PlasticsEurope: Safety Datasheets for Recyclates

PlasticsEurope, Frankfurt/Main, Germany, reported: The European Plastics Converters (EuPC), the European Plastics Recyclers (EuPR), PlasticsEurope and Vinyl 2010 have officially launched the Safety Datasheets for Recyclates project (in short SDS-R).

The background is the European chemical legislation REACH that requires an information exchange between producers and users of plastic materials. Due to their particular position in the supply chain, plastics recyclers may have difficulties to assemble the necessary waste composition information and may thus not be able to provide to their customers the information required to fulfill their REACH obligations.

The aim of the project is to create tailor-made Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for recycled plastics. They will be downloadable from an interactive website accessible to the recyclers.

These SDS will be based on the historical data for polymers and toxicological data for polymer additives. Recyclers will be prompted to input specific data related to the recycled articles in order to improve the accuracy and the quality of the SDS.
