Our UK Recycling Processes
There are 6 major steps in our UK Recycling process:
The plastic flakes are put into bays and blended to customer requirement & specification
Label and Lid removal
Labels and lids are separated on the top of the water via water rollers.
The plastic is kept in the hot tank with a percentage of caustic for a period of time.
The PET flakes goes into high-speed friction washer, which reduces the plastic moisture content.
Our State-of-the-art Metal detection process makes sure we are eliminating metals for the PET flakes
The PET flakes are dried which further reduces the moisture content in the flakes to less than 1% Moisture
