The growing plastics recycling plant required a system upgrade that would ensure a quality end-product whilst allowing for rapid growth at the plant.
GT Recycling wanted a low maintenance system for operators.
Aerofloat installed a wastewater treatment plant that recycled the wash water to wash GT Recycling’s recycled plastic.
Aerofloat designed a system that would manage production growth at the site, treating wastewater flows of up to 20m3 per hour.
The entire plant was automated to ensure low maintenance for operators.
“The plant runs itself so our operators can concentrate on other areas of the business.”

Aerofloat recently installed a wastewater treatment system at GT Recycling in Moolap, Victoria to wash the recycled plastic to ensure quality products for their customers.
Plastics recycling company, GT Recycling in Moolap, Victoria needed a system upgrade to ensure quality products for their customers.
Director for GT Recycling, Tim McLean said significant growth in recent years meant that the existing system on site required a significant upgrade to keep up with demand.
“As a company that’s rapidly growing, the tonnage that is going to come through the plant in the future is going increase dramatically. We therefore wanted a system in place that could handle that growth,” said McLean.
The existing system was also maintenance heavy. GT Recycling were looking for a low-maintenance solution that would allow operators to focus on the production end of business.
The company also needed to be assured of a quality end-product for its customers.
“We collect and process post-industrial and commercial hard and soft plastics here on site and send the finished goods away to manufacturers,” said McLean.
