RecyClass announced that it has doubled capacity to certify recycled plastics content. The organization facilitates certification of the actual percentage of recycled content in plastic through independent third-party auditors who ensure reliable assessments and impartiality.

Since its official launch in July 2020, RecyClass has more than doubled the number of recognized auditors to 25 from 21 certification bodies across Europe.

“This interest is a clear signal that the industry, as well as the participants in the plastics value chain, are looking for reliable schemes to demonstrate and report on their sustainability goals in a coherent manner, and RecyClass meets their demands,” said Gian de Belder, Technical Director, R&D Packaging Sustainability at P&G and Advisory Board Chairman at RecyClass.

The objective of the RecyClass Recycled Plastics Traceability Certification is to provide a transparent assessment of the incorporation of recycled content in products. It is ideal for any company that plays a part in the value chain of plastics including but not limited to compounders, converters, blow molders, and brand owners, said the organization. Beyond the value chain, it also brings trust in recycled materials to consumers.
