Sustainability of Recycled HDPE
Easily recyclable, HDPE can be used repeatedly and replaces the usage of virgin resin and expensive colorants. According to the EPA data, recycled plastics account for far less environmental impact than their virgin counterparts.
According to a Franklin Associates Report on Life Cycle Inventory Analysis of Recycled Resins, July 2010, the resources consumed to produce one pound of recycled resin are:
The report also shows that production of recycled resin uses 90% less energy and emits 78% less greenhouse gases than virgin resin.
