RecyClass is a comprehensive cross-industry initiative that advances plastic packaging recyclability and ensures traceability and transparency of recycled plastic content in Europe.

Norner has been working together with RecyClass and Plastic Recyclers Europe for some years to  become both a certification body for recyclability of packaging and a recognized laboratory for their protocols of testing for recyclability.

Certification and online-tool

RecyClass Online Tool assesses the recyclability of plastic packaging and shows to what extent it is suitable for recycling, rating it with a class system from A to F.

The Tool can be used freely by the plastic industry to self-assess existing packaging or to stimulate the recyclability of innovative packaging concepts.
