PET Thermoforms represent more than one million tons of PET packaging in Europe and the sector is gearing up towards circularity. The Tray Circularity Evaluation Platform (TCEP) has been created to support the development of the recycling of thermoforms. TCEP has developed design guidelines for PET Thermoforms that are widely recognised and used by the industry. Strong testing procedures have been established to assess recyclability and a modus operandi ensures that the assessments are based on scientific evidence and final assessment is valid for the whole value chain. As a result, these assessments are scientifically relevant, trusted, and independent from the views of any one single sector.
