EuPR to increase HDPE recycling

April 26/2012
(polyestertime) -- EuPR, the Brussels-based organisation representing Europes plastics recyclers, has developed new guidelines for HDPE bottles with the aim of increasing HDPE recycling.

According to Christian-Yves Crepet, EuPR HDPE working group chairman: "HDPE is a very easily recyclable material. But only 300,000 tonnes of HDPE bottles are being recycled annually in Europe just 10% to 15% of the total HDPE waste stream. "

However, according to Crepet this situation can be rectified by addressing various areas such as "an increase in the collection rates, the design of HDPE products put on the market and the technological improvements made by recyclers".

"The various actors of the HDPE value chain must now cooperate in order to get HDPE on the path to sustainability," explained Crepet. And in order to help facilitate this that the organisation has produced its HDPE recycling guidelines.
