The plastic journey - The plastic recycling process
In a journey in episodes, our Global Sales green economy Director Massimo Veronelli, will tell you the story of what happens in S.E.R., the plant in Salsomaggiore Terme where polymers and compounds are produced from postconsumer plastics.
Where does plastic from separate waste collection end up?
The waste is collected by local municipal companies, which separate it and make an initial selection according to the different types of material. These are then sent in bales to our plant S.E.R., where they are prepared for processing. They are again sorted according to polymer composition, then ground, washed and centrifuged!
