The German waste plastics market:
Noticeable uptick in uncertainty

19 Jul 2018 − 

There is a noticeable uptick in uncertainty on the waste plastics market in Germany.

Now that Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia have basically stopped accepting most waste plastics, sellers are desperately looking for sales opportunities in European countries.

Even deliveries of regranulate to China, which had got off to a good start in recent months, appear to be stalling.

Recyclers who had been selling black LDPE regranulate to China are now noticeably more reticent because Chinese authorities are classifying black regranulate as "waste”.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German waste plastics market. The EUWID Price Watch Waste Plastics for June together with the complete report will be published in EUWID Packaging Markets 15/2018.
