Plastics recycling requires significant water use: Aerofloat’s award-winning technology means you can reuse your washwater.
The plastics recycling industry is growing rapidly in response to the increased global focus on creating sustainable industries. Aerofloat has undertaken research and development into understanding the plastics recycling process, and has developed an award-winning, fit-for-purpose solution for the industry that allows for ongoing washwater reuse.
The initial cleaning and separating process in plastics recycling requires large volumes of recirculating water. 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 washwater can be a costly exercise. Aerofloat’s unique design uses Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor (MBBR) with its patented aeration system and AeroDAF to treat washwater to a standard suitable for reuse in the washwater tank, saving significant water usage and costs.
In 2019, Aerofloat was awarded a prestigious Green Tech Consensus Award for its unique plant design for the plastics recycling industry. Aerofloat is seen as a true enabler to this emerging industry with several systems already installed and a number in the pipeline.
