P&G is holding a workshop to examine using tracer-based sorting in automatic sorting lines at plastics recycling facilities.
The cross-industry meeting will be held in Brussels on 4 April and is part of P&G's commitment to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's New Plastics Economy initiative.
The workshop, which is part of the wider P&G-led “Pioneer Project: Holy Grail”, will gather stakeholders from across the plastic packaging value chain to discuss potential use cases for tracers/markers and compare competing tracer and watermark technologies.
The event will be led by P&G's principal scientist for packaging development, Gian De Belder at the Bluepoint conference centre, Belder announced during the Plastics Recycling Show Europe (PRSE) on 29 March.
Delegates will discuss the latest developments in tracer/watermark sorting, including finished tracer projects, active tracer/watermark projects.
Additionally, they will participate in a debate on how and where tracer and watermark sorting can add value and how they can be introduced and standardised across the plastics industry to ensure uniform market take-up.
