EFS Plastics has developed a brand-new line of products called Nuera using Recycled Low-Density Polyethylene (R-LDPE). The production facility is situated in Hazelton, Pennsylvania.

Nuera LDPE, according to EFS-plastics, is only made from the best-sorted post-consumer LDPE resources because it is meant for high-end applications with customers. Nuera delivers a clean appearance for its R-LDPE, resembling that of virgin material with low gel counts and little impurity, as the company asserts that it seeks to maximize post-consumer LDPE use in flexible packaging through close industry collaboration.

According to EFS-plastics, a data tracing system ensures transparency at the individual raw material source level to produce Nuera LDPE (R-LDPE).

R-LDPE is widely used to make piping, sheeting, films, trash bags, and other products for composite lumber, building, agricultural, and other industries.

The product's market is attracted by its lower production cost and low energy requirements during processing. When compared to R-LDPE, virgin LDPE processing necessitates more energy.

Due to regulations that target specific LDPE film applications and promises made by some brand owners and converters to use recycled LDPE in the face of an oversupply of virgin resin and concerns about the quality of post-consumer resin, the R-LDPE resin market in North America is particularly active.

Martin Vogt, president and CEO of EFS-plastics, calls Nuera "truly more than just another post-consumer resin." He stated that a comprehensive system and cooperative strategy are created to close the current supply-demand gap and deliver a high-quality product.

The market intelligence team at ChemAnalyst says that for a variety of reasons, several U.S. downstream businesses are switching from virgin Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) to Recycled Low-Density Polyethylene (R-LDPE). As demand for this product increases and the price of upstream crude oil is anticipated to rise, the R-LDPE prices, which are currently almost stable, are expected to expand by 2.3% in the upcoming month and by 1.3% in April 2023.
