The first in the world
British company James Cropper is the first company in the world established a factory for recycling paper-plastic cups in to high quality cellulose.
Plastic cups are the most popular material for beverages (coffe, juce, milkshakes).
There are 2.5 billions of the paper cups thrown away in Great Britain yearly. The paper cups contain some plastic and this is the reason why it’s recycling was a problem until recently. But now the problem of disposal of the paper cups has been solved with development of new technology.
Technology is the following: after heating plastic layer is removed, then plastic crushed and processed in the way to get cellulose and moisture only. Water and cellulose passing through filtration system, thereby there is forming high-quality mass. This mass can be successfully used for paper and packing production.
