What is granulate / regranulate?

Plastic granules (granulate) are the basic product from which plastic products are made. New plastics are usually supplied to processors in the form of granules. Regranulate refers to recycled plastic from production waste. IMPORTANT: Regranulates should not be confused with recyclates. Unlike regranulates, recyclates come from post-consumer waste, i.e. plastic that has already passed through one complete ‘life cycle’.
