Mechanical recycling of plastics

Plastics recycling is including several steps and operation in the value chain of waste management to ready recycled material. The waste must be collected, sorted, grinded, washed and decontaminated as well as possible before entering the melt extrusion and filtering to produce a homogenised new granulate.

Norner have facilities for simulating the recycling extrusion process and devolatilising of the material as well as dedicated small scale extruder for quality assessments. The produced material can be further tested and assessed in our processing pilots, chemical analysis, migration and odour as well as physical properties.
