Bepex to install flake-to-flake PET recycling tech in Vietnam

July 26/2011

(PlasticsToday) -- Vietnam's Thanh Tai Gas Co. has ordered a flake-to-flake recycling system that allows for bottle-to-bottle (BtB) production, and the ability to recycle up to 1.5 billion polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles. Bepex International (Minneapolis, MN) will custom design, fabricate, and deliver the line, its first ever BePET system sold into South East Asia, this year, with the machine installed and fully operational by January 2012. A second parallel line will be plugged in afterwards.

FDA-approved, BePET's technology allows the processing plant operator to control both decontamination of the plastic and its intrinsic viscosity (IV) at the same time and in solid form. Different IV plastics can be used for different applications, with the ability to use high IV PET for tire cord applications, for example, while low IV plastic can be used for fiber applications. Bepex says the BePET's process design also allows lower operating and capital costs, with savings of up to 60% when compared to currently available recycling systems.
