PTS Online Seminar "Recyclability of paper & board based packaging"
The workshop gives the opportunity to get a closer look at different main aspects of recycling and recovered paper.
From the Framework given by different stakeholders and the different legislations, we will then look closer into the Technical aspects of recycling. Therefore, we will look at the three main steps of recycling: Collection – Sorting – Material Recycling. We will then look at packaging design and concrete examples to see what the challenges of the recycling Steps are more precisely.
- Certification and labels for recyclability and other EOL options
- Relevant stakeholders/associations and their current activities in Europe
- Legislation and regulations for packaging waste and paper for recycling (e.g. EN 643)
Technical aspects of recycling

- Rejects from recycling in a paper mill – types, characteristics, current and future utilization options
- Recycling technologies for preparation and processing of paper & board based – packaging State of the art, special technologies
- Test methods for recyclability – paper and board based packaging (incl. virtual lab tour)
- Paper and board based packaging – materials, packaging types, packaging aids
- Design parameters for recyclability
Group of participants
