Exactly On Time For the Start Of the World Cup – First OFRU Solvent Recovery Plant in Durban Starts Running.

First OFRU treatment plant for liquid hazardous waste in Durban has started running.

Babenhausen, Hessen:  In Durban, South Africa, the first treatment plant for liquid hazardous waste was commissioned in June 2010. The type ASC-100 Recovery Plant for a local packaging factory was built in only three months. OFRU Recycling GmbH & Co. KG based in Babenhausen/Germany designed the plant.

Buyer and operator of the recycling plant is Tropic Plastics & Packaging Industries (PTY) Ltd. (www.tropicplastic.co.za), which is based in the city Durban with its colonial style influences.  Tropic Plastics produce packaging films for the packaging of white bread, pasta, rice, pulp products and various other convenience goods in Durban.  Flammable, environmentally hazardous solvents are used for the printing of labels and for packaging design in a machine-based printing process. These solvents had to be disposed of in an extensive and costly manner.  

The recycling plant was commissioned exactly on time for the Soccer World Cup, and recycles about 700 litres of solvents in 16 operating hours. The dirty solvents that result from the printing process are recycled in an environmentally friendly manner using a distillation process and can then be re-used in the factory. A giant, important step in the right direction to encourage the issue of recycling management in South Africa.
