The plant manufacturer Sutco® RecyclingTechnik GmbH from Bergisch Gladbach has been awarded the contract for the construction of the fully automatic plant for light weight packaging at the Gernsheim site. The start of construction work for the project of the Meilo company for the rescission of sorted materials mbH & Co. KG is in August 2017, the acceptance of the sorting system is already planned for the end of 2017.
According to the company spokesman, the sorting plant, which is built on a 32,000-square-meter site, has already been designed for the significantly higher recycling rates of the new packaging legislation. It is also easy to adapt to new sorting fractions. Already with the construction of the sorting plant for light weight packaging in Iserlohn, currently the most modern sorting system in Europe, Sutco has already set new standards in terms of the return rates and sorter sequence in 2015.
In the spring of 2018, the sorting facility for light weight packaging from the “Duales System” in Gernsheim is expected to start operations and to sort out a wide range of materials from 120,000 tonnes of packaging waste annually.
