RecyClass Structure

The RecyClass team ensures the coordination of activities and technical expertise. Please find below the functions and the composition of the main working groups.

The Steering Board is composed of 11 members representing the plastic value chain, including recyclers and representatives from the Advisory Board. The Board is established mainly to define the priorities of RecyClass and steer the work that takes place in the different Technical Committees.

The main purpose of the Advisory Board is to set the priorities of RecyClass and to regulate the work of the various technical committees. The Advisory Board is composed of one representative per Platinum members of RecyClass. The main goal of the group consists on discussing and monitoring the evaluation of recyclability while proposing measures to follow developments on the plastics sector. The Advisory Board is co-chaired by 3 elected representatives.

RecyClass created five Technical Committees for each type of plastic packaging: HDPE ; PP ; PO films ; PET and PS. These Committees are composed of at least 5 participants (recyclers and AB representatives), elected by the Platform members for a period of time of 2 years. All the other Platform Platinum members can attend the TC meetings as guests. The main activities of the Technical Committees include the design and review of the Recyclability Evaluation Protocols, Assessment of innovative Technologies and Products, and update of the Design for Recycling guidelines.
