Plastics & Textiles
Around 899 thousand tons of PET plastic bottles were recycled nationwide in 2013, but more than two times as much PET was wasted: 2 million tons. Recycling plastic takes 88% less energy than making plastic from raw materials. -CRI, RCU
So many shapes, sizes, and types. Only one shredder needed.
Typical Applications for Plastics & Textiles

Plastics & Textiles Solutions
SSI has many shredders installed in plastic processing applications ahead of granulators to downsize bulky, difficult to manage or compressible materials before additional processing and recycling. We also have many shredders employed converting plastic materials into usable fuel sources for industry.
Here are some typical system solutions:
SSI technologies can accept direct-fed bales of plastic, downsize the material and regulate flow to downstream processing machinery such as granulators, cubers, pelletizers, etc.
Toll processors never know exactly what they may receive, and therefore they want to be ready for anything. SSI shredders are able to handle the range of materials and they are also easy to keep clean between batches, thanks to slow speed, high torque technology.
With numerous installations, SSI Dual-Shear® and Uni-Shear® shredders are highly reliable and efficient solutions for processing carpet pad and foam for reclamation.
