The world's first recycling line for agricultural plastic waste nets has been successfully started up by RecyOuest. The company handles the recycling of contaminated filamentary thermoplastics such as round bale nets and twines.
The innovative recycling line from international technology group Andritz AG, Graz/Austria, featuring a unique dry-cleaning system was delivered, installed and commissioned in August 2022. It can process up to 8,000 tons of waste and produce recycling fibers for nonwovens applications and also for pellets made of waste from agricultural single-use plastic nets and twines. These pellets are then returned to the plastics industry by mixing both recycled and virgin raw materials, thus reducing the amount of virgin plastic used.
The line, inspired by the techniques from textile wastes recycling, is equipped with a unique mechanical dry-cleaning system that allows resource savings by avoiding the use of water and chemicals. This state-of-the-art equipment allows RecyOuest SAS, Argentan/France, to produce recycling fibers for nonwovens applications and also pellets for new eco-designed nets and twines for the agricultural sector, with a low environmental impact.
