Assessment tool for packaging

Plastic is an important material in the packaging industry. The material offers many advantages – but also faces criticism due to the great challenge to create a closed loop for plastic in the sense of a circular economy. However, the prerequisite for this is packaging which is recyclable. But how can recyclability be determined in the most efficient and reliable way possible? Fraunhofer UMSICHT tested a software tool developed by Henkel.
