Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic made from ethylene monomer.
It was the first class of polyethylene, manufactured in 1933 by Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI) using a high-pressure process through free radical polymerization. Its production uses the same method today.
EPA estimates 5.7% of LDPE (recycling number 4) is recycled.
Despite competition from more modern polymers, LDPE continues to be an important plastic class.
In 2013, the worldwide LDPE market reached a volume of approximately $ 33 billion.
