Estonia's Nelitaht launches new €1m recycling plant
Estonian recycling company Nelitäht OÜ has launched the Baltic States’ first plant for sorting, cleaning and recycling soiled post-consumer plastic packaging waste. The €1m project in Estonia’s capital Tallinn incorporates new infra-red technology in speedier and more efficient sorting and selection of suitable plastic bottles and other waste packaging. It has also provided the firm with a new washing, drying and packaging line to handle soiled waste. The Nelitäht facility, equipped with Italian and German supplied equipment, can now handle used containers including ketchup and mayonnaise sauce and shampoo soiled bottles which were previously rejected for incineration.
