The FlexFunction2sustain consortium partner IPC is now accredited by RecyClass as a “laboratory” to carry out recyclability tests according to 4 different protocols :
- rigid HDPE
- rigid PP
- flexible PE
- flexible PP
These specific PRE recyclability protocols then gives rise to obtaining a recyclability certificate issued by Recyclass after analysis of the results.
RecyClass is a comprehensive cross-industry initiative that works to advance plastic packaging recyclability and to establish a harmonized approach towards recycled content calculation and its traceability in Europe. Activities within RecyClass include the development of Recyclability Evaluation Protocols and scientific testing of innovative materials which serve as the base for the Design for Recycling guidelines and the free online tool. RecyClass offers Recyclability Certifications and Recycled Content Traceability Certification for plastic packaging.
