In December 2019, Aerofloat was awarded a prestigious Green Tech Consensus Award for its unique plant design for the plastics recycling industry. Previous recipients included Atlassian and WiseTech Global. Aerofloat is seen as a true enabler to this emerging industry with multiple systems already installed and several in the pipeline.
The initial cleaning and separating process in plastics recycling requires large volumes of recirculating washwater. This water becomes contaminated (often with dairy components from ice-cream, yoghurt and milk containers), and requires regular replacement to avoid odours and contamination of the final recycled product.
Replacing the wash water can be a costly exercise. Aerofloat’s unique design uses its patented aeration system to treat wash water to a standard suitable for reuse in the wash water tank, saving significant water usage and costs.
Depending on the individual project, Aerofloat can include its AeroMBBR and AeroDAF products to create a custom design. Aerofloat’s design is easy to operate and maintain as well as cost-effective and reliable.
Aerofloat’s wastewater treatment systems solve numerous common problems for plastic recycling plants.
Aerofloat’s partnership with Circular Plastics Australia ensured compliant wastewater that could be reused as wash water within the recycling plant, helping to reduce the company’s footprint further with significant savings on water usage.
