The Green Line Polymers subsidiary of Advanced Drainage Systems Inc. (ADS) has commissioned a new plastics recycling line at its facility in Pandora, Ohio.
Austria-based NGR Plastics Recycling Technologies, which provided the equipment, says the plastics granulating line is the largest such piece of machinery it has ever produced.
NGR indicates the model being installed can convert more than 4,000 pounds per hour of a diverse type of plastic scrap, including industrial polyethylene, into what it calls a high-quality recyclable plastic granulate.
The recovered granules will be used to manufacture drainage pipes and hoses for ADS, which produces a variety of thermoplastic pipe and hose products used primarily in the construction industry.
NGR says it has supplied more than 1,200 machines worldwide.
