How to recycle paper and plastic


What is Paper Plastic

The composition of paper-plastic mainly consists of two materials: paper and plastic. Specifically, paper-plastic is made from a plastic film by attaching a paper or cellulose substrate (e.g., kraft paper, aluminum foil paper, glossy board paper, white cardboard, etc.) to the surface of the film. This combination makes paper-plastic not only have the softness and easy processing of paper, but also have the superior properties of plastic such as waterproof, corrosion resistance and flexibility. As an intermediate material, paper-plastic has a wide range of applications in many fields.

Applications of Paper-Plastic

Paper-plastic materials have been widely used in many fields due to their environmentally friendly and biodegradable properties. In the food industry, paper-plastic materials are used to make cake boxes, bread bags and other packaging to ensure that the food is fresh and hygienic; in the medical field, paper-plastic materials are commonly used in the packaging of medical supplies, such as syringes, surgical instruments, etc., to ensure that they are sterile and clean; in addition, cosmetics and electronic products are also often packaged in paper-plastic materials, such as lipstick tubes, eyeshadow boxes, cell phone liners, etc., which is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also can protect the Product quality. At the same time, paper-plastic materials are also used to make environmentally friendly tableware, such as pulp molding lunch boxes, paper cups, etc. These tableware can be naturally degraded, in line with the concept of sustainable development.

Paper and Plastic Recycling Process

Pre-treatment: Pre-treatment of paper-plastic waste, such as sorting, cleaning and removing impurities.
Crushing: The pre-treated paper-plastic waste is crushed through a crusher to break it into smaller pieces or particles.
Paper-plastic separation: The crushed paper-plastic mixture is separated using specialized paper-plastic separation equipment, such as a split paper-plastic separator. Separation methods include physical methods (e.g. sieving, wind separation) and chemical methods (e.g. solvent separation), depending on the type of paper-plastic mixture and separation requirements.
Cleaning: The separated paper and plastic are cleaned separately to remove residual impurities, ink, glue, etc.
Drying: The cleaned paper and plastic are dried to remove excess moisture.
Reprocessing: The dried paper and plastics are reprocessed. Paper can be recycled to make paper, while plastics can be regenerated and pelletized for use in the manufacture of new plastic products.

Machinery Recycling Advantages

Shredder has significant advantages in the field of paper and plastic recycling. Its highly efficient shredding capacity can quickly break paper-plastic waste into small pieces or particles, reducing disposal costs. At the same time, the shredder has a wide range of applicability and is able to handle a wide range of types, sizes and materials of paper-plastic waste. In addition, the shredder does not require the addition of chemical reagents during the crushing process, which is environmentally friendly and energy efficient, and meets the requirements of environmental protection and sustainable development. At the same time, the shredder is equipped with multiple safety protection devices, easy to operate and maintain, ensuring the safety of the operator.
