Amut has completed the commissioning of a recycling plant for Pet Star Recycling, part of Pet Star Group, together with Pet Star Holding, a leading producer of preforms for PET bottles, in Romania. The company developed a customised solution aimed at delivering high performance.
The new washing line fork PET processing with 3,000kg/h total output is equipped with the Amut’s patented De-Labeller together with theFriction Washer, and presents the front-end sorting system sized to sort clear/light blue bottles from a stream including up to 14/15% of coloured ones suitable to treat 5,500kg/h of inlet material.
“From the very beginning, we have implemented the bottle-to-bottle concept to increase the recycling potential of untapped plastic waste and its reuse in a new production process. That’s why we chose a strong partner, as Amut, which provided us modern and innovative sorting and washing technology which allows
us to be more efficient and to minimize water consumption for each kilo of high purity flakes we produce”, declared Mirela Dragoi, CEO Pet Star Recycling, Romania.
