To enable circular economy there are two major challenges
For this reason, R-Cycle records recycling relevant data along the value chain and makes them accessible in a digital product passport.
At the end of the life cycle, this simplifies the sorting process and allows a higher quality recyclate to be used for the circular economy.
To demonstrate the advantages of a digital product passport in combination with a fully recyclable polypropylene crisp bag, Brückner Maschinenbau partnered up with other key players of the packaging value chain. The result is a high quality recyclate, suitable for the second life packaging. By using this recyclate, it is possible to reduce the carbon footprint.
