In Germany post-consumer PET bottles increased in March

April 06/2012
(polyestertime) -- As expected, the prices for post-consumer PET bottles from deposit systems increased substantially in Germany during March.

Many market observers say the development is unhealthy, considering that prices for primary PET are no longer climbing, and might even fall in April.

Increasingly, the gap between recycled and primary PET prices was narrowing, insiders said. Regranulate would soon have to cost more than primary material due to the high bottle bale prices, and things would also get difficult for the production of flakes, market observers commented.

But flakes buyers had already signalled to recyclers that they would not accept anything more than a price roll-over in April. PET processors were now being cautious in their buying and covering only their absolute minimum requirements.
