Portugal takes two NGR recycling plants

Austria / Portugal – Austria’s Next Generation Recycling Machinery (NGR) has installed its first two recycling plants in Portugal.

Esmeriz-based Plasmeriz is processing film edge strips with an E: GRAN 50 AP designed for in-line operation with a throughput of 5 to 50 kg per hour. And the S: GRAN 85 V HD supplied to Silvex of Benavente is a modular plant suitable for difficult-to-grind materials which now no longer require additional pre-grinding.

At the heart of the latter machine is a patented shredder/single-screw extruder combination which is claimed to deal with almost any material without additional handling in a process known as NGR One-Step technology. Silvex can now process both HDPE and LD/LLDPE film; furthermore, the extrusion process allows it to handle biodegradable plastics.
