Increasing recyclability: How PreZero SPOT works 

PreZero SPOT combines intelligent digital analyses with operational packaging expertise for advanced eco design. The data entry process in the sustainable packaging tool is based on the item being packaged and not the packaging itself. This means that you can not only learn what packaging can be improved but also see how your individual products and sections of your assortment are currently performing.  

You can also simulate potential changes to your eco design whenever you want, which means that you can gradually update your product portfolio.  

In the next step, you will discover some of the features that you can use to further develop​ ​the eco design of your packaging and ensure that you meet the relevant environmental, political, retail and consumer requirements.  


Intelligent ​​​​packaging input

PreZero SPOT is designed to be intuitive and easy to use, which means that you can always focus on your goals and workflows. You do not have to enter each individual component for each packaging. Instead, you can smartly assemble your packaging units modularly, using several pre-configured components. This saves time, prevents errors and reduces packaging costs.​ ​ 

Cross-border analysis

In just a few clicks, you can see an overview of the European countries in which your packaging is currently recyclable. Further details are only one mouse click away. For example, you can analyze the carbon footprint of your packaging and check which taxes and fees have to be paid in individual countries.

Why your company should be looking to Sustainable Packaging 

It pays to take the initiative now because legislation is going to get tougher in the coming years. This means that more and more companies are facing the challenge of using more recyclable packaging material. 

​​For example, if the new EU Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR) is passed, then all packaging placed on the EU market must be recyclable by 2030. However, even before this, companies in Germany that do not meet these requirements may face higher costs due to further developments in the relevant national laws. Consumers are also becoming more demanding and more conscious of the choices they make. They are more concerned about sustainable, recyclable packaging and about the environmental impact of non-recyclable materials. This is a concern that the retail industry is taking seriously, with retailers looking to manufacturers to make the necessary changes to make their portfolios more eco-friendly.​     ​​ 

​​With PreZero SPOT in cooperation with Packaging Cockpit and its analysis and evaluation features, you can assess the recyclability of your packaging, carry out life cycle assessments and check packaging costs at any time. With this information, you can plan for tomorrow, today.  You can avoid additional payments, such as plastic taxes, and reduce the cost of licensing fees and levies.​​​ 

The IT solution from PreZero and Packaging Cockpit is based on the standards set out in the Circular Packaging Design Guidelines published by FH Campus Wie​​​​n and the Packaging Design for Recycling Guide developed by the ​​World Packaging Organization (WPO) and ECR. Thanks to its consideration of country-​s​pecific waste disposal structures and features, on the one hand, the standard complies with the ​​German minimum standard for the recyclability of packaging set out by the Zentrale Stelle Verpackungsregister (Central Agency Packaging Register – ZSVR). On the other hand, it also makes it possible​​ to identify differences from one country to another. For example, is your packaging recyclable in Germany but not in France, Spain or Italy? PreZero SPOT provides you with a simple overview. The correct calculation of life cycle assessments is based on data from EcoInvent and was verified by Fraunhofer UMSICHT.
