Starlinger demonstrated a variety of its recycling machines, including the recoSTAR PET 330 iV+, a PET bottle-to-bottle recycling line, at its Open House in Austria in June.
The company showed 200 visitors the recoSTAR PET 330 iV+ line, which the company claims is the biggest PET bottle-to-bottle recycling line of its kind in the world. It has an output of 2,900 kg/h (or 3,600 kg/h for the high capacity version).
Continuum Recycling, the joint venture company formed between Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) and British plastics recycler ECO Plastics, uses a Starlinger recoSTAR PET 330 iV+ HC recycling line to produce the rPET that CCE is using in its PET packaging in the UK.
The Open House was held on the Starlinger factory premises in Weissenbach/Triesting, Lower Austria, on 18 and 19 June.
The Starlinger also demonstrated the recoSTAR universal 165 VAC, which was designed for recycling film, filament, fiber and nonwoven post-industrial and production scrap, and has a throughput of up to 1,300 kg/h.
