PE recycling accelerates circular economy


Plastics Recyclers Europe has published a paper identifying the prerequisites for increasing recycling of flexible polyethylene into a high-quality raw material while ensuring a sustainable and cost-effective process.

With the converters’ demand of around nine million tonnes, LLDPE/LDPE is the second biggest resin processed in the EU and consequently demonstrates a high recycling potential. However, today’s recycling rate of this resin is at the level of around 31per cent due to higher targets and higher quality hampered by challenges.
