China has become a key driver of how to solve problem of plastic waste on a global scale. In 2017, China decided to ban import of 24 types of solid waste, including certain types of plastics, paper and textiles, on the grounds of environmental and health issues. Decision has caused repercussions worldwide.
In order to grasp development of Chinese market in recycling economy, “Abbott Rubber & Plastics Network” conducted an industry survey earlier, learned about industry concerns and opinions. Results show that 86.58% of respondents' companies are now using recycling equipment.
As an industry event rooted in Chinese market and looking at Asia and world, topic and technology of “Circular Economy” has become an important melody of CHINAPLAS 2019.

Gneuss: 50 times more devolatilization performance

Gneuss launched Gneuss Processing Unit recycling machine during CHINAPLAS 2019, with a devolatilization performance approximately 50 times greater than that of a conventional single screw extruder
Gneuss Processing Unit (GPU) has been on the market for several years and has proven to be useful for reprocessing of large quantities of PET waste, such as waste bottle flakes and industrial waste from fiber and film manufacturing without need for pre-drying. A Gneuss Processing Unit consists of a Gneuss MRS extruder with excellent devolatilization and decontamination, combined with an efficient Gneuss rotary filtration system and an online intelligent dynamic viscometer VIS. Since the first “No Objection Letter” issued by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2009, Gneuss recycling process based on MRS extruder has been widely recognized for processing 100% post-consumer and industrial polymer waste into food contact grade products.
Although MRS was originally developed specifically for PET processing, it is now also used in polyolefin and nylon applications, also it is testing other materials and applications. Thanks to patented combination of a single-screw extruder and multi-screw parts, extruder is very strong and particularly suitable for recycling applications.

POLYSTAR: 3-in-1 plastic recycling machine

POLYSTAR (Booth No.: 7.1D21 & 10.1J17) exhibited high-performance Repro-Flex three-in-one plastic recycling machine designed specifically for recycled printed/non-printed PE (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE) and PP packaging plastics. It integrates crushing, extruding and pelletizing units into one, which can effectively solve requirement of pre-crushing and large-area storage space of some plastics. It not only saves energy in operation, but also produces high-quality particles.
In addition to clean waste produced by factory, Repro-Flex can also handle flake waste after washing or even pulverization.
Repro-Flex is especially suitable for blow bag factories, Bag factory, plastic injection and printing factory who can produce food packaging film, all kinds of plastic bags, shrink film, packaging film, agricultural film, PE foam materials, disposable tableware, PP spinning, woven bags, space bags. Repro-Flex not only handles PE and PP plastics, but PE, PS, EVA and even PU-based plastics can be recycled through Repro-Flex.
Through stable feeding combined with hot die cutting system, shape and size of recycled particles are more even, which also makes particles have higher value. It is also better for blow bag factory to add particles back to the production line for recycling and reuse.
