The German waste plastics market:
Still no improvement in August

21 Sep 2020 − 

The state of Germany’s waste plastics market has not improved in August.

Demand picked up a little, but this sometimes came at the cost of prices as suppliers had to make minor concessions. As the summer holidays drew to a close, plastic converters were making more enquiries as primary plastic had become a little more expensive again. Some companies still had workers out on furlough or on short time working, and recyclers were often operating below average capacity utilisation rates.

This is an excerpt from EUWID's monthly report on the German waste plastics market. The EUWID Price Watch Waste Plastics for August together with the complete report were published in EUWID Packaging Markets 19/2020.
