At Plastics & Rubber Vietnam to be held in Hanoi from November 27-29, 2019, Starlinger will be presenting machinery and process technology for woven plastic packaging as well as plastics recycling and refinement at Booth E1.
Starlinger is world market leader in the field of machinery and process technology for woven plastic bags – the portfolio ranges from tape extrusion lines, winders and circular looms to lines for coating, printing and sack conversion. Companies worldwide use Starlinger technologies to enter new markets through innovative packaging concepts such as AD*STAR®, PP*STAR® or (recycled) PET tape fabric.
Sales and service centres in Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, the USA and Uzbekistan as well as numerous local agents ensure quick and comprehensive service.
Circular packaging – rPP big bags
With “circular packaging”, Starlinger recently introduced an elaborate concept for a closed loop for big bags that begins with polypropylene granulate and leads back to polypropylene regranulate (rPP) through the process steps production, usage, recovery, and recycling. A closed loop has the advantage that production occurs within a quality assurance system, and the materials used are documented in a so-called “material passport”. In cooperation with the renowned big bag manufacturers Louis Blockx and LC Packaging, Starlinger has simulated this loop and produced new big bags from fabric with high rPP content. Starlinger rPP big bags show the same quality as big bags made from virgin material in terms of tensile strength, weight, and safety factor.
Starlinger recycling technology
For more than 30 years, Starlinger recycling technology has been providing machinery solutions for the recycling and refinement of a wide scope of plastics such as PE, PP, PA, PS, BOPP and PET. The recoSTAR lines produce high-quality pellets from scrap that accrues during the production of film, sheet, fibres, non-woven, raffia, tapes, bottles or preforms as well as from post-consumer plastics.
PET recycling – a new life for PET bottles
In the spirit of a circular economy, bottles become bottles once more: this is achieved with the Starlinger “recoSTAR PET iV+” technology. The recycling lines meet the strict criteria of various national and international authorities (e.g. EFSA, FDA) with regard to food contact as well as the quality requirements of major brand owners. Another option in great demand is bottle-to-fibre recycling, which turns used PET bottles into textiles such as sports apparel. Starlinger offers the entire recycling technology from a single source, from lines for solid-state polycondensation (for increasing the intrinsic viscosity when mixing flakes with fibres) up to a continuous polymer filter for finest filtration down to 15 µm.
