Besides this, they may also be required to meet various other demands, such as being chemically neutral, or able to withstand freezer, oven and microwave temperatures. PE and PET are the leading substrates used in rigid plastic packaging. PE is the leading polymer overall while PET leads in applications for bottled water, carbonated soft drinks and fruit juice. PET gained share by material type in the rigid packaging sector over the review period and is forecast to become the leading rigid plastic container resin type by 2012.

Although some recyclers were unconvinced, claiming that the tests failed to simulate real operating conditions, the results were defended by Plastics Forming Enterprises LLC, which carried out the tests, who claimed that PLA could be effectively sorted and recycled under normal recycling conditions in a commercial facility using their described techniques.
