Plastic recycling

Requirements for plastic processing

The recovery of single-type plastics and other recyclable materials is an ever greater and more important challenge for the processing industry.


Through intensive research and development work, we always offer you the latest in sorting technology. The areas of application in plastics sorting are often very different. For example, hollow bodies (PET, HDPE, PP, etc.), foils (LDPE, PP, etc.) and biodegradable plastics can be efficiently recovered; chlorine-containing compounds (PVC), plastics with flame retardants, paper, wood and metals can be effectively eliminated.

We plan, manufacture, deliver and assemble plastic sorting plants with the latest know-how and are happy to provide you with our expertise.

Sorting of:
  • Household waste
  • Commercial waste
  • Electronic waste
  • RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel)
  • Construction waste
  • Flakes
Recovering of:
  • Hollow bodies (PET, HDPE, PP, etc.)
  • Films/foils (LDPE, PP, etc.)
  • Biodegradable plastics
Rejecting of:
  • Chlorine-containing compounds (PVC)
  • Plastics with flame retardants
  • Paper and wood
  • Metals

The REDWAVE sorting machine is an integral part and the final stage of our comprehensive sorting line for plastic waste from municipal collection. The focus here is on the quantity and quality of the sorted raw material – PET bottles. Modifying the original manual sorting line allowed us to optimise the sorting process, reduce operating costs and increase capacity. REDWAVE met the required specifications and expectations. After this positive experience, our company opted for REDWAVE again and for another sorting line in Zvolen.

Our partners worldwide:

I opted for REDWAVE when converting the lightweight packaging sorting system because REDWAVE has proven its great planning excellence. The task was quickly identified during the on-site visit and implemented exactly according to our wishes. Changes and ideas in the 3D layout were integrated quickly, easily and professionally in our plant; special solutions were found, and challenges were mastered. Furthermore, the REDWAVE 3-way sorting machine and the return of material to a split machine offered the possibility of saving two sorting machines in the process. For what others need four sorting machines, we only need two with the same efficiency. This of course saves costs; not just in terms of purchase costs!
