For Brandowner & Retailers

R-Cycle is the open traceability standard for sustainable plastic products and packaging. With the digital product passport, (recycling)-relevant information is already automatically recorded during packaging production and filling, forwarded through the value chain, and made retrievable via appropriate marking (e.g. digital watermarks). This enables waste sorting plants to identify recyclable packaging and form recycling-friendly, single-variety fractions. This is the basis for obtaining high-quality recyclates and a functioning circular economy.

In addition to the effective improvement of product sustainability, the fulfillment of (upcoming) legal information requirements, such as the calculation of the carbon footprint, the recycled content or in the area of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), is significantly facilitated. Time-consuming manual calculations can thus be automated in order to meet requirements from legislators or customers.
