    Construction of a TetraPak recycling plant.

    Ecoplasteam is constructing the world’s first plant for the production of EcoAllene through the recycling of polyethylene and aluminium polycomposite recovered from food packaging (POAL; commonly known as TetraPak) at Via Gambalera 180 in Spinetta Marengo, Alessandria.

    The project is being implemented by Amut with a loan of €4.2 million obtained by the Banca Popolare di Milano, with assistance from Swiss Merchant Corporation.

    Amut has provided both the technology for POAL treatment and washing and the extrusion line to turn the final material into pellets. On 26th June 2018, Amut reported that the facility will begin operations in September 2018.

    The process is based on a European patent owned by Replan Global Sagl that is exclusively licensed to Ecoplasteam for the construction of plants based on this technology and for the production of EcoAllene.

    Once completed, the plant will enable Ecoplasteam to recycle 7,000 tonnes of waste coming from this particular packaging disposal, mainly from the polycomposite part (up to now only cellulose can be recovered).

    The input material, in the form of co-mingled bales, comes from the paper mill after undergoing a process for TetraPak cellulose recovery. The material is processed and treated through progressive phases and washed with a series of equipment in order to reduce the presence of paper fibres. Once the material is clean, it is mixed by a gravimetric dosing system, filtrated, granulated by the extrusion line and finally put in big bags. EcoAllene becomes a raw material to be extruded or injection moulded like a standard polymer.

    EcoAllene is a new material whose main feature is that it can always be recycled. It is also easy to colour and contains some aluminium particles that make it slightly glittered. The main application fields are: automotive, building, giftware and general tools.
