Birch Plastic partners with rotational molding companies to help them reach their plastic recycling goals.
One challenge the rotational molding industry faces is having the ability to reuse their scrap plastic that is generated during production. Rotational molders typically have to find a company to grind the plastic, compound it into pellets and then pulverize the resin into 35 mesh powder. Most of the time, this process involves serval locations and multiple vendors. After you factor in the freight and time dedicated to it, rotational molders often end up selling off their scrap parts because of all the work involved and freight costs. Birch has solved this problem with our closed-loop recycling program.
Birch Plastics Closed-Loop Recycling Program
Birch has all the equipment under one roof to make turnkey materials for rotational molders. We have a giant shredder, several grinders, multiple extrusion compounding lines, pulverizing capabilities and an extensive polymer laboratory for quality control testing. Birch offers the ability to custom color and add any additives you would like from UV stabilizers, antioxidants and antimicrobial, or anything else your product might require.
How our closed-loop recycling program works:
Send us your plastic regrind or your parts for us to grind.
Birch pelletizes your regrind. At this time, we can add color concentrate, UV stabilizer, antioxidants or any other additives your material requires to stay in spec.
After the plastic pellets are made, we pulverize your material to the most common size, 35 mesh powder. If you have another size requirement, we can accommodate that as well. Your material will be packaged in Gaylord boxes or super sacks, depending on your needs.
Your material is sent back to you ready to be introduced back into your process. Our program will help with your green initiative and help you lower your cost by substituting a percentage of the recycled plastic resin in place of your higher priced virgin resin.
