AlwaysFree: Borealis, TOMRA Start Up New Plastic Waste Sorting, Recycling Plant


Borealis and TOMRA on Thursday announced the operational start of a new advanced mechanical recycling demo plant in Lahnstein, Germany. The new demo plant implements the EverMinds platform founded by Borealis. It is aimed to provide material for brand owners and converters so they can validate and prove whether the material suits highly demanding applications. If it is successful, the partnership will proceed with a commercial-scale advanced recycling plant.

Under the partnership, Borealis provides its knowledge and expertise in recycling and compounding. TOMRA provides its technological solutions and proven expertise in the advanced collection and sorting systems. The partnership also includes Zimmermann, a waste management company, which is responsible for successful plant operations and product quality.

The new plant processes both rigid and flexible plastic waste from households to produce Borcycle M grade recycled polymers. Borealis said the polymers could meet customer quality requirements for high-demanding plastic applications in various industries, such as automotive and consumer products.
