Plastics have been an essential part of our daily lives for many decades. Whether in medicine, the food sector or automotive industry, the easy processing and application abilities of polymers over other materials means that they are represented in a wide range of sectors.
Packaging materials such as films, primarily made of polyethylene (LDPE, LLDPE) and polypropylene (PP), have a particularly short product life cycle and also account for a significant portion of waste, worldwide at a total share of around 40%.
Due to such a high volume of waste, there is a demand for efficient recycling solutions for film fractions and as pioneers in plastics recycling, Lindner knows what the recycling and circular economy wants: higher throughputs, short downtimes and maximum energy efficiency.
Lindner offers all-in-one solutions to efficiently optimise these steps to process rigid plastics, films and PET.
Lindner have brought another shredding solution to the market , the latest in the Jupiter series the Jupiter BW.
It’s a shredding solution that has a shredder set-up specially tailored to film recycling and makes significant quality optimisation a reality right from the first process step – the shredding.
After bale opening, the films are precisely cut to a A4/A3 size. Due to the continuous film size achieved in this way, downstream NIR systems are able to work within the optimum operating point, to detect materials in a more targeted manner and assign them to the correct material stream.
Stefan Scheiflinger-Ehrenwerth, Head of Product Management at Lindner Recyclingtech emphasises,
‘Thanks to the new Jupiter BW model, we have succeeded in adapting the particle size perfectly to the requirements of the NIR systems. What is particularly remarkable is that with the special shredder set-up we have successfully reduced the proportion of fines that are unusable for the recycler, and which have to be disposed of, by 44%, compared to conventional machines. We achieve this through a gently slow-running but powerful shredding operation with special control parameters,’
Lindner is one of the few manufacturers to offer all-in-one solutions for recycling
