2. WHAT IS PLASTIC RECYCLING?
Plastic recycling is the process of recovering
scrap or waste plastics and reprocessing
the material into useful products.
Sometimes it can be completely different
from their original state.
Plastic recycling includes melting down
unused plastic type material and then
casting them as useful plastics.
3. Things Needed
• Business license
• Plastic washers
• Solar dryers
• Large Vehicle
4. • Initial investment upto 8 million (excluding the cost of
land) with 2 million variable cost.
• Atleast 1 acre land is required.
• Rate of bottle varies with the season; in summers bottles
are relatively cheaper than in winters.
• Bottles cost 70/kg in summers and upto 85/kg in winters.
• Recycling cost is around 45/kg & is sold around 63/kg.
• Maximum production in a day can be 2.5 tonn--- revenue
collected 5-6 lacs per months.
• The vision of the manufacturing company is to make
profit 13% in year one, then exceeding 20% annually
starting in year two.
6. PROCESS :
• Before recycling,
most plastics are
sorted according to
their resin type. In the
reclaimers used the
code (RIC), a method
of categorization of
polymer types, which
was developed by the
Society of the Plastics
Industry in 1988
• Resin : a solid or
organic polymer used
Type of plastic
PETE Polyethylene terephthalate
Clarity, strength, toughness,
barrier to gas and moisture.
PE-HD High-density polyethylene
resistance to moisture,
permeability to gas.
PVC Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) Versatility, ease of blending,
PE-LD Low-density polyethylene
Ease of processing, strength,
toughness, flexibility, ease of
sealing, barrier to moisture
PP Polypropylene (PP) Strength, toughness,
resistance to heat, chemicals,
grease and oil, versatile,
barrier to moisture
PS Polystyrene (PS) Versatility, clarity, easily
10. Stage 1 : Sorting the plastic
Plastic waste needs to be collected by the
recycling company, once the plastic
arrives at the recycling plant the first stage
begins to sort the plastic into the specific
In this methods sorting plastic waste into
different categories before going to the
next stage in the recycling process.
11. Stage 2: Washing Waste
• Once plastic waste has been identified
and separated into one of its many forms
the cleaning process can begin, this
usually starts with washing to remove
paper labels, adhesives and other
impurities, all the labels on your plastic
containers, bottles and even your wheelie
bin need to be completely removed as
these will lower the quality of the finished
12. Stage 3: Shredding the Plastic
The shredding stage
is when plastic
waste is taken and
conveyor belts or
directly into huge
hoppers that funnel
the clean scrap
metal teeth that rip
the plastic into
small pellets which
are bagged up
13. Stage 4: Identify and classify the
Once the shredded plastic has been bagged
it is then chemically tested and labelled as
to its exact specification, this R-Grade of
plastic can be used to add to a mix of
virgin plastic in the manufacturing run,
alternatively the R-Grade plastic can be
Stage 5: Extruding
This is the final stage in
the recycling process
of plastic. This
shredded plastic and
extruding into plastic
roll stock sheet.
This machine is quite
expensive so we'll
have it done from
15. Advantages of Plan:
• Raw material is available.
• Reduce the waste of PET
• Reduce environmental pollution,
specially soil pollution.
• Recycling Plastics Conserves Energy
and Natural Resources.
• Recycling Plastics is Relatively Easy
16. Market Summary:
• The supply of roll stock sheet as raw at the
Thermofermers Plastic Industry. e.g B2B
Pakistan, INSTAPLAST, Synthetic Products
• In some plastic mills e.g Pakistan Plastic
Manufacturers Association, A.H.Y Plastic
Industry, We Buy - Shazil Pakistan Pvt Ltd.
• In some other stores (depending on demand).
17. MARKETING BUSINESS
• In addition to marketing our recycling
business using traditional methods, such
as posting fliers, advertising in print,
creating a website and posting in online
news publications, we'll also consider
digital, mobile marketing and social-media
18. TIP WE GOT FROM THOSE
ALREADY IN THIS BUSINESS
You may want to see if you can lease the
equipment rather than buy the equipment
and machinery you need to start and run
the recycling plant. Leasing the machinery
may be more cost effective than
purchasing the equipment and
maintenance, and repair plans are
typically included in leasing plans, while
purchased machines are your
responsibility for repair and maintenance
