Using the MDS, the whole plastic chain can be made more efficient. An Umincorp plant receives plastic waste in object form directly from waste processors and municipalities. We use the Magnetic Density Separation technique to process this waste, but in addition we are realising shredding, washing and cutting processes before the materials enter the MDS installation. This enables savings on both transportation costs and CO2 emissions. The dropout rate - the percentage of plastic waste that is still unsuitable for reuse after processing - is also considerably lower than the 40 percent in conventional recycling processes.
MDS lowers the costs of the plastic recycling chain
The end product of our MDS is of such high quality and purity that it can be used as an alternative to virgin (new) plastic. We sell flakes HDPE, PP, PS and PET to the market, so please contact us if you are interested.
PP HDPE PS PET
The high polymer purity of MDS sorted flake products enhances the consistency of rheological and mechanical properties over time. And based on cusomer requirements, we can convert the flakes to a wide variety of coloured compounds.
From Q3 2019 we have available from our plant in Amsterdam (PRA):
