Recycling & Waste Industry Today

Plastics Recycling Expo welcomes UNTHA UK

In June 2014, the Telford International Centre will open its doors to the Plastics Recycling Expo, the only dedicated plastic recycling exhibition and conference in Europe.
Published 23 April 2014

Designed to stimulate debate, knowledge transfer and networking in the plastics recycling sector, this two day event will welcome industry professionals from across the country. And as a plastic shredding specialist with a renowned range of machinery tailored to handle this often complex material stream, it is no surprise that UNTHA UK will be heading down south to get involved.

As passionate reduce, reuse and recycle advocates, UNTHA UK’s plastic shredding experts are inviting delegates to visit stand F030 and learn more about transforming today’s plastic ‘waste’ into tomorrow’s resource.  Keen to demonstrate that sustainable business practice can be commercially advantageous too, UNTHA UK will also be advising how technology can improve efficiencies within plastic recycling operations and impact positively upon companies’ bottom lines.

Commenting on the importance of this expo, Chris explains: “A recent study carried out by recycling association Recoup found that plastic is the materials consumers are most uncertain about when it comes to secondary use. This shows that a greater level of dialogue is needed if the UK is to achieve the recycling rates it is capable of.

“However the plastics industry is incredibly complex and opportunities for improvement do not just lie in the home. There should be greater collaboration among industry professionals, to encourage the more intelligent design, manufacture, collection, reuse and recycling of plastic products. As a nation we have so much technological know-how to be proud of – this event is about nurturing this talent and stimulating greater plastic recycling progress.”

Renowned for handling all applications, UNTHA UK particularly excels in the heavy duty shredding of bulky or large quantities of plastics – the team’s powerful yet precise single shaft VR has revolutionised the industry’s approach to this type of material. With the largest diameter rotor in the UK marketplace and a robust drive mechanism, this clever shredder achieves unparalleled throughput, even in the toughest plastic shredding environment.

For a more compact plastic shredding solution, UNTHA UK offers customers the LRK series of machinery. With a range of interchangeable screens for definable particle sizes and outstanding uptime, these shredders are highly reliable and easy to operate. And for customers with incredibly restrictive site space, UNTHA UK has recently introduced its smallest machine yet – the CE-certified S25 shredder which is supplied as a complete system and is literally ready to ‘plug and go’.  Purposefully designed for the volume reduction of recyclates, the S25 is suitable for PET bottles and plastic packaging, as well as other lightweight material streams.
