Bio-Based HDPE Resins
Bio-based HDPE resin, in which some components are sourced from biological materials such as sugar cane residue or similar materials, is fully compatible with petroleum-based HDPE in the recycling process. Bio-based HDPE should not be confused with HDPE containing bio- or oxo-degradable additives.
Postconsumer polyolefin content
The use of postconsumer HDPE in all packages is encouraged to the maximum amount technically and economically feasible.
REQUIRES TEST RESULTS
Blends of HDPE and other resins designed to enhance properties in the intended first use with unknown residual effects in future uses of the recovered resin.
