Plastic products are one of the most common products that humans deal with in their daily life to meet their needs and uses.
Plastic products have many advantages including:
Light weight, relatively long lifespan, safety of some types for food preservation, human health, shape-ability, coloring, durability and transparency.
After using the plastic products we need to get rid of them in a safe and non-polluting environment.
Here, the utmost importance of plastic recycling as the best environmentally suitable solution for the disposal of plastic products consumed, and also re-use of these products after recycling and turn them into crude enters once again in the appropriate industries.
We first know which plastics can be recycled:
1 – High Density Polyethylene
It is symbolized by HDPE
2 Low Density Polyethylene
It is symbolized by LDPE
3 – Polyethylene Trephthalate Polyethylene Terephthalate
It is symbolized by PET
Symbolized by the symbol PP
5 Polyvinyl Chloride
It is symbolized by PVC
6 – Polystyrene Polystyrene
It is symbolized by the symbol PS
Plastic recycling is done in several stages
Where plastic materials are to be recycled. Here, the importance of community awareness of the collection of these plastic materials through specific collection stations.
Some methods have been successful in encouraging people to collect plastic products through machines where the citizen puts the plastic bottle and gets money for it, as well as the large collection boxes marked with plastic labels.
Plastic collected for recycling is divided into different types on a case-by-case basis.
The importance of this phase of plastic recycling is that the different types of plastic can not be processed together, because each type of plastic has its own characteristics which impose various processing conditions of one type in the plastic recycling process.
The milling phase:
Where the plastic is broken into small particles that enable plastic recycling process in an easy and secure manner.
It is a necessary stage for plastic after its separation and cracking in order to eliminate any contaminants.
In order to ensure the purity of the material to be reused.
It is intended to dry the plastic after the washing stage.
The stage of milling (granulation):
At this stage, we obtain the recycled and ready-made plastic granules for entry into different suitable industries.
We at El Safwa follow the recycling operations of the raw materials we export to our customers to ensure that the recycling process is carried out according to the scientific methods and specifications required to produce the best recycled materials.
We pride ourselves on exporting the best recycled raw materials to many international markets and gaining the trust of our customers in dealing with us and in the raw materials we export.
