Interested in making plastic packaging circular?

Norner offers services in recyclable packaging development, recycling pilot trials and material testing as well as RecyClass certification of recyclability


Packaging Development

Norner has long experience in development and verification of new packaging concepts. This is enabled by our pilot lines which include:

  • Injection moulded prototypes in caps, thin wall and other packaging
  • Film multilayer extrusion and MDO pilots
  • Extrusion blow moulding
  • Thermoforming


Recycling Pilot Centre

Norner has been working extensively with recycling technology, recycled materials and product development with such materials during the past years which makes us a partner with relevant expertise for your projects. 

Our new Polymer Exploration Centre, has more than 4500 sqm of plastic laboratories for advanced testing and analysis as well as a high-tech plastic processing, recycling, application, and packaging centre. This includes facilities for:

  • Grinding and washing/rinsing of products
  • Extrusion of recycled materials with a high-quality twin screw Coperion ZSK26 with vacuum venting and various feeding alternatives
  • State of the art melt filter unit for cleaning the melt stream of recycled material
  • Odour and volatile reduction technologies
  • Other testing include: Filter-test, gels testing, composition and purity of polymer, additive analysis, migration, extraction and chromatography, T&O panel
  • A wide range of standard material testing and polymer analysis
  • Film extrusion, Blow moulding, Injection Moulding and Thermoforming
  • Prototype product testing and material performance


RecyClass certification 

Plastics Recyclers Europe developed RecyClass as a standardised tool for several types of recyclability assessments of plastic packaging, answering the needs of the entire plastic value chain.

  • Design for Recycling Certification, which allows classifying qualitatively from A to F the technical recyclability of a final plastic packaging on the EU market.
  • Recyclability Rate Certification, which allows rating the effective recyclability of a final plastic packaging in a specific geographical area.
  • Letter of compatibility, which allows to evaluate the recyclability of semi-finished packaging qualitatively and based on the Design for Recycling Certification.
  • Laboratory Testing Protocols for testing of new and innovative materials to prove their recyclability.

Norner is a certification body and recognised laboratory for protocol testing of recyclability. The recycling pilot centre is key to deliver the RecyClass laboratory protocol testing.
