Growth in the recycling industry is due to increased awareness of both individuals and companies doing what is right to protect our environment. While metal is the most recycled material in the world, over the past 10 years the generation of paper, cardboard and plastic packaging has steadily increased creating urgent demands for more recycling processes.
Accepting the challenges collected through our customer interactions, Unibelt’s development team developed belts that are chemical attack resistant, flame retardant and oil resistant, require cut and wear resistance and meet the load requirement of heavy product transfer.
Solid Waste Sorting and Processing
Key areas of focus include:
Transfer of solid waste: belts designed for automated or manual loading conveyors
Sorting: belts designed for use in optical or manual sorted processes
Waste Separation: belts designed for use in Eddy Current sorting processes
End of line: belts designed for moving bulk accumulation
“Recycling conserves resources. When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources. It saves energy and helps protect the environment. This ‘life-cycle’ process of a material once again is known as a ‘circular economy’.”
