Plastic recycling is the process of
recovering scrap or waste plastics
and reprocessing the material into
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.
The initial cost for this business is about
Tk 1.5 million (15,00,000).
Other variable cost is about Tk 0.75
The vision of the manufacturing company is to make
profit 13% in year one, then exceeding 20% annually
starting in year two.
Before recycling, most plastics are sorted according to their resin
type. In the past, plastic reclaimers used the resin identification
code (RIC), a method of
categorization of polymer
types, which was developed
by the Society of the
Plastics Industry in 1988.
Type of plastic
PETE Polyethylene terephthalate
Clarity, strength, toughness, barrier
to gas and moisture.
PE-HD High-density polyethylene
resistance to moisture, permeability
PVC Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) Versatility, ease of blending,
PE-LD Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) 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 formed
O Other (often polycarbonate or
Dependent on polymers or
combination of polymers

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 types.
In this methods sorting plastic waste into different
categories before going to
the next stage in the recycling process.
Stage 2: Washing Waste Plastic
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
Stage 3: Shredding the Plastic
The shredding stage is when plastic waste is taken
and loaded onto conveyor belts or directly into huge
hoppers that funnel the clean scrap towards
rotating metal teeth that rip the plastic into small
pellets which are bagged up afterwards ready for
Stage 4: Identify and classify the Plastic
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 further recycled.
Stage 5: Extruding
This is the final stage in the recycling process of
plastic. This process involves melting clean
shredded plastic and extruding into plastic roll
The extruded sheet will be primary sold to
thermoformers who will convert it into high
visibility packaging, as well as laminators and
Advantages of Plan:
Raw material is available.
Reduce the waste of PET (Polyethylene
terephthalate) type material.
Reduce environmental pollution, specially soil
Recycling Plastics Conserves Energy and
Recycling Plastics is Relatively Easy.
The market from past to present –
The supply of roll stock sheet as raw at the Thermofermers Plastic Industry.
In some plastic mills , ex- Bangladesh Plastic Mill , Gazipur.
in some other stores (depending on demand).
