Liquid Extraction From PET Bottle Outdated Beverage Liquid

GreenMax PET bottle recycling

The wide application of PET bottles in the beverage industry has resulted in large quantities of waste bottles, which need outdated beverage recycling. Waste PET bottles come from daily consumption of bottle-packed drinks, line-rejected, returned and date expired PET bottle beverage products in factories, and so on.

And it’s a big problem for all beverage producers to deal with the massive waste of PET bottles because there are liquids remained in the bottles and the bottles waste storage and transporting space. Aiming at this marketing needs, GreenMax promotes the Poseidon Series, which is specially designed for compacting containers like PET bottles, aluminum cans and so on.

GreenMax initially focused on EPS recycling machines, in order to make it more convenient for our EPS recycling business and to enlarge our waste EPS supply sources. However, when realizing the difficulties of dealing with waste PET bottles of the beverage producers and bottle recyclers, GreenMax feels necessary to step into this area and provide professional machinery service for them.




Current situation of PET bottle

PET is a highly crystalline polymer in milky white or light yellow, with a smooth and shiny surface. PET has good properties of creep resistance, fatigue resistance, and abrasion resistance. It also has the best toughness among all the thermoplastics and little affection from the temperature.

As a kind of non-toxic plastic, PET is used as a raw material for making packaging such as bottles and containers to packaging a wide range of food products and consumer goods, such as soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, pharmaceutical products, detergents, cosmetics, and edible oils.




Traditional way of PET bottle recycling

Since the abandoned waste PET bottles would cause great waste and white pollution, it’s necessary to get them recycled. The traditional way of plastic bottle recycling brings many problems for the beverage producers and bottle recyclers.

No.1 it’s very troublesome and tiring to pour out the liquids from the bottles manually and it’s costive to hire people to do this work.
No.2 the empty bottles are still large in volume and waste storage and transporting space.
No.3 the whole procedure would make the processing place dirty and messy, which is a quite unpleasant scene.

Poseidon comes to get rid of these troubles

With the help of Poseidon, all you need to do is pulse-on the machine and then throw the PET bottles into the feed bins. Poseidon can do all the rest tasks automatically. The liquids are squeezed out while the bottles are compacted.




After process, 85%-95% of the liquids are extracted from the bottles and they are collected into a tank. Before draining out, they would be treated first in order to avoid water pollution. As for the compacting effect, the bottles’ volume ratio before and after compacting is around 6:1.




Applications of the recycled PET bottles

There are industries that reuse recycled PET bottles. They serve as the driving force of PET bottle recycling and outdated liquid recycling, otherwise the bottles still exist as waste plastic even though they are dewatered and compacted.

For example, the waste PET bottles recycled in German are compacted into smaller sizes and sold to China. Chinese factories process the waste bottles into textiles such as woolen sweaters, which are transported back to the German market. The price of the raw materials equals only 32 Euro cents, while the woolen sweaters are sold at the unit-price of 50-100 Euros. There are good profits.
