ENGEL, one of the world's leading manufacturers of plastic injection moulding machines, joins R-Cycle
The link to the digital product passport is made via corresponding markings on the products, for example digital watermarks or QR codes. Using the additional information, waste sorting facilities can identify recyclable plastic products more precisely and provide single-variety fractions for recycling. This is the key to being able to recycle plastics of equal or even higher value.
“With ENGEL, we are gaining another global player and experienced partner that consistently designs its products technologically for sustainable business,” adds Dr. Benedikt Brenken, Director of the R-Cycle Community. “Digital product passports offer enormous potential for the circular economy – we now need to implement this together.”
