Austrian Packaging Day 2021

On the occasion of the Austrian Packaging Day 2021 “Circular Economy – Orientation in the Packaging Jungle”, the FH Campus Wien is organizing a press conference on October 28, 11.00 a.m. in the MAK.

International guideline for successfully increasing recycling rates

There is no internationally valid standard for how packaging must be designed so that it can actually be recycled. With a globally harmonized packaging design guideline, the FH Campus Wien, the ECR Community, and the World Packaging Organization want to set uniform and widely accepted recommendations for packaging design suitable for recycling. This is intended to provide orientation for all actors in the value chain and thus support them in achieving higher recycling rates within the framework of the EU circular economy package.
