LDPE industrial films
LDPE films account for the largest part of the goods we trade. The films are generally provided to mechanical recycling.
Generally, the LDPE film bales undergo just a brief visual check before processing. The straps are cut open, and the bale is transported into a coarse shredder via an ascending conveyor. Only after shredding, magnetic separation and perhaps non-ferrous metal separation is conducted in order to protect the downstream machinery.
For this reason, a strict pre-sorting and mono-fraction collection are very important. The shredded film fragments are ground into fine particles and subsequently washed and dried or fed dryly into the extruder depending on the processing technology. At about 200°C, the material becomes a viscous mass which is pressed through a fine-meshed screen which removes slight impurities. This way, (re)granulate is formed. These high-quality regranulates are used for the production of refuse bags, carrier bags and agricultural films. This results in a significant reduction of CO2-emissions as compared to the utilisation of virgin plastic and incineration of the secondary material.
The processing is conducted according to the EC Transfrontier Shipment of Waste Regulation (No 1013/2006), recovery operation R3.
