HDPE Recycling

HDPE is an easily recyclable polymer, however, today only around 300.000 tonnes of HDPE bottles are being recycled annually in Europe. This represents only 10% to 15% of the HDPE waste generated in Europe. This situation can be rectified by addressing the following aspects:

  • collection rates increase,
  • ecodesign for HDPE products available on the market,
  • automaticity & technological improvements in recycling.
