Plastic Recycling

We are specialized in the recycling of PET, PE HD and PP packaging waste.

In 2011, about 37,000 tons of CO2 emissions could be saved due to the application of our recyclates with our customers.

State-of-the-art technology and processes guarantee the high purity and quality of our recyclates. Thus, our recyclates form the foundations for the manufacture of new products.

MultiPet prepares PET waste as a base material for recyclates according to a very special procedure. An advanced, state-of-the-art facility is in place that produces high quality PET flakes from a yearly input of several thousand tons of PET waste. The pre-sorted plastic waste material is first resorted, ground and intensively washed. The material is then separated from foreign matter by means of a special density separation procedure. After drying, plastic recyclate material (flakes) is produced in varying colours and qualities, which provide the basis for new products.

With Multiport, packaging waste from PE HD (polyethylene of high density) and PP (polypropylene) is the base material for the produced recyclates, which are manufactured on approved and optimized equipments, reaching a capacity of thousands of tons per year.

The plastic waste is mainly pressed and delivered in bales. The bales are brocken up and checked on impurities. Thereby, remaining impurities or foreign material which might disrupt the processing are removed, if necessary. Following to this, regrind is made by means of a multi-stage milling process and several washing, cleaning and separation steps follow. The clean plastic regrind is then dried mechanically. Now, the plastic regrind can already be used in the plastics industry as replacement for virgin material. The main part of our regrind is then processed on three extrusion lines to regranulates. With special mixtures we produce individual regranulates in order to provide specific material properties required by the customer.

On the entire premises waste water is collected and then puryfied in the on-site water treatment. Afterwards it flows back into the process. Only water which is discharged with the waste or which is vaporised in the drying has to be replaced.
