What are European Recycled LDPE price assessments?
Platts Recycled LDPE assessments complement our existing virgin LDPE assessments in Northwest Europe, providing market participants with a more complete view of the LDPE market and enabling them to compare market fundamentals and pricing.
Platts assesses recycled LDPE black, grey and translucent pellets derived from post-consumer waste with a melt flow index between 0.3 and 1.2 grams/10 minutes tested at 190 degrees Celsius/2.16kg, suitable for consumer packaging applications in Northwest Europe.
Prices are assessed daily for delivered duty paid material in EUR/mt.
Price assessments are complemented by a weekly commentary and rationale, which explains how the price assessment is reached and delves into the market fundamentals observed throughout the week.
