Recycle bin plastic process  in Germany , what kind of plastic can be recycled?

Today we will talk about Germany for recycling and the procedure may be different for each country. Millions of packages in Germany are easily squeezed out and feel empty when they are useless.

As a result, 2.5 million tons of packaging waste is collected every year. It ends up in a yellow bag or yellow box.

And from there How does a sorting plant work?



The problem is that different types of plastics are difficult to distinguish from one another.

That is why most of the waste is used for energy recovery. In traditional power plants, empty energy packaging is burned, for example in the steel or cement industries.

How do recycling machines work?

In a large machine hall, the waste flows in the first stage on a two and a half kilometre long conveyor belt, the machine falls into a large rotating sieve. Here the different packaging and other materials are sorted according to size.

The small pieces fall easily through the holes, the other two are carried into the extra drum. Finally, five separate streams are created, consisting of materials of different sizes.



Sorting content by size makes the process of sorting much easier. In a special air separator, an explosion of air blows light material. Air separators and other machines remove most of the foil from the material stream.

This makes sorting difficult plastics easier.

The better the plastic is arranged, the better it can later be used to make high quality products.

In one more step, another scanner quickly scans for plastic types. The air pressure can then push the bottle cap out.

Then comes PET and finally



 HDPE configured according to material flow.


 Despite the automatic sorting process, pre-arranged material flows are then hand-picked.

The most useful plastic on the strip.



Everything from old shoes to pieces of wood

Intended for energy recovery. This type of plastic is pressed into lumps. The purity level in HDPEPP and PT lumps is 94 to 98%.




In this plastics processing industry, after the secondary raw material, this sequence seeks to dispose of plastics.



Plant and Hutchinson companies and supplies to Germany and neighboring countries. HDPE bottles, for example, are used to make pipes or special pallets.



 PP plugs often turn into flower pots or






 And PET packaging is converted into wool sweaters or fibers used in stylish lawn furniture.



But even if the furniture looks great, and the sweater is comfortable, there is only a limited age within the substance recycling of this type of product. The manufacture of these products may save on raw materials such as oil, but at some point, they too will fall into a pile of dirt or waste material in a waste-burning plant. Has gone



This means that one bottle is made into another bottle. Different parts of the molded plastic need further processing.



 They still have to be solved according to color.



 If they had melted, they would have turned a dirty gray.



 Base color sorting is done in a special sorting.



 Special mechanics allow the machine to disassemble a single mass on a large scale



 An explosion of air removes unwanted colors



 And the last repetition on the last one.




The result is 800 kg of configured HDPE flakes per hour. The material in one is melted at 220 degrees Celsius. The melt is pressed through a filter and then purified, then the liquefied plastic is cooled and processed into grains. The result is a high quality raw material that is put to use almost everywhere in the plastics industry. In addition, HDPE packaging polypropylene or PP caps are also sorted through these extensive cleaning, sorting and processing steps.



Every year, about 20,000 tons of material is processed from the yellow sack here and I spell



But only a small part can cure it completely.



Productivity is expected to increase in the future, and this process needs to be further improved. Events are important for the purpose that we can already take the plastic from the yellow bag and turn it into plastic.



We now plan to move into areas related to the food industry. We will start with cosmetics and then move on to food in some places.



 We think it will take a few years and that's it

After all, our plastic will be so healthy that an ice-filled photophobia recycling material has already been ordered by the manufacturer. At its location and at the mines, Wana and Mang's company produces more than 130,000 tons of foam and scented detergents.



 Usually, the packaging ends in a yellow bag.



To complete the material cycle, the company tries to use as much plastic as possible from the yellow bag to make its bottles. The HDP granulate from the ice field is fed into a machine here. It is then melted in a special stove. The bottles are formed under air pressure. After that, the extra material is cut and the bottles are ready.



Although these bottles were made using only plastic bags from yellow bags, no standard production facility can produce them, after all, HDPE bottles are filled as usual and five and a half million each year Bottles are delivered to stores.



 One PP cap to one PP cap



 And one PT bottle from another PT bottle



Which preserves the roll material and energy used in the manufacture of plastics. So far only yellow bags have been made and part of the packaging has been recycled. But experience shows that plastic from yellow bags



 Can be used in a material cycle.



 And no matter how unstable the shot is, at least one bottle of it is more.
