Polyethylene definition

Polyethylene means polyethylene made from polymerization of ethylene at the facility, including all saleable prime and off-grade polyethylene but excluding scrap ethylene.
Polyethylene means a compound typically having the chemical formula of (C2H4)n produced by the polymerization of ethylene and includes, but is not limited to low density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), and high density polyethylene (HDPE);
Polyethylene means polymers comprising greater than50% by weight of units which have been derived from ethylene monomer. This includes polyethylene homopolymers or copolymers (meaning units derived from two or more comonomers).
