Design for Recycling calculator
Depending on the choice of material, layering, glue, choice of colours, finishing, the mix of materials, and other variables, a piece of packaging can be either easy, complicated, or impossible to recycle or reuse. Designers know this, but despite this knowledge, it's not always easy for them to make the right choices. It requires information and calculations that are both highly complex and time-consuming.

The recyclability calculator from Grønt Punkt Norge automatically makes these complex calculations. In the calculator it is possible to enter all the details of the packaging, including all sub-parts, for all packaging materials, and get information on how well the packaging is suited for the sorting and recycling system. Each company can build up their own library, that only they have access to.

In the Norwegian market, the calculator is only available for members of Grønt Punkt Norge.
