The demand for recycling machines is rising in Southeast Asia, as seven Polystar recycling lines have been installed in three of the largest high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP) film/bag manufacturers in Indonesia.
The top three bag producers who sell most of their products to the domestic market, combine for a monthly production of over 8,500 tons. The seven Polystar machines are now processing nearly 1,000 tons of post-industrial waste per month, according to the Taiwan-based machinery supplier.
"We fell in love with the compact design of the Polystar line at first sight. The machine looked robust and the design is simple and user-friendly," said Mr. Hendrix, Production Manager of Solo's largest HDPE film producer. "High and stable output, superior pellets quality is the reason why we've continued to work with Polystar."
The company has purchased its second Polystar recycling line in 2016 after having worked with the first one since 2014.
"The Polystar recycling machines are extremely easy to operate, which is ideal for our workers to process all the in-house waste," said Mr. Pandhika, Manager of the renowned T-shirt and garbage bag maker located in Jakarta. "The output of the machines is incredibly high and stable and we've already been running the machines for years."
The company is now equipped with two sets of Polystar HNT-120V recycling machine. It has been using high quality recycled pellets processed by Polystar machines back into film extrusion lines.
