Although plastics have been used on a larger scale for more than 100 years, they are, in contrast to metals, glass or paper, only very hesitantly perceived as valuable materials that are worth recycling. Too often, plastic products end up after use in a landfill or in an incineration plant.
At this year’s Plastic Recycling Show Europe (PRSE) Virtual conference held on December 9-11, the Plastics Recycling Awards Europe named MAS (Maschinen-und Anlagenbau Schulz GMBH) and Caroda BV Polymers the winners of the Recycling Machinery Innovation Award of the Year.
MAS an Important Part in PET-Recycling Investment Plans of Cumapol, CuRe & Coca-Cola European Partners
Cumapol, a very good MAS customer, operating with MAS Extruders to recycle & compound PET Bottle flakes and MAS lab-Extruders for product and process development, founded together with a partner a new company called CuRe Technology B.V. Now, CuRe Technology B.V. just signed a contract with Coca Cola to push circular economy .
BENEFITS: High-quality recycled resin. A cascade extrusion line provides more effective degassing for more homogeneous material density. The package can boost recycling line throughput by 40 to 50 percent and is especially effective at processing PE film flakes.
In terms of the machine technology used, Kaskada relies predominantly on systems manufactured by Austrian manufacturers. Their different treatment concepts lead to different results. However, the highest quality in comparison comes from the MAS cascade extrusion line based on the co-rotating conical twin-screw extruder as the central component.
