The recycling company CALEX S.R.L. installed a Starlinger recycling line for post-consumer film in Romania. For the owners, who also operate a recycling site in Austria, this is already the seventh line supplied by Starlinger recycling technology.

At CALEX, approx. 600-700 tons of plastic waste is recycled each month. In July, the company installed a plastics recycling line type recoSTAR dynamic 105 C-VAC supplied by Starlinger recycling technology.

CALEX operates two Starlinger recycling lines type recoSTAR dynamic 105 C-VAC: One line processes big bags, the other line recycles colored, transparent and highly printed LDPE packaging films.

During extrusion, the high ink content and the residual moisture after the washing process on the upstream washing lines can lead to the increased formation of gases. With the setup consisting of SMART feeder, continuous melt filter and C-VAC degassing module, both lines are well prepared for these challenges.

Through densification and homogenization of the material and the resulting friction, the SMART feeder has a drying effect, and after removal of the residual contamination by the melt filter, the melt surface is increased by 300% in the C-VAC module, thereby allowing for the efficient extraction of gases.

Despite the current recycling boom, the quantity recycled at CALEX remains largely constant. As factors that could contribute to an increase in input quantities, Managing Director Gheorghe Campan identifies the focus of manufacturers on the recyclability of their products (design for recycling) and EU requirements for a minimum proportion of recycled material in new products.

Moreover, an increase in the currently fairly low prices for virgin plastics would favor the use of recycled materials.
