PolyREC Press release

Feb 16 2022

Brussels, 16th of FebruaryPolyREC® has now been recognised as an official data collector for the Circular Plastics Alliance (CPA). PolyREC® will now report on the progress of the entire European plastics value chain towards the CPA target of 10 Mt recycled plastics use by 2025 using RecoTrace™ data.

PolyREC now calls on all plastic recyclers and converters to register their recycled plastic data into RecoTrace and, in doing so, ensure transparency of the circular movement of European polymers.

RecoTrace is the first comprehensive data system to monitor both plastic recycling volumes and recycled plastic use for all main polymers. The tool provides recyclers and converters with a free-to-use online platform to track progress against individual pledges to produce or use recycled content and helping to demonstrate commitment towards circularity.

Building on Recovinyl’s 20+ years of data collection experience and expertise, RecoTrace inherits a proven track record and credibility in data monitoring. The system has now been expanded to include all main polymers: polyolefin (PO), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS) and expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XPS), polyamide (PA), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and polycarbonate (PC).
