RECYCLING: Technology to recycle all type of plastics without using water.

08. November 2018 | Plastics, Waste | via Science X

According to an article on phys.org, the technology developed by Marco Adame, founder of Ak Inovex, can process more than 90 percent of any type of plastic, avoids water waste and reduces production costs by half without reducing the quality of the pellets (small beads of recycled plastic) by avoiding stages with severe changes in temperature.

 

The advantage of this technology is its ability to process any type of plastic, such as styrofoam, polystyrene, PET and ABS; the difference lies in the mechanism, because there is a special piece for each type of material. The production capacity of plastic beads is two tons and the team is currently working on increasing it to ten.
