EU: Characterisation for recycled PE-LD pellets

28 June 2018

Plastic Recyclers Europe (PRE) and VKC-CENTEXBEL have collaborated on the elaboration characterisation of recycled PE-LD pellets, which provides a framework for the quality assessment of the pellets. It aims at enhancing demand for recycled plastics by providing standardized methods to evaluate quality.
Ton Emans, PRE President & PE-LD Working Group Chairman, said: “Setting a scientifically grounded benchmark for quality of recycled PE-LD pellets is the first step towards plastic circularity as conceived by the Plastic Strategy. Clear and transparent standards give greater confidence in the value of recyclates and thus enhance demand for recycled plastic" (Press Release PRE, 19 June 2018).
