Companies are looking for ways to manufacture more sustainable products by using recycled materials, and to communicate their efforts in a substantiated and transparent way that inspires trust. 
This is exactly the aim of the QA-CER Recycled Content initiative. 

Development of a test method to assess Non-Intentionally added substances

Victor Dewulf and Peter Hedley have developed an AI-driven waste recognition and sorting system that waste processing facilities can use to quickly and accurately sort waste, ensuring that more of it is recycled.

CISUTAC will find a solution to the current bottlenecks in the transition to circular and sustainable textiles and clothing.

Degradable coatings increase the biodegradability of coated materials and simplify waste treatment and recycling without impurities from coating polymers.

PRecycling, a Horizon Europe project, aims to develop an easy-to-use methodology for sorting, sampling, tracing and recycling plastic waste streams, including detection and separation of legacy additives, along with standard analysis procedures for both plastic waste materials and recyclates (secondary raw materials) in order to produce consistently high quality, safe-to-use recyclates based on their degradation degree and added-value products with predicted lifetime.

During the last decade, nonwoven filter bags for vacuum cleaners have systematically replaced paper filter bags because of their much better properties. However, the use of high-quality and heavy nonwovens in disposable products has become highly critical for ecological reasons.

Brussels, January 26, 2022 - PolyCert Europe, a platform bringing together existing national certification schemes in a comprehensive system for polymer converters, announced the launch of its new website.

How can a multilayer plastic food packaging be recyclable and at the same time have the optimal barrier properties to ensure the shelf life of food products?
