What are US Recycled PET price assessments?
Platts recycled polyethylene terephthalate assessments cover the following markets in the Midwest and West Coast regions of the United States:
• Post-consumer PET bottle bales: FOB LA Premium-grade
• Post-consumer PET bottle bales: FOB LA Curbside
• Post-consumer PET bottle bales: FOB Chicago Curbside

The above markets are assessed on a daily basis in cents/lb for spot material loading 0-7 days forward from the day of publication for bottle bales and for spot material loading 3-30 days forward for clear flakes.
The daily assessments are also converted to $/mt.
Platts assessments are based on market information, including, but not limited to, firm bids and offers, and trades reported to the editor up to the close of business (4:00 pm Central Standard Time).
