Quality of pellets

23/07/2017 at 21:38

Hello everyone!

I want to start recycling plastic bottle caps into HDPE pellets and i wonder if i will create shredder and extrusion and then cut it into pellets will it be enought for industrial usage? I mean it will be enought good quality that someone will buy it from me? I saw many specialized production lines got cleaning, washing etc, but these caps are usually very clean.

My idea is to start small local caps recycling company which gives her profit into charity, near my city (150k population) recycling market is dead

Enjoy machine builders!

The industry can be picky when it comes to buying recycled plastic. However we are working on setting up an online marketplace where you can sell you plastic to other Precious Plastic members. If I lived around I would be more then happy to buy from you! Love HDPE 🙂

I’m currently building the machines needed and gave a small workshop too work from. My aim is to shredd hdpe only to begin with but keep the colours separate.
