The research project
On 28/10/2008 on the basis of the Decision no.
DSN/AN/2840/2008 of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education
MPTS Sp. z o.o. received a grant for the project “Implementation of
the GPET recycling technology”.
SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT:
The project involve deliberate execution of research related to the
implementation of a new, highly-efficient and economically
reasonable technology of recycling bottles and GPET foil by the main
usage of the latest generation Starlinger /Austria/ regranulation
line. The project will develop and implement technology to the
practice of recycling chemically modified industrial waste line GPET
polyester, not yet recovered on a larger scale on the Polish market.
The project intends to prepare specifications of the GPET waste
material entering the process and determine the optimal
technological parameters (temperature and drying time, temperature
and pressure in the plastification system, rotary screw speed) of
the line for regranulation of plastic. New technology will be used
for the production of GPET regranualte then used for the production
of foils for thermo forming and bottles for the chemical substances.
Applied research and development of the technology will affect the
thermo- and rheological analysis of the input material as well as
the strength of the produced regranulate. This will determine the
conditions of implementation at the MPTS plant the new recycling
technologies and evaluate the effectiveness of the process. The high
knowledge potential of the Institute of Materials Technology of the
Poznan University of Technology as well as the practical know-how of
the company will be used in the research project.
The implementation work will consist of the introduction to the
practice of the new industrial recycling technology related to the
production of high-quality GPET regranulate. The outcome of the
project will also be tested and reviewed to produce procedures and
algorithms to be used in the future for the evaluation of the
Completion of these tasks should be an incentive for additional
business growth, enhancing its prestige and quality of manufactured
products and extending their range. It should also improve the
competitiveness of the company and its efficiency in acquiring new
contracts as well as lead to the creation of new jobs, and thereby
PURPOSE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VENTURE:
The overall goal is to produce and examine the GPET polyester
regranulate for the production of thermo-formed foils and bottles
from the waste GPET and recycling of other waste GPET.
The main practical purpose of the project is the application of the
entirely new GPET regranulate production technology in the polish
industry - with the highest possible quality needed for further use
in the production of GPET films, bottles, etc.
Authors intend to achieve these objectives within the framework of
industrial research by creating a unique across the country and
Europe technology and its implementation for the production of new
types of high-quality GPET regranulate. Implemented in the
manufacture of regranulate the project should provide higher utility
and better quality of the finished goods, as well as better
mechanical properties of the foils and packages produced from these.
For this purpose, an innovative technology of GPET regranulate
production will be developed and studies of their basic physical and
mechanical properties will be carried out.
The work related to the implementation of the mass production of
GPET regranulate will depend on the completion of modifications to
the existing line for the production of PET regranulate and its
accessories. Firstly, a test series of regranulate will be produced.
Secondly, a quality examination will be made among the users of
regranulate (foil and bottles producers). Finally, verification
tests and economic assessment of the project will be carried out.
Implementation of these tasks should lead to the development and
implementation of a unique in this industry technology and processes
which will increase the quality of produced regranulate. In
addition, the project will raise the prestige of the company and
will become an additional impulse for the development of the
business, which will improve its competitiveness in the domestic
market and abroad and help to create new jobs.
