The company will provide an advanced and integrated holistic solution to track life cycle of paper, cardboard and carton packaging.

Smurfit Kappa Recovered Paper vice-president Henri Vermeulen said: “We are delighted to provide this first to market service to our customers in Germany.

“Recycling Dual provides a cost-effective solution for our customers which boosts recycling rates and meets a specific business need.”

A German federal law requires all manufacturers and retailers using consumer packaging to purchase licences for the usage. Costs of the license is expected to increase by up to 30% in 2021.

The newly created business will provide a complete solution to recycle packaging through a nationwide collection system.

Recycling Dual managing director Heiner Oepen said: “The integrated system combines Smurfit Kappa’s expertise in paper, packaging and long-term experience in the recycling industry and delivers on our solution focused approach to assisting our customers.”

Recycling Dual will serve as a single stop for Smurfit Kappa’s offerings in the country.

Starting next year, it will become the only company that can track the entire life cycle of paper, cardboard and carton packaging.
