We have made a significant investment and installed an automatic optical sorting plant for plastic packaging waste arriving from municipal waste stream.
The technology was installed in one of the halls (3200 m2) of our plant in Sírkert utca, Budapest. The input capacity of the system is 2 tones/hour of bulk plastic packaging waste.
After manual selection of films and contamination the automatic sorting line sorts PET bottles HDPE/PP hollow bodies by the plastic type and color. We grind the bottles to flakes and transfer the flakes to the washing plant.
For accomplishing the project our company received a HUF 50 million EU support through the KMOP-2008-1.2.1/B tender.
