REMONDIS invests in soft plastics pelletising unit – Australia

Posted on April 22, 2023 by DrRossH in Plastic Recycling


REMONDIS Australia has bought a soft plastics pelletising unit that converts old plastics to pellets that can be used as feed-stock in making new plastic materials.

At maximum operation the unit is capable of producing up to 5,000 tonnes of pellets per year that can be sold locally and internationally for low density polyethylene and other plastics making. 

“This equipment is the epitome of circular economy recycling. What goes in the unit comes out in purest-form pellets that can be used to make new similar products, which is a notch above lesser recycling equipment where pellets are down-cycled and be used to make lower grade products. 

“This particular unit is unique because its multiple filtration process removes several contaminants. The unit also comprises triple degassing, allowing highest possible removal of volatiles, thereby producing pure and ready-to-use pellets at the end of the process.’’ 

This is a good step for a circular economy for recycling back to high quality pellets.
