Asian Recycled LDPE Weekly Commentary

  • Product quality fluctuations hinder trade
  • Lack of scrap in market to recycle


Asian recycled low density polyethylene prices were stable Dec. 8 due to the year-end lull.


Southeast Asia mainly imports recycled scrap from the US, Australia and Japan, but the recent freight issues and country-specific waste export bans had made it difficult for Southeast Asian recyclers to obtain fresh scrap, sources said.

There was no color standardization for the natural recycled color, and two samples with similar lab readings could look visually different, sources said. This represented processing problems, compounders said.

Traders said due to the freight issues and increasing virgin polymer costs, recyclers had been trying to index recycled resin to virgin polymer prices instead of a freely traded market price.

Asian Recycled HDPE Daily Rationale

Asian recycled low density polyethylene clear film pellets were assessed unchanged day on day at $990/mt FOB Southeast Asia Dec. 9 in thin trade.
