How Polytag can help
Polytag’s Describe, Tag and Trace technology is applied to packaging during the production process. This enables businesses, governments, and consumers to understand how packaging is handled, sorted and managed ‘post-consumption’.
Polytag solutions also give visibility of ‘ownership’ of plastic, so that when it is being sorted in Material Recovery Facilities (MRF) or Plastic Recovery Facilities (PRF) there are records of how much of a particular brands plastic is being handled and sorted.
The cloud-based technology holds information such as who produced the plastic, when and where the packaging was produced and the percentage of recycled materials it includes.
Once disposed of, Polytagged packaging is scanned at the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and/or Plastics Recovery Facility (PRF), where it is ‘marked’ as recycled. The plastic is then bailed, ready to be recycled and returned to the circular economy.
