New Materials Recycling Technologies

As the world becomes increasingly aware of the benefits of recycling, more efficient technologies are being developed to process waste collection, producing usable materials from kitchens to paving. In the UK, for example, ways have been found to process a wide variety of wastes, from yoghurt boxes and coffee cups to large cruise ships. A waste removal company in London brings us details about waste processing in the UK.

In the UK, around three million household refrigerators have been assembled for recycling at a specially constructed facility in the northeast of England.

The plant is located in Grantham, Lincolnshire, and is designed to separate refrigerated parts and process plastics and metals into materials for sale. Before disassembling, refrigerators remove the harmful gases they contain.

Atmospheric gases are discharged into the catalyst to be converted into salt solutions, thus dampening their harmful properties. Further, refrigerators are dismantled and plastics and metals are processed into reusable materials.

As a result of its special technology, the plant has also attracted attention abroad for household waste recycling. 

A British couple has set up a separate line for the production of kitchen building materials, using recycled plastic yoghurt boxes. The minced boxes are thrown into a form to be pressed by heating under a weight of 80 tons in plastic wrap.

The surface of these sheets obtained from recycled material is smooth, the new material is strong and can be glued and glued like all other materials used for modelling kitchens, but at a much lower cost.

The couple has also created a material from coffee cups for kitchen counters as well as used plastic cell phone covers to produce solid cutting boards.

These building materials, produced from recycled materials, have aroused worldwide interest in the wave of efforts for environmentally friendly processes.

This facility with the latest recycling technology can process up to 2500 tons of materials per week.

The plant takes construction waste that was previously buried in the fields used for this purpose, separates and pastures them, and then processes them into materials used for construction projects.

The plant was awarded a large grant from the British Waste and Resources program, which aims to reduce landfills and produce recycled materials for new projects, such as where waste is used to build new roads.

With such modern facilities, other standards are set for the reduction, reuse and recycling of various material wastes to reduce the impact of waste collection sites.

Even politicians, environmental groups and union leaders in Britain have joined forces to push for the country’s ships to be recycled within the European Union rather than in third-world countries. At the end of the depreciation period, the vessels are sold for their precious metal. However, many older ships contain harmful materials, such as lead, asbestos, and others.

During the unregulated dismantling process, these toxic materials end up in the surrounding waters and the body of workers, bringing serious consequences for human health and the environment.

Shipwreck parks like this are found off the coast of many Third World countries, where teenage children also work in unsafe conditions.

Environmental groups have called on the government to build ship recycling plants in the UK to end dangerous ship dismantling practices.
