Abstract:This research project is executed on behalf of Wageningen UR. The project participates the project SD002 Sustainable Packages. The project originated by a collaboration between TI Food & Nutrition and the Kennisinstituut Duurzaam Verpakken (KIDV). The research project was conducted in three months time. The aim of this project is to collect technical and marketing data from a 3x3 matrix of packages that are available on the Dutch market, see table 1. The technical data is the levels of attached moisture and dirt material composition and the average weight of those packages. The results includes the average and extreme values. Besides, a goal is to determine the significance of this data for the recycling of the 3x3 matrix’s packages. This is done by describing the general recycling system and making an estimation of the efficiency of mechanical recycling facilities with the results of the composition research. Finally, the problems of the recycling will be described and the aim is to determine guidelines for designing recyclable packages.
