We certify the recyclability of your packaging and products by our independent method. We help you to improve the sustainability of your packaging and products while saving costs.
We assess the recyclability of your packaging by a standardized method according to the minimum standard of Stiftung Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister and the industrially available recycling processes.
We invested much time into the development of a test method which allows for the assessment of complete packaging assortments. Uncomplicated, comprehensible, and independent.
We completely relieve you from further individual operations. We take care of all related steps to certify the recyclability of your packaging.
We can determine the recyclability of complete packaging assortments by use of our standardized data base. Just use our template and the specifications of your packaging producers to test one packaging for free.
By our standardized calculation method, we can measure and certify the recyclability of your packaging. We comply with the minimum standard of Stiftung Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister.
As a result we deliver an overview of your packaging or product portfolio and can illustrate measures to optimize sustainabiltiy. Always with the aim to save costs for you. We work tightly together with partners from the recycling industry to deliver realistic assessments.

To measure recyclability the packaging needs to be divided into
Information about the solubility in water of the used glues are as well important for the assessment. The specifications of your packaging producer and the data compliance with our template at the end of this page help us to conduct the assessments in an organized and documented manner.
We are at your disposal with our support and advice concerning the data needed for assessment. We establish the data base on demand.
To get a first impression would like to offer you to fill out the template at the end of this page. We assess the recyclability of your packaging and report the result to you. In the following we can clarify your needs together with you and offer to conduct the assessment for your whole assortment.
The assessment of your packaging is conducted based on the following process:
All results are communicated in five marks (very good – insufficient) and in percentage points (recyclable proportion of weight).
The assessment of recyclability can as well be conducted for products such as e.g. household goods to communicate the usage of sustainable product components and to optimize sustainability where applicable.
We gladly define improvement possibilities concerning the recyclability of your packaging. We keep track on the multitude of tasks packaging inherits. Potential goal conflicts concern prevention, marketing, functionality, costs, and processing procedures. We willingly send examples upon request.
Taking the requirements for certain product groups into account we can offer assistance concerning the use of recycled plastics. We can identify reasonable product groups or single items for recycled plastics use, can qualify the best possible commodities and suppliers, and can initiate and accompany the implementation of recycled commodities into your products. Through our comprehensive documentation you additionally receive an overview on optimization possibilities within your supply chain.
The use of recycled materials is not only beneficial for the environment, but delivers the basis for the creation of case-studies and best-practices to communicate your sustainability measures to your customers. We can assist you at this point as well.
To measure the sustainability of your packaging or product the single-point examination of recyclability is oftentimes not sufficient. Frequently, the recycling of a packaging leads to contaminations in the re-granulate. Those contaminations decrease the quality and the market value of the recycled material.
We are able to rank the value of your packaging within the recycling process and can compare it to the maximum possible value. By this we can not only determine recyclable quantities but the qualities of secondary materials. By our optimization approaches we are able to as well improve the quality of the commodity resulting from recycling.
Besides the already mentioned quantitative and qualitative figures we account for the CO2e emission savings potential realized by the recyclability of your packaging based on cases and studies. We constantly expand our data basis to deliver statistically evaluable data, which you can use in communication to your customers.
