Reprocessing of waste plastics

Reprocessing of waste plastics

  • Project Date:Dec 2019
  • Location:Teesside, UK
  • Categories:Manufature, Recycled materials

The new line required was for a major manufacturer in Teesside. It would allow them to process their waste onsite and massively reduce the carbon footprint of transporting it to another UK site. The new line would shred, separate and check the opaque quality before a secondary shred from 6mm to dust and then bag.

In this case, the waste was recycled polyethylene terephthalate (Rpet). The company would produce over 25 tons per month, which was not the required quality due to the process.


The specification of the machine and its processes was to treat between 1.5t and 2t per hour and use, where possible, recovered energy to make the process more sustainable.

  • Max process of 2T per hour
  • 6mm to dust output
  • Opaque reading of + 85%
  • Bagged in 25Kg bags for client

The machine was installed in a purpose-built facility next to the plastic producer and could take numerous roll-on, roll-off 40’ containers. The breaking preprocess enabled the 1st stage shred to be fed at the required throughput.

  • Concept line created and validated with client
  • 5 year contract for reprocessing agreed
  • Option to install IoT going forward
