Mérieux NutriSciences helps supporting the claim about PAPER RECYCLABILITYPackaging
Recycling is one of Europe’s packaging priorities: behind the label ‘recyclable’ is the proof that a product will be used again to produce new material if it is properly collected after appropriate treatments.
As they have to clearly communicate to consumers, environmental claims must be precise, not misleading and scientifically proven; in this sense, official standards help us to follow shared procedures to support them.
We help our customers to support self-declared environmental claims like “recyclable with paper” applying ISO 14021 standard and to develop the necessary tests, according, for example, to CEPI (European pulp and paper industry association) method.
MXNS proposes support for the recyclability test that helps to verify and communicate the level of recyclability achieved by a paper-based material or product. The analysis simulates the main steps of the industrial process of paper for recycling until a new sheet of paper is produced. The laboratory tests the main elements that characterize the recyclability of paper and cardboard and relevant products.
