Regeneration refers to the process in which the plastic is regenerated into new plastic, which can be used as a new raw material in the plastics industry, often on an equal footing with virgin plastic. In this process, the shredded plastic is cleaned and mixed, additives are added and then the plastic is melt filtered and pelletized to a new raw material.
Regeneration with Gneuss filter
In order to meet the market’s wish to recycle very challenging types of plastic with higher quality, we have added a filter on one of our extrusion lines. This allows us to process highly polluting plastic to a greater degree than was technically feasible previously. The Gneuss filter ensures that the contaminants are filtered out, so that the raw material/granules once again become a clean product that can be recycled again and again. Watch the short film
