Abstract:This research project on the legislation and practice of recycling of PET packaging in Europe is conducted on behalf of the H.J. Heinz Innovation Centre continental Europe. The objectives of the research project are: • To determine what legislation and guidelines the European Union and individual European countries currently have for the recycling of Heinz’ plastic packaging, and if there are any changes to be foreseen in the next 5 years. • To describe what recycling methods European countries currently use for the recycling of Heinz’ plastic packaging, and if there are any changes to be foreseen in the next 5 years. • To determine the ‘recyclability’ of Heinz’ plastic packaging by researching the compatibility of the packaging with current recycling methods. • To make recommendations for the Heinz’ packaging development team, using the information gained, about design guidelines for recycling. This is to inform Heinz about optimally and effectively responding to current and future legislation and recycling methods. The research project was conducted in four months time. Due to the limited time available the research was restricted to the exploration of three countries: The Netherlands, Germany and the United Kingdom. And two types of Heinz packaging: the Top Down 570ml bottle and the Icon 875ml bottle. The focus of the research project is on mechanical recycling, where used plastic packaging is converted to new raw material, that can be used for the production of new products.
