Comieco wishes to support companies and designers in the shift towards the circular economy by enhancing its research and development activities to improve the recycling performance towards more efficient processes and the continuous increase of the amounts of recycled packaging.
Since 2021 Comieco is a member of 4evergreen Alliance a cross-industry initiative which has released Circularity by Design Guideline publication
This document is the first in a three-part series to be produced by 4evergreen, it is intended for the evaluation of compatibility of materials and components with standard mill processes. The guideline is therefore applicable to fibre-based packaging that is likely to be recycled in standard recycling mills, provided that product-specific regulations of the packaging are observed. Recommendations on the suitability of special recycling processes and recycling including deinking will be implemented in further versions in 2022.
