Environmental benefits of recyclability – White paper with guidance, data sources, illustrative example

Recyclability and recoverability are the scope of EN 45555 (under development), following a mass-based approach. This White paper provides guidance on possible ways how to quantitatively consider in addition the net environmental benefits of recyclability and recoverability, complementing the mass-based approach. Possible data sources as well as a worked illustrative exmple complete this short white …
