Within the scope of the study, the Witzenhausen-Institut developed already in 2011 the different scenarios for the so-called "Yellow Bin", which is still valid. Therebye the authors built up on the results of the Witzenhausen study I "Treatment and Recycling of Waste Streams Rich in Plastics" which presents and evaluates the current state in collection, treatment and recovery of material streams rich in plastic. In the second study, the Witzenhausener experts come to the conclusion, that the Yellow Bin is on principle suitable to increase the mechanical recycling and energetic recovery, however at upcoming limits.
