Instead of using new material in plastic processing, recyclates are used to create "second life" products that can be used in a further life cycle.
The re-use of recycled plastic granules requires fewer raw materials and less energy. CO2 emissions are significantly reduced.
A lot of waste is too valuable for thermal recovery or environmental waste. Why not produce high-quality products from recyclates instead with no noticeable loss in quality?
When resources are scarce, the use of recyclates offers greater security of supply. Those who recycle also conserve the natural resource base.
- Transfer of expertise
Do you work with processed plastics? The ARBURG recyclate package consists of hardware and software. A modified cylinder module and wear-resistant screw is also suitable for poorly flowing and abrasive materials.
Fischer dowels from the "Greenline" series are made of alternative plastic and the sprue is recycled inline. The machine is equipped with the recyclate package and RecyclatePilot.
This example of a 2-component lightweight handle shows that post-consumer recyclate (PCR) obtained from household waste can be efficiently processed into durable, high-quality industrial products while conserving resources.
