Plastkretsen has signed a contract with the German sorting system supplier Sutco. The contract includes production and installation of a turnkey sorting system for plastic packaging in the Motala facility.
The system has been designed, production has started and assembly will commence at the facility in the summer. The value of the contract is just over EUR 17 M.
The facility will be test run in 2018 and have sorting capacity for all of the plastic packaging from Swedish households. The sorting facility will be designed to handle all types of plastic packaging. In just a few steps, the plastic bales will be split, sorted and separated. The investment is an important step in Plastkretsen’s efforts to increase the recycling of plastic packaging.
Plastkretsen expects about 50 people to be employed at the facility, and recruitments to various positions will take place gradually during the year.
