The European platform for the promotion of recycled content in C&I packaging.

the project


Plareco is an initiative of Valipac, the Belgian EPR for C&I packaging, and has been further developed with the support of EPRO and other European organisations.

Our aim is to bring together suppliers of plastic C&I packaging containing recycled material on a single European platform.
We ensure that all products listed on the platform have the necessary certification and make our database available to our partners throughout Europe.

Our mission

  • Facilitate the use of recycled content in C&I packaging
  • Establish one common European database for C&I packaging containing recycled content
  • Guarantee the recycled content of C&I packaging by recognized certification systems

The phoenix

The phoenix resurrecting from the ashes and getting an eternal life was selected as symbol for plastics which can be recycled into new products.

I’m an national organisation

The integration of recycled content in plastic packaging will become a significant area of focus for brand owners all over Europe for the following reasons:

  • Avoid/reduce taxes
  • Obtain EPR bonuses
  • Meet Corporate Social Responsibility goals
  • Reach voluntary or mandatory targets (Circular Plastics Alliance, Plastic Pact,…)

Plareco gives you the opportunity to access a database of suppliers of C&I packaging with recycled content and to share this information with brand owners active in your country.

I’m looking for a local platform of C&I packaging

Our platform only offers a listing of plastic C&I packaging with recycled content. It does not sell the items and does not provide any price information.
However, you have access to the contact details of the various suppliers in case you want to contact them for further information or to place an order.
As legal requirements for recycled content are state-specific, you will be redirected to the website related to your country.
Following national organisations use information mentioned in the Plareco database for C&I plastic packaging in their national websites.

We are implemented in 4 European countries.
Please choose one to find your local platform.

I’m a supplier

By listing plastic C&I packaging made from recycled plastics in our database, your company can enhance its image and gain a competitive advantage.

Our platform only offers a listing of items with recycled content. It does not allow the items to be marketed and does not provide any price information. It does not allow you to list products made of virgin plastics.

As a supplier, you must have a certificate (minimum level 2) confirming the share of PCR, PIR or bio-based content in your product item. We recommend working with certification schemes affiliated with Polycert Europe or with RecyClass Recycled Plastics Certification.
