What are the best practices for plastics operations that process recycled materials? The use of recycled material with unknown contamination implies a dryer lifespan reduction of up to 50%, additional maintenance cost, and process instability. Processors must ensure constant quality and traceability of the system; and at the same time, must strive to reduce contaminants and optimize energy.
This webinar addresses all aspects of auxiliary system applications for handling recycled materials, examines best practices of system design, as well as provides a complete overview of the technologies for handling materials to get the best results with minimum scrap rate.

Primary Topics:

  • The role of plastic
  • Working with recycled materials: main variables and constraints
  • Piovan Group recycling technologies
  • A recycling case history
