-Finding the Right Melt Filtration System for Post-Consumer Recycling

To achieve high-quality pellets at the end of the recycling process, chose filtration technology based on both the input materials as well as the performance requirements of the finished material.

Melt filters are a critical component in plastics recycling systems as they remove contaminants such as paper, cardboard, wood, rubber, aluminum or even foreign plastics from the stream. To achieve high-quality pellets at the end of the recycling process, the right filtration technology should be chosen based on both the input materials as well as the performance requirements of the finished pellets.

-Prices Bottom Out for PE & PP? Up for PS, Flat-to-Down for PVC & PET

Drivers include parity with global prices, ample supplies and higher raw material costs in some instances.

By the end of the first full week of 2020, it appeared that prices of both polyethylene and polypropylene may be bottoming out, with domestic prices generally in parity with global polyolefin prices. Crude oil prices moved higher in the first week of January amid escalating tensions in the Mideast, which helped feed into international market sentiment that PE and PP prices had reached a bottom.Chemicals Biodegradable Polyamide Film

-Axion urges recycled polymers market collaboration

Collaboration between plastic recyclers and injection moulders/manufacturers is key to creating new end markets for recycled polymers, according to Axion Polymers.

With more manufacturers looking to increase recycled content, the UK-based plastics recycler suggests this presents opportunities for alternatives to virgin material.

At Axion’s two processing sites, recovered plastics and waste electrical goods are refined into high-quality engineering polymers that match virgin quality. The bespoke recycled Axpoly and Axplas polymers can be tailored to specifications for use in a range of new products.Chemicals Biodegradable Polyamide Film
