Legislative change and customer demand in the plastics recycling industry has led to the set up of a laboratory to test polymer feedstock.Plastics company Axion Recycling said that the REACH legislation (a recent European Community regulation on chemicals and their safe use) and the Waste Framework Directive means customers need to identify the polymers they handle.
