On 19th April 2019 the Cypriot president Nikos Anastasiadis personally inaugurated a new plastics recycling plant in Limassol. Christos Poullaides, Chairman of PCC Recycling, a Poullaides Group company: “It is a dream come true. More than 10,000 tons of plastic waste can now be converted into plastic pellets in our new facility and will no longer pollute the island’s flora and fauna. Using state-of-the-art technology from Lindner and Starlinger, we can now create high-quality recyclables that reduce the use of primary raw materials and are turned into new products such as film and plastic packaging.”

Wide range of applications
The range of applications is vast for the new turn-key plastics recycling facility. In addition to heavily contaminated post-consumer waste (HDPE and LDPE) from the domestic waste collection, extremely light and high-volume post-industrial film (stretch film) is also processed. “We receive source material of varying quality, which is why flexibility was one of the most important criteria when selecting the right technology. The processing system developed by Lindner gives us a clear competitive advantage, as we can produce clean and, above all, high-quality flakes at a consistently high throughput for the downstream extruder. The combination of the Lindner shredder and the perfectly coordinated washing and drying components totally won us over”, explains Andreas Poullaides, CEO of PCC Waste Management.
Shredding, washing, drying
“We always develop our systems with our clients’ specifications in mind. The expertise and experience of our project engineers, combined with sophisticated machine technology, are critical for every project and were crucial to the successful implementation at PCC”, explains Harald Hoffmann, CEO of Lindner Washtech.

From washed plastic waste to high-quality regranulate
“Since its introduction at the leading plastics trade show K in 2013, the C-VAC module has rapidly become a door opener in post-consumer recycling”, observes Florian Mitterecker, Regional Sales Manager at Starlinger recycling technology. Especially in the field of post-consumer waste, the efficient extraction of gases plays a key role, as it ensures the production of high-quality regranulate without air pockets.
