1st Test at industrial scale implementing EXTRUCLEAN technology.

2016-12-19

The project has demonstrated the effectiveness of the new technology for decontamination of hazardous plastic waste at pilot plant scale, being up to a 70% more effective than the traditional decontamination processes.

During the first half of the project, EXTRUCLEAN technology was set at pilot plant level and the decontamination process was optimized using polyethylene jerricans contaminated in a controlled way with simulant liquids representative of the different contaminants in hazardous plastic waste. In the second half, implementation of the EXTRUCLEAN technology at industrial scale has been carried out and the start-up of the new recycling line was performed at ACTECO facilities. This will enable to obtain the new recycled PE at industrial scale for the production of jerricans for hazardous substances in the beginning of 2017.
