Systalen® rLDPE - recycling material for various applications

Systalen® recyclate granules are suitable for a wide range of applications, e. g. for injection molding, blow molding and extrusion.


In Eisfeld, we produce the following Systalen® LDPE recyclate grades:

  • rLDPE 3.0 (odor-reduced)
  • rLDPE 2.0 (finely filtered)
  • rLDPE 1.0 (standard)

Depending on the application, the manufacturing process of a product and the requirements of our customers, we also offer customized formulations and can supply our Systalen® recyclate in various treatments, forms and compositions.

And different colors are of course no problem. After all, a green world must also be colorful.

Systalen® LDPE Rezyklat

New packaging and products thanks to a closed loop

Closed Loop - Mechanical recycling LDPE

At Systec Plastics Eisfeld GmbH, Systalen® Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) recyclates are produced whose origin is the yellow can or the yellow bag. These recycled granulates can then be used to produce new flexible plastic packaging, such as shrink films for beverage multi packs or plastic products like mailing bags, trash bags etc.


At Systec Plastics GmbH in Hörstel, on the other hand, Systalen® recyclates are manufactured from hard plastics (PP)

How do old packaging become new again?

Waste from household collection (yellow bin & yellow bag) is pre-sorted by material type in sorting facilities.

These pre-sorted LDPE bales are then first checked for quality and composition in our incoming inspection.

Then the bales are crushed and ferrous metals are separated at the same time.

In the next step, stones, rigid plastics, etc. are removed in the zigzag windsifter. Paper & organic materials are removed in dry mechanical cleaning.

Flakes are then cleaned in the float-sink basin and mechanical drying.

Production of LDPE recyclate - Systec Plastics Eisfeld

In extrusion, the regrind is finally melted, degassed, microfiltered and granulated.

The result is high-quality Systalen® recycled granules that are very suitable for further processing.

Each production batch is internally tested for various quality criteria such as flowability (MFI), color measurement, density, moisture, etc.

Further tests are possible on request, e.g. (DSC), (XRF), tensile test, near infrared (NIR).
