Details of the Innovation Need

We are looking for a test method for rapid examination of ingredients of high concern in post-consumer recycled resin materials (PCR). Aim of a test method should be to make a quick and cheap assessment whether a PCR is safe to be used as packaging material in consumer goods or not. The simplicity of the test should allow to measure lot to lot variability in everyday packaging material production, i.e. allow a real-time screening of potential consumer hazards on ppm level.
