We help you to design your packaging recyclable

To have packaging that is suitable for recycling is not only popular with consumers and retailers, it is also a requirement of German Packaging Act. But how recyclable is your packaging? With our scientifically based evaluation method, we analyse the recyclability and on this basis recommend action to improve the packaging's sustainability.

Our service

In our INTERSEROH centre of competence for plastics recycling in Maribor, Slovenia, we analyse the recyclability of your plastic packaging under real conditions. Paper packaging is examined in cooperation with the Munich University of Applied Sciences using the PTS method PTS-RH 021/97.

Our packaging analysis includes a laboratory analysis in these institutes, a complete reporting including recommendations for action and a certificate which can be used as a template for customers.

You are developing a new packaging and need an assessment of its recyclability as soon as possible? Then our expert assessment is the right service for you. In our expert assessment we will give you an initial assessment of the recyclability of your packaging within a maximum of 48 hours (2 working days). The result is for internal purposes only and may not be communicated externally.


With our "Made for Recycling" seal, we make recyclability visible. We evaluate packaging according to 8 scientific criteria with 0 - 20 points. Packaging that receives 18 or more points is regarded as being of "very good recyclability" according to our standardised evaluation methodology (developed together with the bifa environmental institute and affirmed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV) and is allowed to carry the seal. This helps environmentally conscious customers to purchase sustainable products.

Made for Recycling: How it works

How recyclable is your packaging? Our standardised assessment approach has been developed together with independent research institutes.

Your path to a sustainable packaging optimisation

You send us a sample of the packaging that you want to optimise.
We use our assessment method to check and analyse your packaging. This involves considering the end-of-life process from collection to recycling.
We present you with a certificate, a seal and a detailed report containing specific recommendations for action.

Your path to a sustainable packaging optimisation

You can optimise your packaging based on our recommendations.
Within a few weeks, we carry out a second analysis of your packaging and confirm the optimisation.
