Plastics

Magnetic Density Separation (MDS) technology can be used for a wide range of industries, where separation makes the difference.

Household packaging plastics is 40-60% of all plastics in the world and the composition with HDPE, PP, PET, and PS of this mix is the perfect match for our MDS technology. 

Plastics

The largest MDS application for polymers is rigid packaging waste, and the polyolefin fraction in particular. Our highly accurate sorting process can double the recovery rate of rigid plastics from packaging waste and can separate the mixed plastics into PP, several PEs, PET and PS products at a lower cost and higher selectivity than state-of-the-art Near Infra-Red (NIR) sensing and ejection technologies.

Flakes


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.

The high polymer purity of MDS sorted flake products enhances the consistency of rheological and mechanical properties over time. And based on customer requirements, we can convert the flakes to a wide variety of colored compounds.


From Q3 2019 we have available from our plant in Amsterdam (PRA):

Allowing the recycling of packaging polymers to become economically more attractive and at the same time reduce the pressure on plastic manufacturers that have difficulty sourcing sufficient volumes of secondary polymers with consistent quality.
