With global environmental awareness and the importance of resource recycling coming to the fore, the field of plastics recycling and reclamation is becoming a hot topic. Among them, plastic crushing, cleaning, and plastic pelletizing, as the key links of plastic recycling, are gradually receiving more and more attention. Data shows that global plastics production has grown about 200 times since the 1950s, and the global recycled plastics market reached about $37 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.8% by 2028.
Data from the Plastics Industry Association (PIA) shows that the physical and mechanical properties of recycled plastic pellets produced using the integrated process can be closer to those of virgin plastics, making them widely used in high-demand areas such as food packaging and medical devices.
In addition, rising market demand is also driving the consolidation process, with the global plastic packaging market reaching approximately $900 billion in 2019, according to Grand View Research, and demand for high-quality recycled plastic pellets growing.
The process of plastic shredding, washing, and plastic pelletizing involves several key steps: Firstly, waste plastics are fed into a plastic shredder for pulverization, transforming large plastic waste into small particles. Following this, the cleaning process takes place, where contaminants and impurities are removed through washing and screening, ensuring the cleanliness of the raw material.
Subsequently, the cleaned plastic particles are fed into a plastic pelletizing machine, where they are melted into plastic melt under high temperature and pressure, and then extruded through a die head to form pellets. After the plastic pelletizing process, these recycled plastic pellets can be used in the production of various plastic products, achieving sustainable resource utilization and environmentally friendly recycling.
We are engaged in manufacturing and exporting plastic recycling machinery to all over the world. Waste PP PE LDPE HDPE PS and PET can be recycled by our plastic granulator machine and crushing washing recycling lines.
