Many years of experience and continuous innovations make Systec Plastics GmbH in Hörstel the competence center for recycled granules and compounds made of polypropylene (PP) with
- two washing lines and
- two extrusion lines
The Systec Plastics plant in Hörstel is one of the largest European producers of post-consumer recyclates from yellow sacks and yellow garbage cans. The annual output is currently over 22,000 t of rPP.
The plant will be continuously expanded in the coming years.
Systalen® rPP granules are suitable for a wide range of applications, such as injection molding, extrusion and thermoforming.
In Hörstel, we produce the following Systalen® PP grades:
- rPP Standard
- rPP Extra
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 recyclate in various treatments, forms and compositions.
At Systec Plastics GmbH in Hörstel, pure Systalen® recycled polypropylene (PP) granulate is produced from the waste from the yellow ton and the yellow bag. This can be used to produce new rigid plastic packaging such as closures, jars, etc. or rigid plastic products such as pens, chairs, boxes, baskets, flower pots, buckets & co.
Our Systec Plastics in Eisfeld produces Systalen® Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) recyclates.
Waste from household collection (yellow sack & yellow garbage can) is pre-sorted in sorting plants according to material type.
These pre-sorted PP bales are then first checked for quality and composition in our incoming inspection.
After quality inspection, the bales are shredded and ferrous metals are separated at the same time.
The plastic flakes then pass through several separation and washing stages.
In extrusion, the regrind is finally melted, degassed, microfiltered and granulated.
The result is high-quality Systalen® recycled granules that can be further processed very well.
Each production batch is regularly tested for various quality criteria. These include, for example, melt flow rate (MFI), color measurement on the granules, bulk density or volatile parts/moisture measurement.
In addition, further tests are possible on request, such as density, color measurements on the injection plate, DSC, X-ray fluorescence (XRF), tensile test (23°C), notched impact strength (23°C) or ash & carbon black content.
Dispatch and/or delivery from/to customer after successful QA-approval.
Shipment according as requested by the customer by big bag, octabin or in a silo truck.
