Recycled plastic is an important raw material for the manufacturing of new products. But how much does a tonne of waste plastic cost on the market right now? EUWID tracks the prices on the German market for polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) regrind. Demand for waste plastics is shaped not only by market conditions, but also by the public opinion about the use of plastics in general. It is with this in mind, that EUWID Recycling and Waste Management not only reports on market movements, but also closely tracks the political debate on take-back schemes, recycling rate targets and recycled material requirements and on market developments for both reusable and single-use packaging.
