We are glad to announce that Masterpress received the RecyClasss Letter of Compatibility “design for recycling” when using our shrink sleeve solution on dairy cups. Our sleeve label applied onto a PP cup, has been awarded a positive recyclability assessment from the RecyClass association.
We submitted our packaging solution for assessment by Suez.circpack®. The tests were conducted according to RecyClass methodology.
Following the performed tests, Masterpress was granted a “Letter of Conformity”, confirming that the assessed product met the requirements of compatibility with readily available sorting and recycling technologies commonly used at industrial scale in the recycling sector in Europe. It means that during the recycling process the cup will be directed straight to the rigid polypropylene fraction recovery stream, without the need of prior removal of the sleeve.
The solution developed by Masterpress is environmentally friendly and fits well with the principles of circular economy.
