Recycling plastics – Resource efficiency How Are Aluminium Cans Recycled? | How Do They 1 day 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 needs to be sort out in every country❤❤❤

não entendi nada que foi faladado, mas as maquinas são muito legais.

Can we fine something like this in any African Country? My homeland Ghana is in GREAT need of a recycling plant like this because the whole country has been taken over by waste especially plastics.

One of the coolest videos I've ever seen. What an amazing plastic factory

Fkin plastic, worst thing ever
I like how in 9:50 they act like they have a conversation.

That's use only plastic it's poisoning

All this trash and organic can be refined into fuel by smoldering the trash in containment condensing the smoke into crude creosote oils that can be refined into fuel to further fund the cleaning project creating a funded new form of employment with profits...

It seems terribly inefficient to me to make a bottle out of a different bottle. Perhaps a set of specific forms should be designed and enployed so that the durable bottles appearing at recycling facilities can be sorted out and reused as-is. Does my windex bottle really need to be melted down and reformed in order to fill it again?
Bash That Trash
I wish I got this many views.
What if there was a re-using facility paired up with our recycling facilities that we send not bent up plastic materials like containers from flame broiler to be washed and re-used or sold?

My name is Volodymyr. I live in Ukraine in a small village. I'm just a mechanic who lives and works in my village. I see in your video a good life in Austria. I am very glad how other
Austrias live, and how bad we live in Ukraine, and especially in villages. In our village there is a large three-floor school and a primary care clinic. Perhaps there are organizations that throw away old laptops, printers, or monitors in your place. Well, things that they already do not need, but they can still work fine. I have seen such videos on the Internet as companies throw away laptops, and other working office equipment in processing. I looked at the video and thought that we do not have such laptops and printers at the school for children and in the hospital. Our school and hospital are, but not enough. You can find out if there is such an organization that plans to dispose of working equipment again. Maybe they could send it to my village in Ukraine for schoolchildren and to the hospital, but only for free? If it is not difficult for you to ask such organizations, ask them. You will do a good job.Maybe someone will read this message differently and would like to help our school. I do not incline you to anything, I just ask, maybe among you there are people who know who is old, but the computer equipment that you or them is no longer needed, but it is fully operational. You can send it to Ukraine in my village, in school for students, so as not to throw it into a trash can. P.S. I just want to somehow help my village, and especially schoolchildren. Therefore, I appeal to people with more opportunities than me.

What a useless invention, why don't you use a cheaper way to make something useful. There is so many ways you can recycle plastic without this expensive way to make a plastic bottls

How Are Aluminium Cans Recycled? | How Do They Recycling plastics – Resource efficiency 1 day ago   07:46

The world consumes a mind blowing 4 billion cans of soft drinks made of recycled aluminium every week. DCODE how they are recycled.
