A German recycling company is looking for an innovative sorting technology for multilayer trays
Since January 2019 the new packing directive on packing and packing waste (2018/852 L 150/ pp141 14.06.2018) replaced the existing rules and focused on quantitative more recycling and reuse of waste.
According published statistics by the German environmental agency 46 % of the plastic waste were recycled. The majority of the plastic waste has been converted in energy in incinerators. That small share of recycled plastic waste is caused by high challenges in the recycling of multilayer packaging (mixed plastic fractions).
That challenges might be overcome by chemical recycling. That why the company is active in the development of a chemical recycling process. In preparation for that process a sorting technology is sought, which is able to group mixed postconsumer multilayer trays in following fractions:
PE/PA - Polyethylen (PE), Polyamide (PA)
PET/PE- Polyethylenterephthalat (PET)/ Polyethylen (PE),
PET/PA Polyethylenterephthalat (PET)/ Polyamide (PA).
The development engineers for the sorting process machinery are sought for a commercial agreement with technical assistance to realize this sorting requirements. The potential partner should be able to accompany the introduction and implementation of the expected solution under real conditions.
