The plastics recycling company based near Istanbul, Türkiye, commissioned its new Starlinger recoSTAR PET 215 iV+ bottle-to-bottle recycling system in the last quarter of 2023.

The PET bottle-to-bottle line is the second plastics recycling system from Starlinger that Tanrıkulu has installed. It is in operation at Tanrıkulu’s post-consumer PET processing plant in Akyazı, Sakarya Province, in Türkiye’s Marmara Region. The recycling system processes post-consumer PET bottle flakes and has a production output of 2.4 tons per hour. Tanrıkulu supplies the bottle-grade rPET pellets to customers in Turkey and abroad.

The recoSTAR PET 215 iV+ recycling line is equipped with a special cartridge filter that reduces production waste, increases the production output and ensures highly purified melt. The backflush melt filter system called DPC 4000 operates continuously with two screen-bearing pistons and four screen cavities. With a total of approx. 4000 cm², the filtration area is 2.4 times larger than when using standard screens, filtering the melt with a fineness of 56 μm. Another big advantage is the high process stabilization as 75% of the filtration area is available in the filtration process during screen change and backflushing. The DPC 4000 cartridge filter significantly reduces melt loss during backflushing and generally improves system performance.

“With our ongoing investments in PET recycling we aim to protect our social, cultural and natural environment for future generations by closing the packaging loop. Every discarded PET bottle should become a new PET bottle again,” said İzzet Tanrıkulu, General Manager of Tanrıkulu Group of Companies. “Starlinger is one of the leading technology suppliers in the field of PET bottle-to-bottle recycling. The Starlinger PET recycling process has been approved by international brand owners in the food and beverage sector as well as by important legal authorities such as FDA and EFSA. We strive to improve the environmental impact of plastic packaging by combining the latest technology with our vast experience in the field of recycling, thereby reducing both plastic waste and resource consumption.”
