NOTHING IS WASTED IN OUR INNOVATIVE WASTE-PROCESSING SOLUTIONS
Many countries have shown a growing interest in the impact of plastic on the environment, as millions of tons of plastic waste are accumulating in landfills and polluting our oceans. The minimization of plastic waste and reuse of plastic materials is currently an important topic around the world.
To be successful in the plastic recycling industry in the long term, recyclers today must not only recycle with maximum efficiency, they must also meet strict requirements – especially when it comes to recycled plastic for food packaging.
Well thought out recycling solutions make your total investment more profitable while securing valuable market access – whether they are for flake, fiber or food-safe material. For the latter, particularly high requirements need to be taken into account to meet international standards.
Rieckermann is familiar with the latest recycling trends and provides customized process solutions. We include local technical support and cost-effective, locally sourced parts combined with premium European core components.
Concept & design
Whether you are already in the recycling business and want to expand capacity, the quality of the recycled plastic or the degree of automation, or you are planning to enter this very interesting but also competitive market, we can take care of each step of your project.
Our support includes feasibility studies to make your investment safe and the complete design of your recycling plant. Our team will help you develop the right concept for your requirements and different applications for the recycled plastic to be successful in this exciting and fast-growing industry.
Rieckermann’s recycling solutions for in-house and post-consumer plastic waste can support the desired goal of reducing the amount of unrecycled plastic waste, while increasing your profits along each step of the recycling chain.
PLASTIC RECYLING SOLUTIONS
With the goal of achieving cost-effectiveness, Rieckermann can help you design a dedicated process that is adapted to the material quality available and demands of the raw material market.
Sieving, sifting & shredding
Ferrous & non-ferrous separation
NIR (Near infrared)
MIR (Mid-wavelength infrared)
XRF (X-ray fluorescence)
XRT (X-ray transmission)
Eddy current separation
Floating, (friction-) washing & process water treatment
Conveying, packaging & baling
EPS (Expanded polystyrene)
WEEE (Waste electrical & electronic equipment)
ASR (Automotive shredder residue)
PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)
Black plastic sorting
RDF (Refuse -derived fuel) production
For materials with higher complexity, a more sophisticated process is required. If mechanical processes are not sufficient to recover recyclables, the residues will be broken to the molecular level – either through chemical or thermal decomposition.
