What is Flustix Recycled?

A certification mark for the use of recycled plastics

Flustix Recycled is a unique certification indicating the use of plastic recyclates in new products

Industrially produced products look increasingly similar. Nevertheless, there can be huge differences in their materials. Manufacturers often wonder how to fight their aggressive competitors while keeping their sustainable products on the market. How can they oppose cheap products with more expensive yet sustainable, high quality products?

The Flustix certification for recyclates is suitable for products made from recycled material, in the production of which z. B. plastic waste can be used before or after use. This explicitly includes industrial waste. The focus of certification is the evaluation of the traceability system and thus the calculation of the recycled content in the final product. An extension of the certification to further materials is possible on request.

Flustix understands “Recycled” a plastic of all kinds according to our definition, which can be prepared by targeted collection and can be used for new goods. The certification is based on the certification program – products made of recycled material according to DIN EN ISO 14021 and DIN EN 15343, status: January 2019.

Secondary plastics as a viable solution for the future

If the use of plastic can not be avoided, the use of recycled materials is the first step into the direction of plastic reduction:  In Europe alone, around 26 million tonnes of plastic waste are produced each year, according to the EU Commission. Not even a third of it is recycled. Plastic recycling means freeing our planet and especially the oceans in the long term from ever new and uncontrollable waste streams.

Flustix assessment of the use of recycled plastics

Flustix Recycled:
a certification for all industries

  • Flustix Recycled certifies resource-saving alternatives for food and single-use packaging, circulation packaging and beverage bottles.
  • Environmentally-friendly packaging significantly influences cosmetics and sanitary products purchasing decisions. Many consumers are even happy to pay higher prices then. As a result, consumers are even scrutinising conventional cosmetics. Today’s consumers assess packaging types carefully before deciding whether or not to make a purchase
  • Flustix Recycled certifies products used in construction such as window frames, flooring, insulation, and other prefabricated components
    containing recycled synthetics. Construction supplies including fixtures, cable ties, dowels and others also qualify.
  • Functional textiles and fashion products can be made with recycled materials which are highly in demand, too. Conventionally produced
    fashion, which does not provide transparency regarding its production
    processes, has increasingly fallen into disrepute. Clear certification through Flustix is very profitable in this sector.
  • Surfaces, coatings and foil made from recycled materials.The use of new plastics in car manufacturing has steadily increased
    over the last 20 years. Already today, 50% of plastics used in this
    industry are recyclates. Dashboards, bumpers, tanks, handles, knobs, housings, containers, clamps, sockets – a market for recyclates.
