Making recycled plastics the norm by 2030

13th of February 2024 – Eindhoven & Amsterdam. Investor NETZSCH and impact investor DOEN Participaties invest in Veridis to bring MADSCAN to the market. With its secured funding, in 2024 and 2025, Veridis will build and run customer pilots with its innovative MADSCAN technology. First in the Netherlands and Germany, having two of the most developed and well-connected plastic recycling industries in Europe. Then, the company will roll out its MADSCAN (eco)system across Europe, realizing its vision of a standardized quality control method for EU plastic recycling.  

MADSCAN is a new thermal analysis technology, meaning that it measures the different ways in which different plastic types melt and crystallize again. Every type of plastic has a unique thermal ‘fingerprint’ and MADSCAN accurately measures these fingerprints by tracking these thermal changes when heating and cooling a sample of recycled plastic. This allows Veridis to tell recycling companies exactly which types of plastics are in their batches.

“We are incredibly excited to have NETZSCH and DOEN Participaties on board to help us take our company and our technology MADSCAN into the next phase. Together, we are building the solution to accelerate plastic recycling!”

With conventional thermal analysis techniques, analyzing large, representative samples is impossible. This is due to the challenge of transferring heat equally through a larger amount of material. To illustrate, when a piece of frozen food, for example, chicken, is put in an oven, the outside will burn whilst the inside remains frozen. Heat does not transfer well throughout a large item. Because of this problem, today it’s only possible to measure samples of 20-50 milligrams at a time, which then needs to represent more than 1000 kilograms of material. This is of course not the case.

Veridis is the first company to solve this major challenge, being able to already analyze up to 30 grams per sample (a 10.000x sample size increase) today and between 50 and 500(!) grams per sample (a 100.000x sample size increase) with the MADSCAN system soon. This massive leap in scalability enables measuring the composition & quality of large amounts of recycled plastics at a representative scale. This allows recyclers to give better quality guarantees to brand owners to ensure that they can use recycled plastics reliably and effectively in their products to meet their ambitious recycling commitments.

25% recycled content in all our plastic packaging in 2027 in the Netherlands and 30% EU-wide in 2030, that’s the dot on our horizon according to the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (PPWD). Today, this still hovers around 2% because plastics are not all the same. There are 250+ types of plastics, but these can NOT be recycled together. Flexible food packaging (LDPE) and sturdy shampoo bottles (HDPE) end in the same (plastic)bin, but a Snickers wrapper and a bottle cannot be fused into a new bottle. But how do we measure how well we separate these millions of tons of yearly plastic waste? Barely, and that’s what Veridis aims to change.

Recycling plastic requires many complex steps to go from bin to new product. Knowing exactly what we’re recycling at each step is a challenge and existing control methods are not built to analyze plastics at the EU’s ambitious scales. Major brands have made big commitments and the EU dictates recycled contents minima. So we need to solve this challenge, fast!

The Study:

Quality Aspects in the Compounding of Plastic Recyclate

Where: Pforzheim University of Applied Science

When: Published January 31, 2023, in Recycling

The Takeaway:

Key findings from the survey reveal that the input material has minimal influence on the frequency of quality problems in a study conducted among compounding companies in Germany about the challenges they face in plastic reprocessing. However, component production is a more demanding step that immediately highlights quality problems. Using more test procedures to determine the material composition of the input material stream can reduce the frequency of quality problems. The research also suggests that online methods do not necessarily mitigate quality problems but increase the subjective perception of their frequency. The companies surveyed state that the causes of quality problems are found in the previous processing steps, such as sorting and collection. The study concludes that the mechanical processing of plastic waste into recyclates is currently the most frequent method used in Germany. Still, various problems can occur in the recycling process that may affect the final recyclate quality. The study is limited by the small dataset, which increases the uncertainty factor and the subjectivity of the respondents’ answers.

What It Looked At:

An examination took place into the processes and practices of compounding companies responsible for processing post-consumer plastic waste into high-quality recyclate material. Compounding companies were chosen because they play a critical role in ensuring that recycled plastic meets the required quality standards for new products.

Setting their sights on compounding companies, the researchers conducted interviews to understand their processes for sourcing, sorting, cleaning, and processing plastic waste. They also looked at the different technologies and equipment used by these companies to ensure the highest possible quality of the recycled plastic produced. Notably, the researchers analysed the various quality control measures employed by compounding companies to ensure that their recycled plastic is consistent and high quality.

Moreover, the study also considered the economic factors that affect the quality of recycled plastic. Compounding companies must balance the need for high-quality recyclate material with the cost of processing and the price they can obtain for the final product. The researchers explored how compounding companies optimise their processes to maximise the value of their products while maintaining high-quality standards.

In addition, the study also examined the compounding process used by several companies, including large and small-scale operations. It looked at the types of equipment used in the process, the quality of the raw materials used, the additives added to the plastic, and the process conditions (such as temperature and mixing time).

And finally, the researchers also examined the final product quality of the recyclate produced by these companies. They looked at the physical properties of the recycled plastic, such as its tensile strength and elongation, appearance, and colour. They also tested the recyclate for potential contaminants, such as residual monomers or other impurities that could affect the quality of the recycled material.

Overall, the study examined the complex processes and factors involved in maximising the quality of recycled plastic produced by compounding companies. By examining these factors, the researchers aimed to identify key lessons that could be applied to help other companies in the plastic processing industry improve the quality of their recycled plastic.

What It Found:

The authors of the article make a compelling case for the importance of accurate and standardised measurement and characterisation techniques for plastic waste, specifically in the context of recycling. The authors argue that the lack of standardised methods has led to inconsistencies in reporting and hindered progress in improving plastic recycling processes.

Furthermore, the article also highlights the limitations of current techniques and the need for further research to develop more efficient and reliable methods for measuring plastic waste. Additionally, the authors suggest that greater collaboration among researchers, policymakers, and industry stakeholders is necessary to address the challenges of plastic waste and promote sustainable solutions.

To sum it up, the article underscores the need for heightened precision, accuracy, and uniformity in measurement techniques. As well as greater collaboration and innovation to improve plastic recycling processes and mitigate the environmental impact of plastic waste.

Why It Matters:

In the grand scheme of enhancing plastic recycling processes and comprehensive metrology for plastic recycling, this study serves as a reminder of the pivotal role of accurate measurement and characterisation. It underscores the necessity of standardised plastic waste characterisation and cooperation among stakeholders across the value chain, fostering a more circular and sustainable plastics economy.

However, it’s essential to acknowledge the study’s focus on the mechanical properties of recycled plastic, omitting other vital factors such as chemical and thermal properties. The study’s limited use of only two types of plastics implies that the results may not be universally applicable. It also doesn’t explore the impact of diverse recycling processes on recycled plastic quality.

The following steps involve conducting broader research encompassing various plastics to validate the results across diverse materials. Examining the effect of different recycling processes on recycled plastic quality will further optimise recycling methods. Investigating the influence of recycled plastic age on its mechanical properties will provide insights into its suitability for specific applications.

Holistic metrology: Explainer


Measuring up to the challenge of plastic recycling: the importance of holistic metrology for circular plastics.

To move towards a circular economy, we need to increase the yield and quality of recycling processes. Adoption of a holistic metrology approach is essential to do this.

Written by: Nigel Visser | Updated: /03/2023
Reviewed by: Floris Gerritsen | Published: /03/2023

Holistic metrology is a method of measurement that takes into account the entire system and all of its variables rather than just one isolated aspect. In plastic recycling, this means looking at not just the composition of the plastic itself but also the conditions under which it is processed, the available technologies, and the end-use applications. By considering all of these factors together, it is possible to make more informed decisions about how to recycle plastic waste best.

Plastic waste is a major global concern and a pressing challenge for the sustainability of our planet. Despite numerous efforts to reduce the amount of plastic waste generated, it continues to accumulate in landfills, oceans, and ecosystems, causing widespread environmental damage. To tackle this problem and move towards a circular economy, where waste is reduced, reused, and recycled, we need to increase the yield and quality of recycling processes. To achieve this, a key aspect of the solution is the adoption of a holistic metrology approach.

Metrology is the science of measurement and its application in industry and commerce. By using precision measurements and instruments, it is possible to ensure that the recycling process is efficient, accurate, and sustainable. Holistic metrology takes this approach a step further, integrating all aspects of the recycling process into a comprehensive system that ensures the highest quality end product. This includes measurements of material properties, such as composition, size, and weight, as well as measurements of process parameters, such as temperature, pressure, and flow rate. By incorporating these measurements into a holistic approach, it is possible to optimise the recycling process and produce high-quality recycled plastic with minimal waste.

There are several key reasons why a holistic metrology approach is so important for plastic recycling. Firstly, it helps to ensure that the recycled plastic is high quality and suitable for its intended end-use. This is because by considering all of the variables, it is possible to identify and address any potential issues that impact the quality of the recycled material.

Another important benefit of holistic metrology is that it helps to optimise the recycling process itself. By considering the conditions under which the plastic is processed and the available technologies, it is possible to identify the most efficient and cost-effective methods for recycling. This, in turn, helps to reduce the costs of recycling and make the recycling process iselft a more sustainable and economically viable option. In addition to these benefits, holistic metrology also helps to support the development of new technologies and techniques for plastic recycling. By considering the entire system, it is possible to identify areas where improvements can be made and to explore new and innovative ways of recycling plastic waste.

There are several key applications of holistic metrology in plastic recycling, including:

The intended end-use of recycled plastic is also an important factor to consider in the recycling process. Holistic metrology takes into account the specific requirements of the end-use application, such as strength and durability, to ensure that the recycled plastic is suitable for its intended purpose.

Despite the many benefits of holistic metrology, several challenges must be overcome to realise its potential fully. One of the biggest challenges is the need for accurate and reliable measurement techniques. This requires the development of new and innovative technologies, as well as the investment in research and development to improve existing measurement methods.

Another challenge is the need for standardisation in the plastic recycling industry. With so many different types of plastic and so many variables to consider, it can be difficult to ensure that the same measurements are taken consistently across different recycling facilities. To address this issue, it is important to develop and implement standardised protocols for plastic recycling that are based on holistic metrology principles.

Finally, there is the challenge of making the results of holistic metrology more accessible and actionable. To maximise the benefits of this approach, it is important to develop tools and systems that can be used to collect and analyse data from different recycling facilities. This will allow the industry to identify best practices and to improve the quality and efficiency of plastic recycling continuously.

In conclusion, holistic metrology is an essential approach for plastic recycling that offers numerous benefits and provides a more comprehensive and accurate understanding of the recycling process. By taking into account all of the variables that impact the quality of the recycled material and the efficiency of the recycling process, it is possible to make more informed decisions and to improve the plastic recycling industry continuously. While there are challenges that must be overcome to realise the potential of holistic metrology fully, the benefits make it a critical component of any strategy to reduce plastic pollution and promote sustainability.

The main takeaway of the Plastic Recycling Show Europe is? Defining quality and how to measure it, is crucial for recycling plastics. ♻️


Seeing the openness and willingness to learn among the people at the Plastic Recycling Show Europe was great. However, one word missing in the conversations is an important one: The circular economy.

To reduce the pressure on the environment, tackle climate change and reduce dependence on fossil fuels, the transition towards a circular economy is crucial. The big challenge is on how to get there. Plastic recycling has a central role in this, and one of the essential things in this transition is recycling quality.

Figure 1

How is recycling quality currently defined?

There are nine keywords/phrases now being used regarding recycling quality:

Keywords presently used to describe qualityDefinitions
Impurity contentIs the content of untargeted materials or substances in a targeted waste stream.
Technical qualityIs a combination of the mechanical properties and the Melt-Flow Index (MFI) or a similar property which describes the molten plastics’ flow behaviour.
Technical propertiesAre the properties that give the material the ability to function according to the required specification. Typically combines mechanical and processing characteristics.
Function/functionality/ functional recyclingIs a defined set of physical and chemical properties that made the material desirable in the first place – recycling them in such a way that preserves them.
Resource dissipationIs the yield loss of material humanity can’t use anymore.
SubstitutabilityIs the degree to which a material is replaceable by an alternative resource or product (e.g. percentage of virgin plastics replaceable by recycled plastics without loss of function).
Circularity potentialIs how well a single recycling fraction can fulfil quality demands in a closed loop (e.g. how many cycles can the fraction go through before becoming unfit for purpose).
Downcycling / upcyclingA recycling process wherein a material is used in a product of lower market value instead of in a similar or higher market value product.
Closed-loop vs open-loop recyclingClosed-loop is a recycling process to reuse the recycled material for the same market application as in its previous life cycle. Open-loop means a different market application than the last cycle.

The definitions all define pieces of quality for a recycling process, with some taking a system view and others looking more towards the material itself as well as the properties relevant for the production of products.

How do we properly define recycling quality?

Currently, recycling quality is a vague term. Everyone has a different interpretation due to the lack of a clear definition, as seen in the current variety of meanings. One of the causes is that what is good and bad quality is driven mainly by the use-case of the plastic. Thus a recyclate can be very well suited for one use-case/application and be unsuitable for another. This current measure of quality takes a single recycling loop into account. Yet, when going fully circular, the material will go through the loop several times and be less suitable to substitute virgin plastics. Hence, preserving the plastic’s functionality while considering the targeted application gives a good indication of the quality of a recycling process.

Figure 2: Quality seen through the lens of different waste treatment options [source].

How to measure recycling quality

The mechanical properties such as the elastic modulus in the transverse and machine direction, impact strength, and tear strength are important factors. And are very much dependent on the impurities that are present in the material. E.g., an HDPE/PP blend can quickly become brittle, dependent on the relative fraction of each polymer in the mix. In comparison, other PE types have a different mechanical profile in combination with PP.

Figure 3: Degree of mixing at the polymer blend interface: (a) compatible polymer blends with a mixed amorphous interface and (b) immiscible polymer blends with clear phase separation [source].

Determining the different subtypes and the fractions present is essential to properly determine the quality of plastic waste at various steps in the value chain, instead of only indicating the main polymer types (e.g. PE, PP) present in a stream. The amount of impurities defines the technical characteristics that give the material functionality for a specific application. By reliably measuring the quality, we know the process’s performance, enabling the opportunity to improve. Reliable quality and transparency depend on the data that players among the value chain share. Hence data reliability and transparency form the bedrock of a circular economy.


Recycling quality is currently already an important topic and will become more critical in the coming years as we go towards a circular economy as a society. As a topic, it deserves more attention, as a clear definition helps determine what goes well and what does not. This definition of recycling quality should take both the system and the material perspective into account within the boundaries of a circular economy. 

Measuring quality means you can improve it. Taking a step toward a more data-driven recycling process means taking further steps toward Recycling 2.0 and a circular economy.

IPCC report


Do you want to work on a solution tackling climate change ❓

There is ‘high confidence’ that the recent growth in emissions is driven by waste management according the new IPCC report. In earlier reports, the energy-intensive production processes of plastic were already identified as main causes of climate change. Recycling is the solution replacing these energy-intensive production processes in plastic.

The recent IPCC report increases the need to tackle climate change. At Veridis, we use science & technology to solve one of the main causes. Our MADSCAN technology is a crucial step in the availability of recycled plastics. It allows quality control for the highest quality at sufficient quantity in recycled materials.
