The methodology provides comprehensive information on the assessment methods used to assess and certify recyclability of a plastic package. The methods described are:
- Design-for-Recycling Certification
- Recyclability Rate Certification
The first one assesses a packaging qualitatively based on the online, self-assessment RecyClass Tool which at the end of the evaluation provides a class ranking from A to F to indicate its recyclability. The latter relies on a quantitative verification of recyclability of a packaging using a specific formula developed by RecyClass in line with the highest European standards. Both methodologies are based on the data compiled under the Design for Recycling Guidelines and the Recyclability Protocols results.
