Approvals

Recyclability Approvals are managed by the RecyClass Technical Committees, as a result of positive lab results following the Recyclability Evaluation Protocols.

Two types of Recyclability Approvals can be delivered by RecyClass:

 

 

Technology Approval validates the compatibility of a specific technology (e.g. functional barrier, adhesive, etc.) with a determined recycling stream.

 

Product Approval validates the compatibility of a final packaging (commercialized) with a determined recycling stream. Product Approvals are mainly destined for packaging containing features not yet covered by the guidelines (i.e. that require testing). In other cases, the packaging is eligible for a Recyclability Certification.

 

Available technologies and products are tested by independent laboratories. When approval is granted, the Design for Recycling Guidelines can be adapted accordingly to include these new lab findings.

If you would like to obtain approval of your technology or product, please refer to our FAQ section or contact us.

Please find below the list of the released Recyclability Approvals.
