Consumption of alcoholic beverages during the pandemic changed. The hospitality industry took a huge hit as in-person dining became less of a reality. According to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS), the industry “experienced solid growth in 2020” thanks to some creativity on behalf of state legislators to make curbside cocktails and to-go options a possibility.
This is where the cycle begins. At the Swedish company Veolia Recycling Plastics Sweden AB, waste bins, HDPE pipes and other contaminated hard plastic waste are turned into new raw material with the help of a WEIMA PowerLine 2500 shredder and downstream wash line.
In Exeter, UK, Devon Contract Waste recycles a wide variety of hard plastics. This includes not-so-everyday items such as fuel tanks, kayaks and road cones. The central component of the recycling plant is a WEIMA WLK 1500 single-shaft shredder.
Producing paper products generates a lot of waste. In the classic recycling cycle, the production waste or surplus is shredded and then returned to the production process. The Munich start-up company easy2cool has a different but equally sustainable use for paper waste. Using a WEIMA WLK 1500 Shredder, revolutionary and sustainable insulating elements are made from corrugated cardboard packaging.
