The TUSTI high tech recycling process is developed in our laboratories, located on the TU/e Science Park in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. In this fully equipped lab, CTO Jan Kolijn develops new cleaning agents and adjustments to our cleaning process, to enhance cleaning efficiency and expand the range of ‘difficult’ waste streams we can handle.
Plastics are shredded and cleaned in our factory in Montfort, the Netherlands. By making smart adjustments to the 6000 ton/year industrial plastic washing/recycling line of Stiphout Plastics, we are able to clean plastics that are polluted with frying oils. The industrial plastic recycling line consists of four stages:
The Stiphout Plastics factory uses waste water and certified green energy from gas generated at the waste disposal site, where the factory is located.
The liquids (water, oil and cleaner) are separated using sophisticated separation technology. In that way we can re-use the cleaning agent and supply the purified oil to biofuel producers.
This cleaning process is operated at room temperature to minimize the energy demand. The efficient separation processes ensures that the cleaning agent can be efficiently used time after time.
