LONDON (Scrap Register): RecyClass released a procedure to assess the recyclability of plastics film in Europe with an aim of increasing circularity of packaging.
The RecyClass Recyclability Evaluation Protocol for PE films aims to analyse the impact of different technologies on the recyclability of the PE film and flexible packaging recycling stream.
“Recyclability should not be decided subjectively. The various elements constituting a plastic packaging have to be tested, analysed and measured in a transparent and repeatable manner,” said Paolo Glerean, RecyClass Chairman.
“With the publication of specific testing protocols, we aim to support all the technical solutions and materials that improve recyclability of plastic packaging,” he added.
