The article reports that plastic converters in Europe are finding antidumping duties on polyethylene terephthalate burdensome. According to the author, unlike converters, plastic producers may welcome the extension of the antidumping duties for another five years. The author stated that European Plastic Converters sense injustice regarding the extension, particularly as up to eighty percent of converters' costs are linked to feedstock prices.
