Challenges of LDPE Recycling

Let’s examine the procedure for recycling polyethylene and then highlight some of the various difficulties encountered.

The film is first collected, frequently from farms or warehouses and frequently after being compressed or baled using a trash compactor or waste baler. We rent out plastic trash balers. It is delivered to a recycling center. Because LDPE film is used in agriculture, one of the biggest obstacles to recycling it is that it is frequently polluted and needs to go through a thorough cleaning and sorting procedure. This may become wasteful of time, resources, and money.

Processing With the ability for injection moulding, rotational moulding, film blowing, and blow moulding, LDPE is one of the simplest plastics to work with. It can be made flame-retardant, antimicrobial, anti-static, and anti-slip. With all this simplicity and potential, LDPE recycling is a thriving sector in the UK, but the biggest issue still lies in attempting to effectively clean and disinfect the plastic.
