WELCOME TO THE APR GLOBAL DESIGN CATALOG
The APR Global Design Catalog is your all-in-one, easy-to-understand resource to access the most current plastic packaging recyclability guidelines for different countries and regions around the world.
Different countries and regions operate a variety of recycling collection and processing systems. Many of them oversee complex extended producer responsibility (EPR) programs that hold manufacturers and suppliers accountable for the end-of-life fate of packaging materials, including many types of plastic packaging.
EPR programs in virtually all jurisdictions reference some design for recyclability index to encourage companies to design more sustainable packaging. Due to the differences in operational recycling systems and EPR requirements among countries, harmonizing design for recyclability across the globe is a challenging endeavor. APR’s Global Design Catalog allows you to have all the design requirements at your fingertips, to assist in comparing and contrasting systems in different countries.
The catalog includes information from Denmark, EU, France, Germany, Netherlands, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, and UK. It covers recyclability evaluations for rigid PET, rigid HDPE, rigid PP, and flexible PE film packaging.
