Traditionally, plastic recycling processes involve using a comprehensive large amount of water. To avoid this waste materials, Ak Inovex from Mexico developed a new green technology that doesn't require liquids, and has the capacity to process materials such as styrofoam, polystyrene and Stomach muscles using the same type of customizable machinery.

The technology produced by Marco Adame, founder of Ak Inovex, can process more than 90 percent of any kind of plastic, avoids water waste and reduces production costs by half without reducing the quality of the pellets by avoiding stages with severe changes in temperature.

Marco Adame said compared to the original procedure for plastic pellet extruder obtaining recycled beads involves cleaning and then milling plastic containers. Nevertheless, this sort of plastic gets the distinction to be hygroscopic, so it has to be dehydrated so that it could be crystallized; this calls for applying heat at 180ยบ C and cooling the material with water then.

However, the introduction of AK Inovex performs all this process without drinking water, so it would go to the formation of recycled beads directly. As a result the energy usage is normally decreased by half, and also the physical space necessary to perform the operation is less as the operational system is smaller. The production of pellets is usually of better quality similarly, a situation which makes the recycling process more profitable.

"Ak Inovex has a pending patent sign up of the 3 technologies that integrate the development, which are responsible for cooling the plastic through connection with special walls and form the plastic beads," the founder of the ongoing company explained.

The benefit of this technology is its ability to process any kind of plastic, such as for example styrofoam, polystyrene, PET and ABS; the difference lies in the mechanism, since there is a special piece for each type of material. The production capability of plastic beads can be of two plenty and the group is currently working on increasing it to ten.


For next year, the company really wants to transformation its business strategy and increase an ecological washing machine for plastics that uses a special biodetergent, that will reduce the cost of operation more also.

Marco Adame commented that during their participation in the Cleantech Challenge Mexico, a competition to promote the development of green companies, he previously contact with the ALINSA group, that is engaged in the manufacture of friendly cleaning products using biodegradable chemicals environmentally.

Following the competition, the two companies began talking and joined efforts with the purpose of integrating the ecological washing machine system using degradable plastic substances in under 28 days without affecting the environment, replacing lye hence, which is the existing substance useful for washing the materials.
