Not everybode knows that household waste processing, including plastic bottles (and other tableware) can generate income. However, it is considered that during the next 20-30 years any business based on waste and salvage processing will be the most perspective. This opinion is based on the fact that: plastic has such qualities as lightness, profitability, and its production is not expensive, obviously raw materials will always be available to business. Besides, secondary processing of plastic products begins to develop, and therefore the state is ready to support businessmen in this sphere in every possible way.
Utilization of plastic bottles assumes their processing for the purpose of reuse or other materials production. The technology is not difficult and assumes the following stages:
- Collecting and sorting. This stage means organization of plastic acceptance places, special ballot boxes establishment for the purpose of raw materials sorting process simplification and the agreements conclusion with dumps.
- Crushing. This agreement preparation stage is carried out with use of rotor crushers therefore receive the flakes of a certain size named by PAT-flex.
- Cleaning. The crushed waste comes to the jet washer, cleaning is making in stages, using the special washing mixes, for example, caustic soda. Then carry out separation from the washed-out mass of paper stickers in the special centrifuge. Polypropylene labels and covers are deleted with flotation. After that, flex repeatedly is washed with usual water and moved to the dryer.
- Agglomeration. The sintering of crumbs into small lumps is carried out at this stage.
- Granulation. It is the final stage of salvage preparation for further processing. During granulation process material condense, transform from plastic lumps to grains of specific size that facilitates further processing. Granulate is used for making packing, construction details, film and many other.
Thus, plastic bottles processing is useful not only in terms of ecology, but also financially profitable. Correctly built business on container processing will allow to gain stable and high income and at the same time improve an ecological situation.
