New Certification Bodies join the Recycled Plastics Traceability Certification  The certification is geared at determining the actual shares of recycled content in plastic. To allow for the maximum transparency the Certifications are issued by independent third-party auditors who ensure reliable assessments and impartiality. Since its official launch in July last year the number of recognized auditors has more than doubled, representing today twenty-five auditors from twenty-one certification bodies from across Europe.  “This interest is a clear signal”,
The findings of an independent laboratory testing of ‘PERFORMANCE PA SC15’ technology show that has limited compatibility with polyethylene (PE) flexibles recycling stream. The analysis was carried out according to the RecyClass Recyclability Evaluation Protocol for PE films and performed by the AIMPLAS technology centre. It is crucial to specify that this approval, is limited
PRESS DECLARATION In a reference to the report[1], published on February 18, 2021, by Impact Solutions – a laboratory commissioned by Polymateria to carry out a recyclability test of a polyethylene film with biodegradable additive technology called PLM-G, RecyClass would like to make the following declaration: As the laboratory testing was done according to the
The findings of an independent laboratory testing of ‘PBL 240-3-7’[1] and ‘PBL 300/2-7 F’[2] laminated tubes technologies developed by Huhtamaki Flexible Packaging Europe and its partner ZALESI, show that they are, respectively, fully compatible, and compatible with recycling in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) containers stream. The analysis was carried out by the Institut für Kunststofftechnologie und
The laminated tube technology ‘PBL 220/11 HD’[1] developed by Huhtamaki Flexible Packaging Europe and its partner Plastuni Lisses, member of Somater Group, show that it is fully compatible with recycling in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) containers stream, the findings of an independent laboratory testing confirm. The analysis was carried out by the Institut für Kunststofftechnologie und -recycling
Launch of a public consultation RecyClass launches a public consultation on its draft guidance on the use of claims pertaining to plastic recyclability and recycled content.[1] In light of the increasing imparities in the various claims across the industry, this document aims at creating a level-playing field and at promoting a common understanding of the
RecyClass publishes Annual Report 2020[1] The core objective of RecyClass is to drive plastic packaging circularity by advancing design for recycling and working towards a common approach to be endorsed at the EU level. With RecyClass membership doubling in 2020, the industry’s interest in making packaging fully recyclable is the top priority. RecyClass is steered
RecyClass publishes new Recyclability Evaluation Protocol Recyclability Evaluation Protocol for PP films[1] is destined for companies who want to verify whether their polypropylene flexible packaging is compatible with the state of the art post-consumer recycling. “With an 18% share of the total films placed on the EU market, PP flexibles have a great potential to
The laminating adhesive ‘Bostik SF10M’ by Bostik can be recycled in a polyethylene (PE) film recycling stream, according to an analysis done by an independent laboratory. This innovative technology made of a solvent-free aromatic polyurethane-based adhesive is used to produce multilayer LDPE films. Following the analysis carried out by Proplast and as per the RecyClass
The findings of an independent laboratory testing of ‘M-ResinsTM’ technology show that it is suitable for recycling in a polyethylene (PE) film stream. The analysis was carried out by Proplast, as per the RecyClass Recyclability Evaluation Protocol for PE films. The technology is a multilayer resealable film lidding which is generally used in combination with
