Purity matters – in the recycling industry


Resource scarcity, environmental degradation, and climate change demand a new approach to sustainable business. The solution is a circular economy in which waste is repurposed as a valuable raw material. For profitable recycling, material purity is essential.

Our intelligent technologies and services help recycling companies to profitably produce secondary raw materials of the highest quality. Material cycles are closed.

Sustainability, environmental protection, and profit go hand in hand.


Circular Economy – It must turn a profit

Our resources are limited, so the importance of recycling continues to grow. Nearly one in two trading and consumer goods companies depend on the availability of raw materials and see recycling as a way to achieve greater sustainability. Recycled materials are turned into new products that can be manufactured in a cost-effective, resource-friendly and eco-friendly manner.

Many materials can be recycled to create new, high-quality products. However, the purity of the material is crucial to efficient recycling. Our detection, separation and sorting systems remove contaminants and separate mixed material flows into homogeneous, unmixed fractions. By doing so, they facilitate a high degree of material quality and profitable recycling. Material analysis systems can be used to precisely determine the purity of plastic flakes.

With our versatile range of equipment, we can install detection, separation, or sorting equipment at precisely the process stage where it can make the biggest impact on product quality, plant availability, and material recovery rates. All from a single source!



What benefits do sorting systems provide?

Higher material quality and greater added value: In order to recycle glass and metal economically, the recyclable material that is collected must have a high degree of purity. Our separation and sorting systems precisely remove contaminants and separate material flows into homogeneous, unmixed fractions. Recycling rates of up to 100 per cent are possible with our systems for applications that involve recycling used glass and some plastics.

What materials are sorted?

Our systems sort the following materials, among others:

  • Plastics: polyethylene terephthalate (PET), high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), engineering plastics, mixed plastics and bioplastics
  • Glass: flat and container glass, special glass types (e.g. heat-resistant glass, leaded glass, display glass, solar panels, etc.)
  • Scrap: automotive scrap, scrap metal, electrical/electronic waste
  • Other materials: household waste, wood

 

What can we do for you?

Sesotec has been one of the market leaders in the field of contaminant removal and sorting technology for more than 40 years. We develop standard solutions as well as complete custom solutions for recycling companies. Sesotec covers the entire range of contaminant removal and material flow sorting, which extends from a sorting system designed to handle larger objects to one that focuses on the delicate task of removing small particles. Through innovative sensors, such as high-resolution cameras, metal detectors and smart software solutions, we help you to manufacture products in top quality with maximum output and to avoid wasting resources. Our machines boast the highest degree of detection accuracy, function reliably over many years and are easy to operate, clean and maintain.




Sesotec is partner of Blue Competence

As an internationally operating company in the fields of product inspection and recycling technology, we see it as our social responsibility to commit ourselves to the careful use of resources and environmental protection.

This is why we are a partner in the Blue Competence sustainability initiative (www.bluecompetence.net).

Blue Competence is an initiative of the VDMA (www.vdma.org) to promote sustainability in mechanical and plant engineering, but also to make sustainable solutions known to the industry. With our partnership, we commit ourselves to adhering to the 12 sustainability principles of mechanical and plant engineering (www.bluecompetence.net/about).

White Paper

The circular economy: Challenges and opportunities for Recyclers and plastics processors

The plastics industry is under pressure. Between climate change, excessive consumption of finite resources, and vast amounts of plastic waste in the world’s oceans, plastics are coming to be seen in a different light by politicians, businesses, and consumers alike. Read in our e-book about the most important factors of a functioning circular economy, especially which challenges and opportunities exist for recyclers and plastics processors.

Reiling Plastic Recycling will do whatever it takes to produce the purest flakes
Reiling is prepared to fulfill this need, offering an entire range of services from collection (full service or DIY), to processing (converting bottles to flakes), to creating carefully controlled end products. For those who will eventually buy the flakes, color and material purity are of central importance, as high-quality starting materials are needed to manufacture new products.
