PetroChem Wire: Recycled polypropylene prices higher in July

By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

Recycled CoPP and HoPP pellet prices rose a penny in July, with a high volume supplier selling multiple truckloads of copolymer pellets at 65 cents per pound delivered to Ontario from the Southeast U.S.

In the flake market, spot regrind HoPP black sold as high as 37 cents per pound FOB USEC in July, up a penny from June’s high. Prices for prime spot injection grade HoPP rose from 77 cents per pound at the beginning of July to 79 cents at the end of the month, as some producers reported product shortages. Prime polypropylene contracts, though, were generally reported settled in July at a rollover from June.
