The German used disposable PET bottles market:
Supply situation improves slightly for recyclers in June

12 Jul 2021 − 

With warmer weather in June, the supply situation improved slightly for recyclers of PET beverage bottles in Germany.

In recent weeks, the higher temperatures have led to an uptick in arisings of post-consumer bottles from deposit systems. After a "catastrophic May,” recyclers are now somewhat more optimistic again. With the further easing of restrictions in the events and hospitality sectors and better weather, supply could rise significantly again in the coming weeks, EUWID was told.

At the same time, though, the ongoing high demand for flakes and regranulate means purchasing bottles is challenging for recyclers. A handful of PET recyclers either did not receive the expected shipments of contracted volumes or they were unwilling to pay the high prices being charged on the spot market.

⇒ This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German market for used disposable PET bottles. The EUWID Price Watch for June together with the complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 14/2021.
