With the growing amount of plastic waste, there is an urgent need to change the way we produce, use and dispose of plastic to increase the value at the end of its life.

Applying reliable, transparent design-for-recycling principles, assessing recycling compatibilities of novel technologies and boosting the uptake of the recycled material in a wide range of new articles, including high-end products, are a must to ensure a circular plastic future.

That is where RecyClass comes into play. It is a comprehensive cross-industry initiative that advances plastic packaging recyclability and ensures traceability and transparency of recycled plastic content in Europe.

What does
RecyClass do?

RecyClass works on the development of scientific testing methods for innovative materials. The testing results are incorporated into the Design for Recycling Guidelines and the free RecyClass Online Tool.

In parallel, RecyClass developed a system for reliable calculation and verification of recycled content in plastic products. The scheme relies on the principles of traceability and transparency.


For companies who commit to the next steps of the circular plastic journey, RecyClass offers Recyclability Certifications and Recycled Plastic Traceability Certification.
