RecyClass


 

The recyclability tool for plastic package

Design determines whether packaging can be recycled. If you want to design environmentally-friendly packaging, here you can learn what is important. In just a few steps you can check the level of recyclability of your package by using RecyClass™.

There is also advice on improving your package's design. Finally, you can have your package certified by an expert in case you want to use our label in your marketing.

Recycling entails the reuse of spent packaging in a new plastic product. Far too much plastic packing is not fit for this purpose and is hence destined for energy recovery only. The recyclability of packaging can be improved when specific criteria are closely followed. This is not possible with all packaging because other functions (e.g. convenience, shelf life, transport safety) take precedence. However, we are convinced that much more is achievable.
