Thanks to state-of-the-art plant technology and continuous innovations, Systec Plastics Eisfeld GmbH is the leading competence center for high-quality recycled pellets and compounds made of low density polyethylene (LDPE) with
- seven wash- and three extrusion lines
- Europe's largest exhaust air biofilter plant (filter size 1,000 m²)
- own test laboratory
Systec Plastics Eisfeld is one of the largest European producers of post consumer recyclates from yellow bags & yellow garbage cans. Currently, the annual output is approx. 28,000 t of rLDPE - with an upward trend due to extensive expansions from 2023 onwards.
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.
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).
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.
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).
Shipment and/or collection to/from customer after successful QA release.
Delivery/shipment according to customer's request by big bag, octabin or in silo truck.
