RecyClass has updated its Recyclability Evaluation protocols and released a new set of Design for Recycling Guidelines for all plastic packaging streams following the findings of 18 testing campaigns commissioned in 2023. The latest set provides the industry with the most up-to-date recommendations for improving the recyclability of plastic packaging, according to RecyClass, which is a nonprofit, cross-industry initiative facilitating the transition toward a circular plastic future.

The latest design recommendations have been used to update the RecyClass Online Tool and the RecyClass Recyclability Certification Scheme. New testing campaigns are underway and will further complement the recommendations found in the RecyClass Design for Recycling Guidelines, according to the organization.

Several components have been evaluated via independent testing facilities to investigate the behavior of common packaging technologies during sorting and recycling processes. These tests were carried out according to standardized testing methods, as described in the RecyClass Recyclability Evaluation Protocols.
