“Working with TOMRA we have been able to develop a plastics recovery facility which we can adapt in order to meet the differing requirements of our customers,” Chizzali continues. "For us, the relationship of trust that has been established with TOMRA is also important. They not only met our tight installation timeframes, but also helped us to develop and optimize our recovery processes effectively and efficiently.”
Francesca Romana Febbo, Quality, Environment and Safety Manager at Masotina, adds "We now have a considerable number of TOMRA optical sorters and we are very satisfied with their performance. There are 12 units on the original line from 2014, four on the new pre-sorting line (which includes the Tetra Pak line) and 16 on the new main polymers line.”
At present, the new main polymers line can process 15tph, the historical line between 7 and 10tph, and the Tetra Pak line 4tph, giving a total plant throughput of between 26 and 29tph.
