ZSVR publishes new minimum standard for determining the recyclability of packaging


With the new version of the minimum standard, application has become much simpler. A more detailed description of the determination procedure makes it even easier for companies to check the recyclability of their packaging.

The new, dynamic version of the minimum standard reflects technical innovation with a three-tier system for reviewing the applicable existing recycling infrastructure. The underlying structure with its three standard criteria has proven successful in practice. By verifying the existence of a recovery infrastructure, checking sortability and separability of the packaging, and taking recycling incompatibilities into account, it can be determined quickly and conclusively whether a packaging can be recycled well.
