"Classification of Recycled Plastics by Data Quality Levels for Use and (Digital) Trading" facilitates your procurement process by bringing transparency about the recyclates being traded. The data quality standards provide our industry with a common language that allows the parties trading recycled material to be more assured and avoid misunderstandings.
Definitions PCR & PIR (Section 3)
Data Quality Levels (DQLs)
For Recyclates (Section 5)
Recyclate Content Calculations (Section 6)
Labelling (Section 6)
Characterization of Plastic Waste Feedstock (Annex C)
DIN SPEC 91446 provides clear guidelines for the classification and description of recycled plastic, helping buyers to ensure that they are getting the quality of material they require.
DIN SPEC 91446 is recognized by the European Commission as a:
Standard paving the way toward a circular future in plastics.
Members of the consortium
DIN SPEC 91446 was a collaborative effort. We brought together 16 leading actors from the entire plastic value chain to draft this novel standard. In joint effort together with IKK from Hannover, we brought DIN SPEC 91446 alive in just over 12 months of work. More than 3000 working hours across more than 28 meetings went into the drafting process. With resounding success.
