Plastic is becoming more and more of an issue these days, where protecting the environment and creating a sustainable lifestyle are the order of the day and a generally declared development objective.
“Plastic – and, in particular, the recycling thereof – is becoming more and more of an issue these days, where protecting the environment and creating a sustainable lifestyle are the order of the day and a generally declared development objective."
Dedicated to the above, Mr Malay Patel and Mr Parth Pansuriya decided to establish a company whose main goal was to make the plastic recycling process more efficient. As such, their futureoriented and family-owned company, Placity Recycling, was established in September 2018.
The main aim of this young company is to regulate the type of material which is blocked at one point or another in the recycling process of a particular polymer. In addition, the company also helps to recover materials which are mixed together, such as HDPE, PET, PVC, PP, PE or other polymers.
A SEA HYPERSORT electronic sorter is used extensively to minimize impurities and other foreign polymers from the main product. It has always been a challenge to separate different polymers that have the same colour, as the polymers cannot then be separated visually. This is the main reason for the development of HYPERSORT, which represents a state-of-the-art solution in plastic flake sorting. This sorter plays a pivotal role in separating all HDPE, PVC, PET or other polymers. All these materials can be recycled in order to conform to the purity standards required in the market today.
Mr Malay Patel, who is a young visionary, visited the CIMBRIA SEA factory in Imola two times with different sets of samples that were processed by HYPERSORT with an advanced NIR Hyperspectral camera to produce a digital bio-fingerprint. HYPERSORT L delivered successful test results conforming to industry purity standards, as a result of which an order was placed.
Cimbria is proud to contribute to a reduction in the need for disposal of valuable materials – or indeed the need for disposal of them at all. This will benefit not only Placity Recycling, but also the city of Rajkot, the state of Gujarat – and indeed the planet as a whole.
“Based on our extensive experience in sensor-based sorting technology, Cimbria is able to present the new SEA HYPERSORT series of machines, specially designed for plastic flake sorting. SEA HYPERSORT technology strengthens Cimbria’s leading role in the recycling industry worldwide, where several SEA colour sorters are installed for added value processes and to make the recycling of different polymers possible. The separation of different polymers that have the same colour has always been a challenge in dry processing, as the polymers cannot be distinguished visually. Now, thanks to SEA HYPERSORT, all PET, PVC, PE, PP, PS, HDPE or other polymers can be recycled in order to conform to the purity standards required in the market today.”
