By recognising recyclability as the interface between product design and recycling, it becomes an essential element of applied product responsibility. The Institute cyclos-HTP has developed an evaluation method to determine the recyclability of packaging and goods in a reliable, standardised process.
Our activities include research, consulting and development in the field of Design for Recycling of packaging and the optimization of its sustainability (Eco Design). Focus is on the classification, assessment, testing and optimization of the recyclability of packaging and goods as well as research and development in this field.
The result of the assessment and certification can be communicated through the use of a label. If desired, the Institute cyclos-HTP grants authorisation for the use of the copyrighted and trademarked label.
Product design, manufacturing processes and recycling techniques are subject to constant technical developments and interactions. The Institute cyclos-HTP actively accompanies research projects in the respective areas.
Recyclability is the central element of implementing a resource-friendly product responsibility and the interface between product design and recycling. The Institute cyclos-HTP offers workshops and trainings on this topic.
