Solutions for metal separation and plastics sorting
pure plastic without contaminats
The processing of plastics, whether in granules or flakes, requires knowledge and technology to achieve good results.
The presence of metal contaminants such as ferrous, aluminium and steel in the plastics often complicates the work.
How should you proceed if you have plastic contaminated by other polymers of a different colour and chemical type?
Our job is stay close to the companies in order to find together the most effective and simple solutions to process plastics and to obtain a quality and contamination-free product.
Technological development always increase the use of recycled plastics, often at a lower cost than virgin plastics. With the recycling of plasticssuch as PET, HDPE, PVC, PC, PP, PE, etc., plastic waste is significantly reduced and the envferrousment is protected, and 100% recycled products can be obtained.
But how to deal with the problem of separating contaminats such as metal and how to sort the various plastics by colour and type? Who to rely on?
The process of separating contaminants and sorting plastics are topics for which we have the right solutions, experience, skills and machines.
Plastics, a wealth to be saved
the numbers of plastics
World production of plastic has increased from 15 million tonnes in 1964 to over 350 million as of January 2018. It is the low cost and abundance of plastic, combined with poor waste management, that has meant that plastic has quickly become a nuisance and dangerous contamination. Every year at least 8 million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans and, so far, it is estimated that there are more than 150 million tonnes of plastic in the oceans (2018 figures).
