SOREMA Division of Previero N. SRL announces the achievement of all qualitative and quantitative parameters at the start-up of the PET post-consumer bottle washing and recycling plant at Commercial Plastics Co. - CPC in Yangon, Myanmar (Burma).


Andrea Villa, Senior Technical and Sales Engineer of SOREMA, introduced, “After conducting a wash and recycle trial on the plant at our Recycling Research Center - RRC in Alzate Brianza with CPC collected dirty bottles, we developed the parameters to design a 2,200 kg/h flakes output plant, which would make their material able to be reused to produce soft drink bottles again.”


The material test, conducted at SOREMA's RRC laboratory, has verified that most of the local market collection consists of small-format bottles between 330 cc (mL) and 1000 cc (mL) with a high-level contamination from PVC labels, sand, and abrasive materials.


PET soft drink bottle recycling plant in Myanmar uses SOREMA's technology.

"Based on this analysis of the material to be processed, SOREMA thanks its robust and efficient design, has developed and manufactured a line BtoB for South East Asia, which features a series of customizations to be considered as standard throughout all South East Asia PET bottles recyclers,” Villa continued.


SOREMA stated that the machines have been carefully built with the high-quality components, starting from the pre-washing module for removing labels and for optimal cleaning of the material surface. This technology prepares the material for a better sorting of the bottles and reduces the overall wear the whole line and without compromising the lifespan of the delabeler, which has an expectation of its first maintenance only after several months.


Subsequently, efficient removal of PVC labels is achieved with a combination of delabeler, wet elutriator and material detectors. This technology achieves high standards required by major brand owners for their rPET.


Because the SEA market is quickly evolving from PVC to PP labels, the company underlines the importance of SOREMA's technology, that removes with high efficiency the glue of the labels. It has also paid particular attention to the possible wear conditions due to local collection where the level of sand in the input bales is elevated.
