We produce flexible packaging and use various polymers.
Till now we used virgin polymers (granulate) only, and now we are thinking to use also some "recycled material".
The definition of "recycled material" according to BRCGS is quite strict: "Material that has been reprocessed from recovered material, including postconsumer or post-industrial waste ..."
The problem is that in our case the postconsumer waste was chemically recycled (split down to molecules) - i.e. it does have the same properties as a virgin materials (incl. food grade).
It seems to me that in this case it would be not appropriate to change a bunch of documents and integrate this as a "recycled material" in the processes...
Did someone have an experience with such a situation?
Many thanks in advance!
