REC-NIR Black™

Near infrared sorting for recycling black packaging

Most black packaging cannot be sorted by recycling companies, so it’s usually sent to landfills or used for energy recovery. REC-NIR Black™ masterbatch is near infrared (NIR) transparent to allow scanning by NIR technology for automated sorting at recovery facilities. REC-NIR Black™ can help significantly reduce the carbon footprint by giving black plastic packaging a second life. 

REC-NIR Black™ was named a 2019 Plastic Recycling Europe winner in the category of Product Technology Innovation of the Year.
