Sorting – Crucial Step to Ensure Recyclability

RecyClass Publishes Sorting Protocol for Plastic Packaging
‘Sorting Evaluation Protocol for Plastic Packaging’ is a Standard Practice that is geared at evaluating the behaviour of a plastic product during the sorting process in Europe. Destined to any company that would like to analyse the sortability of its innovative packaging, in line with design for recycling principles.
Recyclability must be verified at every step of a recycling process and assessing plastic packaging’s sortability plays an important role in claiming whether and to what extent a product is recyclable. Following the definition of recyclability, a plastic product can be considered recyclable not only if it is collected, recycled in a commercially available process, used in the manufacture of new products but also when it is sorted into an aggregated stream.
