for a wide range of applications. In 2011, Emerson Industrial Automation launched its System Plast New Generation™ chains and belts for the U.S food and beverage industry. In addition to water conservation, System Plast products also address common application issues, such as efficiency, noise reduction and hygiene.
Designed to honor exceptional public relations activities from a diverse mix of businesses, industries and backgrounds, the Central Ohio PRSA PRism awards honor local professionals and organizations every year.
