Calculation of recycled plastic content
RecyClass focuses on the physical traceability of recycled plastics, reporting a known and verifiable percentage of recycled plastics in outputs. The calculation must be done at different stages of the value chain, as it can change throughout recycling, compounding and converting.
Calculation of recycled content is described in the European standard EN 15343:2007 Plastics Recycling. Recycled plastics traceability, assessment of conformity and recycled content.
