Revised design for recycling guidelines for polyolefin packaging

30 January 2018

Plastics Recyclers Europe (PRE) has released an updated version of the Design for Recycling Guidelines for polyolefin packaging. The amended guidelines differentiate between coloured and non-coloured polyolefin packaging. Ton Emans, PRE President said: Good design for recycling will boost recyclates’ quality which is fundamental to increase the use of recycled material.
The criteria of the guidelines were developed according to the expertise of the European plastics recyclers. There are now 8 new guidelines available: PE-HD coloured & natural containers, PP coloured and natural containers, PE coloured & transparent film and PP coloured & transparent film (News Item PRE, 19 December 2017).
