English term or phrase: recycled starting material
Complete combustion of the waste products and respective impurities adhering to the recycled starting material.

The question is: does the expression "recycled material" is the material "just being recycled" or "already recycled" (previously)?
kgas
Polish translation:already recycled (previously)
Explanation:
I would say that the sentence means that the material has already been recycled before it was used and is to be combusted now.

To be exact, JUST BEING RECYCLED sentence would go like this:

Complete combustion of the waste products and respective impurities adhering to the STARTING MATERIAL BEING RECYCLED.
or
...STARTING MATERIAL SUBJECT TO RECYCLING.
However, only thorough examination of the context would reveal what the author really meant.
