Shredded and washed flakes are created - along with fines as the second fraction - when non-returnable PET bottles are recycled. These fines occur in large quantities and are hence a significant and valuable part of the PET cycle. However, as an input material they are difficult to handle on account of the very high proportion of paper, aluminum or PVC. The continuously operating, high performance melt filters in the Ettlinger ECO series are capable of removing high quality PET, even from such critical fractions, for subsequent reuse in the manufacture of complex products like clear thermoform sheets or packaging tape.
