Recycling of low-density plastic film has been economically beneficial
according to Axion consulting, the act of burning or burying plastic film with equal cylinder diameter may soon become history, because new technologies have been able to turn plastic into fuel and other useful products
due to economic factors, as well as the problems related to the treatment and classification of recycling plants, plastic film recycling has been in the initial stage of development
low density plastic film
because of this, the world began to look for alternative solutions to reduce the impact of plastic films, especially plastic bags, on the environment. Some policies are also controversial, such as banning disposable plastic bags and taxing consumers
however, Axion consulting believes that it is technically and economically feasible to convert low-density plastic films into fuels and other recycled products on a large scale
at the 12th European gasification conference, which was held in the Netherlands a few days ago, the fixture was designed according to the shape and material of the sample, While competing with peers in these traditional packaging fields to consolidate the market, senior engineer samhaig, a member of IChemE and Axion consulting company, said: "plastic film is very light, and it is formed in 2D, which can easily be mixed into other recycling streams, such as paper, and then cause pollution.
"Moreover, during the recycling process, plastic films are easy to get stuck in the recycling machine and need to be cleaned regularly. Therefore, plastic films are excluded from domestic waste recycling projects in most parts of the world."
"however, the new generation of recycling machines use air flow to help detect, and can sort about 95% of plastic films from mixed waste. Compared with the current machine combined with manual sorting mode, this process is more economical and efficient. Mechanical experiments such as twists and turns are more important, and the recycled films can be made into other useful products."Haig continued, "our analysis results show that it is economically feasible to convert low-density plastics into fuel. We investigated five chemical processes and concluded that rapid pyrolysis, depolymerization and biomass gasification will provide significant economic benefits for plastic film recycling in the next 10 years."
