New plant equipeed with Pellenc ST machines in Italy AKRON Plant, Granarolo dell’Emilia, Italy PST has recently installed 3 machines of its latest range of products to sort different types of plastics in a multi-layer materials stream from the curbside collection. The Mistral Dual Vision machines combine the spectroscopic detection of materials and colours. Detection is refined to the point of being able to create families of materials by combining the resin types and colour. The recognition of plastics by colour, as well as of different materials such as paper, cardboard, plastics, beverage cartons, is possible in just one passage thanks to Mistral Dual Vision technology and the 2G software. With this project, Pellenc consolidates its presence in Italy since 13 years.
Pellenc ST is a partner of Veolia and LERM for CDW Recycling / Life + With its expertise in the optical sorting of waste, Pellenc ST has initiated this project with Veolia and LERM. The CDW Recycling project is co-financed by the European Commission under the LIFE + program. Objectives The project aims to use innovative technologies to solve problems that currently limit the recycling and reuse of building materials and demolition. A pilot plant will be integrated into the sorting of construction waste at Veolia Nice to sort materials 8-30 mm and 30-80 mm on an industrial scale. To do this, Pellenc ST will integrate its Mistral High Resolution optical sorting Machine with NIR technology to sort small fractions. Additional tests on the site will help refine validation settings and process specifications. The new process should demonstrate that it is possible to recover large number of construction and demolition waste, with less impact on the environment compared to traditional management of this type of waste through the production of a fraction CSR (Combustible Solid Waste) and produce a fraction of plaster which can be recovered.
