We all throw away a lot of plastic, but all types of plastic mixed together. To be able to use this mix again you have to efficiently separate the types of plastic. Common used techniques separate the mix early in their process, recovering 60% of the plastics. So almost half still ends as waste.
As Umincorp we do it differently; we can recover almost 90%, leading to better economics ánd raw materials of very high quality. We separate plastics with an all-in-one plant, near to the source of the waste. The city of Amsterdam already uses our technology to recycle all her post-consumer plastic packaging waste. After removal of all non-plastic items, we shred the mixed plastics into small flakes. These flakes are washed thoroughly.
Then we put them in our Magnetic Density Separator. By using strong magnets and a special fluid we can separate the four types of plastics, in just one process step, Then they are collected separately by type: PP, HDPE, PS, and PET. Ready to become new products again.
The advantage of using our Umincorp process? Low cost, low carbon footprint, highly circular and worldwide applicable.
We are Umincorp! A Holland based company. We sell our process to public and private clients all over the world.
