The plant, which began operating at the end of 2016, has been designed to produce bottle-to-bottle-quality flakes to meet United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) food-contact standards. In its current stage, the plant is processing 2,000 tonnes per month, says Herbold Meckesheim, although the plant has been designed to allow for expansion.
In a multi-stage process, the bottles are pre-sorted, size-reduced and then washed cold and hot. Two Herbold granulators with a capacity of 1,800 kilograms per hour each (3,970 pounds per hour) are part of the system. After drying, the flakes are forwarded to a flake sorting step.
