RecyClass publishes sorting protocol for plastic packaging

RecyClass, a cross-industry initiative working to advance plastic packaging recyclability and traceability in Europe, has unveiled its 'Sorting Evaluation Protocol for Plastic Packaging', which is geared towards companies that would like to analyse how packaging can be sorted after use.

The group defines a product as recyclable if it can be collected, recycled in a commercially available process, used in the manufacture of new products, and – as emphasised by RecyClass's new protocol – sorted into an aggregated stream. This definition was first developed by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) and Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE) in 2018.
