Platts European Recycled Polypropylene Weekly Commentary

  • Recyclers broaden search for feedstock
  • Recyclers seek flakes to top up lack of bales


Supply tightness continued in the European recycled polypropylene market in the week ended Dec. 1.


Buyers asking for additional volumes or approaching new suppliers were across the board being turned down as both natural pellets and black pellets were short.

The tightness in the pellet market has led to soaring bales prices and for recyclers to tap into alternative waste streams beyond PP bottles and tubs.

PP cloth waste, to be extruded into pellets, was heard trading as high as Eur800/mt DDP NWE, while black flakes were heard offered to recyclers for extrusion at Eur1,100/mt DDP NWE.

At the high end of the market, R-PP natural pellets held firm at Eur1,775/mt DDP NWE, though with talk of limited supply. Some recyclers were heard to be withdrawing offers from the market so as not to entice new business.

Platts European Recycled Polypropylene Weekly Rationale

S&P Global Platts assessed black recycled polypropylene pellets at Eur1,225/mt DDP NWE Dec. 1, stable on the day and on the week, below a seller indication heard at Eur1,250/mt and above an ex works Poland offer for material with an MFI 20-30g/10 mins heard at Eur1,200/mt, considering the addition of truck costs to Northwest Europe.


Natural pellets were assessed at Eur1,775/mt DDP NWE, stable on the day and on the week, within a seller range heard at Eur1,750-1,800/mt, considering strong demand and maintaining a stable premium over black pellets.
