07.09.2020 New Slovenian plastics recycling plant

Lindner Washtech, Grossbottwar, Germany – a subsidiary of Austria’s Lindner-Recyclingtech – recently supplied processing systems to Dinos d.o.o. , of Ljubljana, Slovenia, which have been installed in its new recycling plant for processing industrial plastic waste, in particular plastic film. On centre stage of the new facility are a universal and state-of-the-art washing system from Lindner Washtech with a range of new and improved components, such as a Micromat 2000 shredder, a highly effective pre-wash unit Floater extend and a mechanical dryer of the Loop Dryer series. The washed flakes are regranulated by an Erema Intarema 1714 TVEplus extruder. The plant has been up and running around the clock five days a week for several weeks now.

With 19 waste depots in operation, Dinos is considered one of the largest waste management and recycling companies in Slovenia. The company collects and recycles non-ferrous materials (glass, wood, plastic and paper), metals (all types of old and new industrial scrap, steel, stainless steel and cast iron) and non-ferrous metals (aluminium, copper, nickel and tin). After collecting the waste material, it is sorted and then processed. Dinos has been part of the German Scholz Group since 2012.

“In the past 15 years, in the plastics sector Dinos focused mainly on collection and pressing or shredding”, explained plant manager Jure Jambrovic, “But due to the changing situation on the world market where the placement of plastic waste has become increasingly difficult, we have decided to start our own recycling line. This will enable us to offer the market a high quality end product.” The primary materials processed are LDPE and LLDPE clear wrap (mainly packaging films from the industrial sector and supermarkets), mixed post-consumer LDPE films, HDPE drums and HDPE canisters (primarily post-commercial packaging) and PP (crates and packaging).

At Dinos about 8-12t of plastic regranulate is processed during an eight-hour shift
