Ad Rem presents their newest technology for WEEE and fridge plastics recycling in the UK
AO Recycling is part of AO.com, a large retailer of electric and electronic devices in the UK.
The recycling branch of AO.com was looking for a solution to recycle the fridge plastics, so they could be re-used in new fridge production.
Ad Rem and Hamos have combined forces to develop a unique process. We start with the WEEE plastics mix and send it through the Ad Rem flotation, operating on a density of 1.09 specific gravity. To obtain the correct density, we add a patented pH-neutral agent to water. As opposed to the traditional use of salt, this agent does not dissolve into water, but remains in suspension, which enables us to recover and reuse it. It is a cheap substance that does not interfere with the electrostatic separation downstream, which is why this technology is so suitable to combine with the Hamos technology. In subsequent steps, the PE/PP is separated from the PS/ABS in a second flotation tank running on water, after which the PS/ABS is separated using the Hamos electrostatic line.Ad Rem and Hamos
The installation which was delivered to AO Recycling has a capacity of 4 tonnes per hour. This results into a total capacity of approximately 25.000 tonnes per year. With this machine our customer is ready for the future.
