Plastic Production Waste Recycling with GEP ECOTECH Shredders

When dealing with production waste, plastic manufacturers traditionally face three choices: dispose of it, sell it, or reuse it. Regardless of the option chosen, some form of reprocessing is usually required. Embracing the circular economy, many processors are now adopting in-house scrap reclaim/reprocessing operations to extract the full potential from their production scrap.

Why Choose In-House Scrap Reclaim?

  • Reduce Reliance on Virgin Plastics: Reclaiming your production waste allows you to decrease dependence on costly virgin plastics.
  • Quality Control: Take charge of your product quality, ensuring it meets your exacting standards instead of relying on a toll processor or purchasing reprocessed material in the open market.
  • Cost Efficiency: Cut down on storage, transportation, and disposal costs while generating additional revenue by processing scrap from other plastics producers.

Shredding: A Vital First Step

Size reduction via shredding is a fundamental initial phase in most reprocessing programs. By reducing the size of the material, shredding minimizes storage space requirements and lowers transport and disposal costs.
