Recycling plastics – Resource efficiency 2 days ago   15:52

VDI Zentrum Ressourceneffizienz
In Germany alone, two and a half million tons of plastic packaging land in the yellow trash can. German households pre-sort their garbage into four separate trash cans; yellow for plastics, brown for compost; blue for paper and black for non-recyclables. Since the various plastics are very difficult to separate from one another, most of the material is utilized for energy.

The new film from VDI Resource Efficiency Center, Recycling plastics – Resource efficiency with an optimized sorting method depicts an improved sorting and processing method for valuable plastics, bringing the plastics life cycle full circle.

MEILO, a company in Gernsheim located in southern Hesse, sorts plastic trash from the yellow barrels in 30 repetitive sorting processes until the maximal purity of variety has been attained. Plastics are first separated according to size and then subjected to an air separator. In the following step, a near infrared scanner scans the plastics on the conveyor belt as they pass, communicating to a compressed air jet at the end of the conveyor belt which plastics are recyclable. Finally, the compressed air jet blows these material aside. Thus, varying plastics are sorted by an up to 98% purity of variety. In addition to the three major valuable plastics, HPDE, PP and PET, four other well-recyclable plastic varieties are gleaned from the river of trash.

At Systec Plastics GmbH in Eisfeld, Thuringia, the plastics sorted by MEILO GmbH are further processed to produce a premium commodity for the plastics industry. Here, plastics are shredded and cleansed. Repeated circuits beneath a near LED scanner sort the plastic flakes according to color before they are melted and once more filtered. The 99% pure granules are then filled into containers and transported.

Werner & Mertz GmbH, manufacturing laundry detergents and cleaning supplies, uses Systec Plastics GmbH granules to produce their packaging bottles. The granules are easily processed in Werner & Mertz GmbH’s standard production plants in Mainz. Their HDPE bottles and PP twist-off lids are made of 100% recycled plastics from the yellow trash can. Their PET bottles are composed of 20% recycled PET from yellow trash cans and 80% recycled plastic from deposit bottles.

The plastic life cycle comes full circle, the raw materials are recovered.

This is the solution to plastic waste, and many others. Eco friendly, no dioxin release, energy efficient, use only water

what if i tell u....


plastic can turn back into fuel....

Instead of sorting plastic based on Colors they might add colour additives which will turn unsorted item into required colour

Use machine Learning AI and others high tech AI robots to sort waste! Problem solve!

The best recycling would be when one goes to buy a new product. One should go with the old packaging in order to buy a new one. If one doesn't have the old packaging then he must pay 4 times it's normal price.
This would make the people NOT to throw away the plastic and it will be almost no need for any recycling to take place. The recycling will consist in washing up the existing packaging and then refilling it with the product
All products will have the same format characteristics but each different company could add it's own logo to the exterior of the package.

Why don't we do that?

Would be better off to have a yard to take your plastic and get paid for it like I do with my cans and other metals then more people would recycle plastic and it would be sorted better to start with.

We are interested in this machine in India. How much price

On the up side: ?
On the down side: It makes the switch to biodegradable packaging harder. It makes pollution more affordable. It creates its own industrial pollutants.

i need your help I have lubricated pehd plastics . I want to make it is oil disappear when I washing by machine

at the end. lmao , why not just rise and reuse? Pay someone 8 dollars a hour to wash it off. LMAO all that work bro.,.. lmao~

Simple solution to recycling......
1/. Each type of plastic is allocated it’s own colour
2/. Cap and bottle must be the same type of plastic
3/. Labels must be water soluble and use water soluble glue
4/. Public educated to separate plastic from other materials I.e. take plastic cap off metal tube.
5/. Heavy penalties on non-conformance

With all those steps, the infrastructure supporting the plastic recycling procedure seems highly expensive, all that for only 10% of the initial waste to be recycled. Compare that with the simplicity of producing new plastic direct from crude oil... Companies will purchase cheaper option. Only solution is to set quotas on plastic use, tax when exceeded & promote renewable resource consumption & cut world population & promote packaging free supermarkets. Literally was in Paris today, temperature 43 degrees celcius. Blame incineration

how does can one person get plastics recycled, where are the contactees...?

This video forgets to mention some significant problems with recycled plastics. Plastics can't be recycled indefinitely because the properties break down each time it is reformed. Anti oxidents are added to it when the original granules are made and these are used up each time it is heated/reformed. In the PE pipe industry only 30% recycled can be used with 70% new material. Maybe one day  the properties of recycled materials can be restored to make recycling 100% efficient instead of the blending that happens today.

After watching couple of how its made videos its baffling that garbage factory is 100 times cleaner then food processing factory :O
