PET is short for Polyethylene Terephthalate, the chemical name for Polyester.
PET is completely recyclable, and is the most recycled plastic in the world and is growing its market share compared to other polymers; such as PS (Polystyrene) and PVC.
PET is widely used for packaged foods and beverages. It is also popular for packaging a wide range of consumer and industrial products. It is becoming the world’s preferred packaging material. In addition, it is used for fibrefill for clothing, construction material and protective packaging.
RECYCLED PET PRODUCTS MARKET
There is a global revolution in plastics recycling. The initiatives in Europe are unprecedented and is carrying over to North America. The EU adopted new directives requiring single-use plastics products to incorporate 25 to 50% recycled content.
Large Brand owners have made long-term SUSTAINABILITY commitments to reduce the environmental footprint of plastics used globally. They are requiring their suppliers to use more recycled materials in products. This is leading to an increase for recycled PET.
The North American collection rates are too low to meet projected demand. There’s not enough collected to fill all the needs. Consequently, the growing demand will require more and more imported materials.
