Vecoplan forms strategic partnership with Pla.to Technology

The efficient shredding and cleaning of used plastics is a crucial step in chemical recycling. This process allows for the reuse of plastic waste that is too complex for mechanical recycling methods, but too valuable to simply dispose of. Chemical recycling breaks down plastics into their chemical components, which can then be used as raw materials for new plastics. This helps to reduce the consumption of fossil resources and prevent environmental pollution from plastic waste.

At IFAT, Vecoplan shared information with experts about their plans to enhance their expertise in this area and formed a strategic partnership with Pla.to Technology. Pla.to Technology, based in Görlitz, specializes in durable and wear-resistant cleaning processes for the efficient recycling of used plastics, with 20 years of experience in established systems. This partnership provides Vecoplan with a solid foundation to expand into cleaning processes. By combining Vecoplan’s expertise in recyclable material processing with Pla.to’s experience in cleaning technologies, customers can now access comprehensive processing solutions from a single source. Through successful testing and collaboration over the years, the two partners have integrated their technologies seamlessly.

Neste, Borealis and Covestro have joined forces to close the loop in the automotive industry by recycling discarded tires into high-quality plastics for automotive applications. The three companies have developed a unique process that uses pyrolysis technology to break down tires into their chemical components, which can then be used as raw materials for new plastics such as polypropylene and ethylene oxide monomer (EOM). This process not only reduces waste but also conserves natural resources by reducing the need for new oil-based feedstocks. The partnership aims to promote sustainability in the automotive industry by providing a closed-loop solution that reduces emissions and conserves natural resources.
