An important area of focus for RCS is the recycling of PET bottles to produce plastic flakes for a variety of applications and high-quality regranulate for the food sector. This activity is centered at its sorting plant, where it separates clear PET from color PET – which account for 85% of the input – aluminum and ferrous cans, film and other materials. With a capacity of 7 tonnes/hour, the plant operates on a continuous shift system, processing used PET bottles into high-quality food grade plastic flakes.
The purity of the flakes is of paramount importance, as they are destined to the production of a variety of plastic products, from plastic fibers to films and packaging tapes, as well as products for the food industry. Every outgoing Big Bag is carefully checked for residual moisture, bulk density, incorrect colors and contaminants, as well as grain size distribution and adhesive residues to ensure the high quality of the output.
