Plastic PRN price jumps back up again pushing up material price


Recycled plastic grades such as LDPE film and PP that had fallen in value the week before, jumped back up last week on the back of stronger PRN prices.

Both were up by £10 per tonne with the PRNs set to hit £70 a tonne again this week after losing £25 two weeks ago, according to last week’s Intelligence.


Confusion continues to reign over the paper market and the impact of the rise of the paper PRN and it seems to have contributed in making the price stable.

Most metal grades were stable last week apart from aluminium which suffered a £20 to £25 fall.
