SUEZ opened Europe's most advanced recycling facility for lightweight packaging in Ölbronn, Germany. With an annual processing capacity of 100,000 tonnes, this recycling facility with cutting-edge technology meets new German requirements by optimising the sorting of waste streams for a better waste recovery. The packaging waste collected by local authorities are constantly growing and diversifying. This is why, users and local authorities have a key role to play in improving sorting in order to meet increasingly ambitious European targets for recycling and preparation for reuse set at 70% of municipal waste by 2030. In this context, the waste management stage is an essential link in increasing the proportion of recyclable waste. Since January, 1st 2019, German legislation has strongly encouraged the development of recycling activities with a recycling rate now set at 50% for lightweight packaging in circulation and 58.5% for plastics. At European level, legislation stipulates to recycle 65% of municipal waste by 2035. Anticipating the entry into force of this legislation, SUEZ has developed a recycling facility that brings together the very latest solutions. Thanks to an innovative optical sorting system, the Ölbronn facility can accurately sort up to 14 different categories of material, including 9 types of plastic. The annual processing capacity (100,000 tonnes) is equivalent to the quantity of lightweight packaging thrown away each year by more than 3 million German citizens. In order to achieve this volume, the plant is based on highly innovative and largely automated sorting technology. Industry 4.0 moves into sorting for instance by including predictive maintenance, 21 camera-based near-infrared scanners for automated sorting of recyclable materials and fully automated weighing process and pressing of the sorted recyclable materials. Data transparency plays a major role. The delivery of material to a 9,000 m³, 8 m deep bunker is unique in Europe for a lightweight packaging sorting plant. The intermediate storage in the deep bunker is particularly low-noise and low-odour, fireproof and ensures a higher level of occupational safety through a strict separation between delivery traffic, input management and plant loading. By optimising the identification, separation and preparation of materials in order to optimise their recovery, the recycling is more efficient making it possible to obtain a secondary raw material, the quality of which is the same as or higher than that of the virgin material. In 2018, SUEZ has sorted up around 8 million tons of waste in Europe.
