Metal Separation Demos Ignite Interest at IFAT 2018

Visitors to IFAT 2018 Enthralled by Working Magnetic Separators

An Eddy Current Separator was violently expelling non-ferrous metals from plastic waste on one side of the stand, whilst large chunks of fragmented stainless steel were being separated by the SSSC on the other.  ‘Seeing Is Believing’ was very much the basis of the Bunting and Master Magnets stand at IFAT 2018 (14th – 18th May 2018).

“We wanted to showcase our metal separation technology,” explained Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales, “and that meant having production-sized equipment operating on the stand.  The positive reaction of visitors highlighted the importance of being able to show metal being separated.”

IFAT is the first major waste and recycling exhibition of 2018 in Europe, featuring 3,305 exhibitors and over 141,000 visitors.  Key topics discussed during the week-long show included the filtering of microplastics; more effective recycling of plastics; and the digital transformation of the entire industry.

“Effective metal separation is vital for the successful recycling and reuse of many secondary materials,” said Dave.  “As a specialist in Magnetic Separation, we believed that the IFAT show provided the perfect platform to show recycling companies what is possible.  The show proved to be exceptionally successful and we are now in discussion with companies all over the world.”

Following the IFAT exhibition, many companies who visited the stand are sending samples to the Master Magnets laboratory in the UK for controlled tests to confirm the separation capability of both the Eddy Current Separator and Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator.

“There was a lot of interest in the Stainless Steel Magnetic Separator.  Stainless steel is a problematic material and, due to it’s hardness, can cause real problems in granulators and shredders.  Visitors were often surprised to see large fragmented stainless steel being attracted and separated.  It has generated a huge amount of interest and there is a lot of work to do.”

Plastics Positivity at Technivation

Polymer Training and Innovation Centre Hosts UK Plastics Sector Professionals

The Technivation conference, hosted by the Polymer Training and Innovation Centre in Telford (18th April 2018), attracted delegates from across the UK plastics sector.

The Polymer Training and Innovation Centre (PITC) provides training for engineers working with plastics and has an extensive range of working equipment including moulding machines, pneumatic conveying systems, and magnetic separators.

Bunting Europe at TechnivationAt Technivation, there were talks from machinery manufacturers and also an industry update from the British Plastics Federation.  BPF Membership Services Director, Stephen Hunt, highlighted a change in the awareness and public perception of plastics since the airing of the BBC Blue Planet II series at the end of 2017.  The BPF have been working hard to clarify misconceptions about plastics, highlighting that plastic is vital in the manufacture of so many products including cars, medical equipment, and IT.  They are presently working closely with the UK Government on the proposed tax for single use plastics, which closes on 18th May 2018.

As Stephen Hunt explained, the plastics sector is the 8th largest exporting industry in the UK with a turnover of £25.5 billion.  The sector is also the 2nd largest employer in the manufacturing industry.  He also highlighted how waste from the USA and European Union combined only contributes 2% to the amount of plastic waste found in our oceans.

Delegates at Technivation had the opportunity to tour the training facility and meet representatives from equipment manufacturers including Summit Systems, Kistler, Arburg, and Staubli.  Tom Higginbottom, Bunting’s Sales Engineer, was demonstrating how to effectively remove metal from the plastics process using a combination of a FF Drawer Filter Magnet and Quicktron Metal Detector.

“At Technivation it was really good to be able to demonstrate how to remove metal and also to show how the equipment is actually installed on a working moulding machine,” explained Tom.  “We supplied the FF Drawer Filter Magnets to PTIC so that the importance of metal removal is included in the training programmes.”

New UK Drinks Container Recycling Strategy Creates ‘Bottleneck’

UK Waste Plan Means More Recycling Plants

The UK Government’s announcement that people in England will soon have to pay a deposit when they buy drinks bottles and metal cans [28th March 2018] in an attempt to curb waste is expected to create a ‘bottleneck’ in the recycling chain.  Scotland has previously announced plans for a deposit return scheme and Wales has launched a study to consider it.

drinking-water-filter-singapore-1235578_960_720Other countries, including Sweden and Germany, already operate schemes where people pay a deposit when purchasing some drinking containers.

This latest announcement may be considered as a knee-jerk reaction to the global dismay about plastic waste following the airing of the Blue Planet II series.   Environment Secretary Michael Gove said there was no doubt that plastic was “wreaking havoc” on the marine environment and discarded plastic bottles and cans “end up dumped on pavements and lobbed into rivers, lakes and the sea”.

Although most people agree with the sentiment of the new policy, there are serious concerns about the UK’s ability to handle the increase in the amount of plastic waste.  The UK Government has not outlined how the recovered plastics will be recycled and how it will work financially.

Already, since China banned plastic waste imports [January 2018] there have been concerns about how the UK will manage plastic waste, especially as 2.7 million tonnes was shipped to China since 2012.  This new policy will potentially reduce the amount of plastic going to landfill, but also add to the amount of plastic waste that was previously shipped to China.  That equates to a lot of plastic waste.

Are There Enough Plastic Recycling Plants?

An increase in recovered plastic waste means that there needs to be a significant growth in the number of specialist recycling plants.  However, profitably operating a plastics recycling plant has proven to be difficult, with many plants being commissioned and then closed or sold within a very short space of time.

There has been an established network for the collection and successful recycling of steel and aluminium beverage cans for decades.  Part of the reason for the success is that both materials are easily recyclable, using a combination of Magnetic Separators and Eddy Current Separators, and converted into new steel and aluminium.  Presently, the same cannot be said for plastic.

The UK Government may decide to commit all the collected deposits to expanding and funding a network of specialist recycling plants, although where this money will go is is presently unclear.  It will be interesting to hear if there are plans to invest in the development of technology to enable successfully and financially viable mixed plastic recycling.  Also, will product designers now be forced to consider the recyclability of a product rather than the aesthetic appearance?

Certainly, a holistic plan is needed before this new initiative is put in place.

Is Recycling in UK Reaching Crisis Point?

Troubled Times for the UK and European Recycling Sectors

There appears to be a distinct disconnect between the political rhetoric and what is actually happening in the waste and recycling sector.  In the UK, Theresa May has pledged to eliminate plastic waste by 2042 and the European government has ‘declared war’ on plastic waste setting a target of having all packaging reusable or recyclable by 2030.

China WasteHowever, it has been reported [BBC News 1st March 2018] that waste recycling rates in the UK are falling for over 14 million households.  Also, China’s import restrictions on waste materials has put tremendous pressure on the recycling sector and it is anticipated that UK firms are likely to close [MRW].

The global problem of Plastic Waste has been at the top of the media agenda since the BBC’s Blue Plant II showed how it is contaminating our world and endangering our wildlife.  The noise from environmental activists and the general population has been deafening.

Surfer and Plastic WastePoliticians had to respond and announced targets for dealing with plastic waste.  However, the announcements do not include details about how these tough targets are going to be met.

In the UK, we presently recycle 29% of our plastic, although this figure is presently under debate [Industry ‘exaggerates plastics recycling success’ – BBC News 6th March 2018].  The target for 2020 is 57% and 0% by 2042.  The present recycling rate is low due to the complexity of the process and economics.  Magnetic SeparatorsEddy Current Separators and Metal Detectors remove metal and there is other technology to sort by colour and plastic type.  However, producing a useful plastic from waste that can be introduced as a raw material into primary plastic production (such as happens with aluminium and steel) is presently exceptionally difficult.  Contamination at the collection source, during transportation, and during process is one of many problems.  Until those issue are addressed, plastic waste will continue to pose a problem.

The solution has been shipping mixed waste materials to China and other countries for manual separation.  This is no longer an option, at least in China.

A cohesive plan of action is required, with the setting of realistic targets reflecting the technology and economics of waste recycling.  At present, it appears that politicians are just making statements to appease the masses.

Contamination Hinders Plastic Recycling

Metal Contamination is Another Problem Facing Plastic Recycling Companies

The environmental impact of poorly managing plastic waste has been in the headlines since the BBC’s Blue Planet II series was aired at the end of 2017.  In January, Theresa May made a pledge to eliminate the UK’s plastic waste by 2042, although the detail of the plan has yet to be unveiled.  Less than a week later and the EU ‘declared war on plastic waste’, announcing the intention to ensure that every piece of packaging on the continent is reusable or recyclable by 2030.

plastic-trash-in-oceans-and-waterways

Presently, there is an unprecedented negative feeling towards plastics.  However, plastic is and will continue to be one of the most versatile and useful materials available.  This versatility is down to the wide range of plastic types, as can be seen in any household.  Plastic is present in food packaging, mobile phone casings, tables, chairs, DVDs, televisions, and many other everyday items that would not exist unless made of plastic.

Certainly, product designers need to give recyclability a higher priority and this change in attitude is required for all materials and not just for plastics.  At present, plastic is the environmental villain.

Effectively managing plastic waste is not a new problem for the UK.  With the introduction of Material Reclamation Facilities (MRFs) in the 1990s, there was an abundance of segregated materials, including plastics, for which there was no end market.  These were stored or exported overseas, and there were reports of warehouses in Germany stocked full of unrecyclable waste materials.

This resulted in changes in the EU definition of ‘waste’ that prevented the easy movement of secondary materials within Europe, but this did not address the main problem.  The market for materials such as secondary plastics did not exist.  Advances have been made and there are products being made out of recycled waste plastics (e.g. furniture) and even plastic roads.

Technology has advanced, but the main problems remain.  Complex recycling plants are now able to separate different types of plastic by colour and type, but the process is not perfect.  To further complicate the problem, other non-related materials, such as metal and even building materials (e.g. concrete and bricks), contaminate the vast majority of waste plastic packaging.

Contaminated Pre-Sorted Waste

Most plastic packaging enters the recycling process as pre-sorted household waste.  The specification of what materials are mixed in a single recycling bag depends on the recycling strategy of the local council and varies considerably across the UK and Europe.

Recycled UK Bunting Magnetic Separators-3On arrival at a MRF, the collected materials are then separated into metal, plastic, cardboard, and any other materials defined within the local strategy.  Separation of these materials is achieved using either technology or, more commonly, a combination of separation equipment and human pickers.  This is a dirty, difficult, and unpopular environment in which to work.

The ability to successfully separate the materials is compromised by the presence of other waste.  These materials have been incorrectly added to recycling bags at the household or during collection and include used-nappies, food waste, paint tins, and other problematic materials.

At the MRF, metal packaging (e.g. steel and aluminium beverage and food cans) is commonly recovered using Overband Magnets positioned over the main feed conveyor prior to the picking line.  Other materials are manually handpicked and stored separately.  Up until recently, the mix of plastic packaging could then be sent to a specialist UK plastic recycling plant or overseas to countries such as China.

Contaminated Plastic Waste

Since 2012, British companies have shipped more than 2.7m tonnes of plastic scrap to mainland China and Hong Kong.  However, this only accounts for two-thirds of all the plastic waste exported from the UK.

Plastic waste sent to China is, where possible, commonly hand-sorted into individual plastic types (i.e. removing plastic tops by hand), with all other added contamination removed manually.  This involves a huge, low-paid workforce.  Similar manually based recycling operations in Europe would be prohibitively costly with unacceptable working conditions.

In December 2017, China announced that in early 2018 it will stop importing “foreign garbage” stating that such waste materials was commonly contaminated with “large amounts of dirty waste or even hazardous wastes”.

Specialist plastic packaging recycling plants in the UK have been under intense financial pressure for many years.  There have been calls for better legislation and Government support, but too many plastic recycling plants open and are then forced to close due to being financial unviable.

A typical plastic recycling operation needs a complex system of separation equipment.  The plant also needs to be able to adapt to huge variations in the nature of the delivered waste plastic.  There are also strict environmental regulations on storing and handling waste plastic.  Such plants are expensive to install and operate.

Hanbury Plastics Bunting Overband Magnet-1

Early in the process, ferrous and non-ferrous metal contamination is removed from the waste plastic using Magnetic Separators and Eddy Current Separators.  Initially, after the plastic is released from the compacted bale, the waste is fed into a primary shredder.  To protect the shredder from damage, an Overband Magnet is suspended across the feed conveyor and removes large ferrous metal.

At this stage, the type of ferrous metal contamination found in the plastic is diverse and often surprising.  It can include metal packaging miss-sorted at the MRF, heavy lumps of iron that increase the weight of the plastic bale, and metal picked up during transportation.  There have even been reports of car engine blocks.  Reasonably sized items of cast iron entering the shredder will cause significant and costly damage and result in the plant being closed until a repair is possible.

After the primary shredder, the waste plastic has been reduced in size and many contaminants liberated.  This shredded waste plastic is fed onto another Magnetic Separator, commonly a Drum Magnet or Pulley Magnet, to remove liberated smaller ferrous metals.

Metal Found in Plastic Recycling Bunting Magnetics-3The type of ferrous metal separated at this stage includes steel spanners, nuts, bolts, screws, fine metal wires, springs, iron shards, fine ferrous dust, and chunks of stainless steel.  Most of the ferrous metal was not part of the original plastic packaging and has been introduced between disposal and processing.

The cleansed plastic waste then passes over an Eddy Current Separator to remove non-ferrous metals.  Commonly separated metals include aluminium beverage cans, foils, tubes, and even window frames.

After the metal contamination has been removed, the plastic waste moves to the next stage in the plant, which could be further separation of contamination or sorting by colour or plastic type.

The high level of metal contamination highlights the challenges facing waste plastic processors.  It was one of many contaminants, not present in the original plastic packaging, that have to be removed.

Before UK and EU Government officials make recycling pledges to pacify environmentalists, they need to consider the practicalities and difficulties faced when processing waste plastic packaging.  Contamination will always be present, and is one of the reasons for exporting this difficult waste material overseas.  Reducing such contamination will make it easier to recycle waste plastic, but there is no clear strategy to achieve this goal at present.

Prime Location for Bunting at RWM 2018

Magnetic Separators Greet Visitors at RWM

Bunting Magnetics and Master Magnets have booked the stand greeting visitors as they enter through the main entrance at this year’s RWM recycling and waste exhibition (NEC, Birmingham, UK 12-13 September 2018).

“After last week’s RWM Digital Marketing Masterclass in London, we got together with Nick and the new RWM team and talked through the best way forward,” explained Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales.  “Everyone wants this show to be a success and so have taken the bold step of securing the stand opposite the entrance to the show.  Our aim is to have our stand full of working equipment to immediately capture the imagination of the visitors.”

Bunting Master Magnets at RWM17
The Bunting & Master Magnets stand at RWM17

Bunting Magnetics has been gradually increasing their presence at the show over the past 5 years.

“We started with a small stand at the back of the hall,” said Dave.  “Over the past few years our presence in the recycling industry has grown, especially when we acquired Master Magnets [January 2017].  And our stand has gradually increased in size and moved towards the show entrance.”

On the larger stand, that will greet visitors to RWM, Bunting and Master Magnets plan to exhibit a wide range of Metal Separation equipment including:

“Exhibiting working equipment at exhibitions has always worked for us,” said Dave.  “Seeing is believing and that starts at an exhibition.  Last year, visitors saw the separation capabilities of our Stainless Steel Separator and Eddy Current Separator and subsequently conducted tests in our laboratory at Redditch.  We want to demonstrate what is possible with our new and innovative technology.”

The stand at RWM18 will be the largest Bunting and Master Magnets has ever had in Europe.

“As one of the biggest manufacturers of metal separation equipment in the world, we wanted to make a bold statement.  We have some great ideas for visitor engagement at RWM and are already starting on our planning!”

A Digital Future for RWM?

A New Vision for the UK’s Leading Waste and Recycling Exhibition

The message from the RWM digital marketing masterclass was clear.  The new owners, PRYSM Media, are going to do everything they can to breathe life into the event and turn it into a ‘must-attend’ show for anyone involved in waste management and recycling.

RWM Digital Masterclass 2018_02_06

The event was held at the impressive Google London HQ in St Giles High Street.  The new RWM management team, led by Nick Woore and Hassan Allan, spoke passionately about their successes at other business shows and outlined their plans to turn around the fortunes of the UK’s number one waste and recycling exhibition.

The presentation highlighted the need for exhibitors to get involved and take some responsibility for promoting the event before, during and after the date.  The new team have made a wide range of digital marketing tools available.  The message was clear – by working together, we can make RWM work.

Digital marketing gurus from Google and then Adtrak took to the stage. They talked about the trends of website traffic and methods that are proven to increase engagement and stimulate website activity and, ultimately, increase business.

One surprising statistic was the growth in website views on mobile phones, although our own data does not appear to support these figures.  Google talked about ways to maximise a company’s presence on their platform and also highlighted the need to be visual with photographs and video.  It was surprising to hear that YouTube was actually the World’s second largest search engine.

Adtrak got the whole audience involved with multi-choice questions and delivered some startling statistics:

  • The optimum page loading speed for a website is 2.4 seconds;
  • 41% of searches resulted in a click on an advertised entry (i.e. those commonly at the top or bottom of a page);
  • 75% of people do not search past page 1;

RWM17 Tweet

There is no doubt that this was a positive step forward for RWM.  The organisers appear more enthusiastic and have a plan.  However, the message was clear – we as exhibitors also need to take action, promoting the event and engaging in digital marketing.  This might sound like common sense as it should already be a key part of any company’s marketing strategy.  For many it is not.  Digital marketing remains a mystery for many of the exhibitors and visitors of RWM, especially in the waste and recycling sector.  The new RWM team reported that the 409 exhibitors posted just over 500 #RWM17 tweets per day at the last RWM.  The 2017 organisers tweeted prolifically and many companies tweeted more than once and so the use of this platform was actually very limited.

Importantly, the new RWM team will provide help and support.

The recycling and waste industry and CIWM needs a UK based event and hopefully the PRYSM Media team can deliver. Irrespective of whether RWM is held every year or for two days instead of three, the industry sector needs to support the new organisers. Together maybe we can make this work.

Search For Recycling Industry Representation in Germany

Germany Based Representative Required to Support Developing Business in the Recycling Sector

With the expanded Bunting and Master Magnets product portfolio of Magnetic Separators, Eddy Current Separators and Metal Detectors, the search has started for a new representative in Germany for the recycling sector.

“With the addition of the Master Magnets range of separation equipment, we have identified exciting opportunities in the recycling sector in Germany,” explained Dave Hills, Bunting’s Head of Sales.

Bunting and Master Magnets are exhibiting at the international waste and recycling exhibition IFAT (May 14-18, Munich, Germany) and are looking to find and appoint a new local representative before the start of the event.

“We now have one of the most extensive and complete ranges of Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors in the world.  We are already exporting separation equipment to Germany and other countries, but recognise that we need a locally based representative,” said Dave.  “This is a great opportunity and we are looking forward to developing a long-term relationship with a recycling industry specialist.”

The expanded range of separation equipment used in the recycling sector includes:

Stainless Steel Separator

The revolutionary Stainless Steel Separator is installed after primary Magnetic Separation and Eddy Current Separation to remove either weakly magnetic materials from the primary product to produce a clean recycled material (eg UPVC window frames, recycled plastics, etc), or to recover valuable materials (eg stainless steel and PCBs).

Master Magnets Recycling Lives-7172Eddy Current Separators

The Eddy Current Separator (ECS) is an advanced metal sorting unit that is capable of separating non-ferrous metals such as aluminium and copper from dry recyclables.  A mobile Metal Separation Module incorporating the Eddy Current Separator and a high intensity Magnetic Drum (called the ‘Mastertrax‘) has proven very popular.

Permanent Overband Magnets
