Here is something interesting to hear about: The R-Cycle initiative is pooling the resources of five industry giants, who all share the commitment and conviction to achieve the same mission: To uniform industry processes allowing to track and manage plastics
SABIC – a polymer supplier and producer
AVIENT – masterbatch innovator
MERCK – pioneer in laser marking
REIFENHÄUSER – machine maker
KOENIG & BAUER – provider of industrial laser systems
Designers, join the R-Cycle Webinar to learn how to turn plastic trash into treasure!
Why attend? We believe it is important to understand what’s going on in the industry!
More knowledge will help us design packaging that fits sustainability standards in order to contribute to a circular economy.
R-Cycle has introduced a digital passport (DDP) to promote a genuine circular economy. The DDP allows production machinery to automatically record all recycling-related properties and pass relevant information along the value chain, where it can be retrieved via markers on packaging. This makes it possible to identify recyclable packaging on waste-sorting lines and form recycling-friendly and pure fractions. By providing a cross-industry standard, R-Cycle connects all partners at each stage of the recycling value chain –from raw materials, to packaging manufacturers, plastic converters, and the recycling industry.
