By marking HDPE cartridges using UV screen printing inks, they can be detected via a hyperspectral camera and sorted out from the material flow at high conveyor belt speeds without any effort using conventional sorting technology. The recycling process of HDPE is no longer contaminated with silicone residues.
The innovation not only enables critical packaging to be sorted out, but it can also be used to separate other polymers such as Food and Non-Food PET or PP. This sorting solution means that a closed cycle is no longer a fantasy for the future and can already begin today.
