Südpack enters the joint project with Recenso for films recycling

Südpack enters the joint project with Recenso for films recycling

News 02.10.2020

Maximum product protection, which means maximum consumer protection, makes the use of laminated films essential. These films are composed of multiple layers of different polymers and ensure, among other things, a long shelf life and low packaging weight. Unfortunately, traditional mechanical recycling has its limitations in dealing with these materials. As a result, this valuable packaging cannot be made part of a closed loop.

The engineers of RECENSO have developed a process that also makes it possible to convert mixed plastic fractions into a liquid and universally usable hydrocarbon mixture, which can then be reused by the chemical industry as raw material for producing plastics of the highest quality. The innovative plants for direct oiling work according to the CARBOLIQ process and are unique in the world. An industrial-scale pilot plant was created at the waste management center in Ennigerloh. “The design complies with international standards for industrial applications and is used for the testing and further development of chemical recycling in Germany,” explained Christian Haupts, Managing Partner of RECENSO GmbH in Remscheid.

The collaboration that was recently concluded between the two leaders in technology, SÜDPACK and RECENSO, now aims to convert production-related reusable materials into high-quality pyrolysis oil on an industrial scale. The produced pyrolysis oil will be supplied to the plastics industry as raw material for producing high-quality granules of virgin-grade quality. The goal is to use this material for producing product packaging in industries with high quality and hygiene standards, such as the food and medical product industries.

Dirk Hardow, who is responsible for the collaborative project at SÜDPACK, views the investment in the innovative project “as an initial pioneering step as a manufacturer of high-performance composite materials to making a significant contribution to a functioning circular economy in the plastic packaging industry. Chemical recycling makes it possible to meet the ambitious recycling rates of the EU strategy for plastics and of the German Packaging Act – and allows us to support our customers in meeting current and future market needs. SÜDPACK is playing a pioneering role in the area and will further strengthen this innovation through investments in the future as well.”

Plastic products made from chemically recycled material can be recycled again after use. The more often chemical recycling is performed (with material that has already been chemically recycled), the more CO2 is saved that would have otherwise been produced in the refining of crude oil as a resource and the incineration of the plastics after use. Last but not least, chemical recycling makes a particular contribution to closing loops and reducing greenhouse gases in the packaging industry.
