High Density PolyEthylene (HDPE) is a thermoplastic prepared from ethylene by a catalytic
process. The global market for HDPE in 2007 is around 30 million tons.
HDPE is a very commonly recycled type of plastic and
is well accepted in most recycling centers.
HDPE are used toward blow-molded containers such as milk jugs, juice containers,
detergent bottles, motor oil bottles, trash bins, etc.
That is nearly one third of HDPE’s annual production worldwide.
