The Present and Future of PET PCR in Brazil

In recent years, post-consumer recycled PET (PCR) has increased in value, significantly and positively changing the economic scenario of PET recycling in Brazil. The most recent census published by ABIPET, the Brazilian PET Industry Association shows that the amount of collected post-consumer PET returned to the level of 2014, above 300 thousand tons annually.
Also according to the census, the large volumes of post-consumer PET have recyclables traders who acquire the material from collectors. Thus, when the price of post-consumer PET scrap is appreciated, it increases the incentive for the collection of this material by these collectors, boosting recycling and the bottle-to-bottle process in the country.

For example, it is common for a material to be recyclable but not recycled.
