The German used disposable PET bottles market:
Difficult situation for recyclers continued in December

18 Jan 2021 − 

The year 2020 ended on a relatively calm note for PET recyclers in Germany.

As expected, arisings of waste bottles declined in December. Some plants took a longer break over the holidays, while others continued production with barely any interruption. Demand was decent, reported most market participants. Yet this has not changed the difficult market situation for recyclers.

Yet this has not changed the difficult market situation for recyclers. They still complain that purchase prices for post-consumer bottles are far too high, while recyclate prices are under pressure due to inexpensive primary PET.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German market for used disposable PET bottles. The EUWID Price Watch for December together with the complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 2/2021.
