EVOWASH™ - Mechanical Recycling Auxiliaries
Re-defining what high-quality washing means for plastics recycling
To enable the transition to a circular economy, the waste value chain requires increasing quality and consistency in recycled products. EVOWASH™ mechanical recycling auxiliaries include an industry-leading range of proven detergents and antifoam agents designed to deliver exceptional PCR resins. That means raising the bar for recycled products to meet the strongest quality standards. We achieve this by working in four dimensions:
Maximize Water Circularity
EVOWASH™ Detergents and Antifoams are designed to deliver recycled plastic with the highest quality while maximizing the reuse of process water. Our products have performed successfully in recycling systems with discharge cycles above seven days without impacting compliance with local regulations for process effluents.
An evolution in process
Through collaborative innovation across the globe, a growing family of EVOWASH™ Detergents and Antifoams is being developed to address the diverse set of challenges in plastics recycling. From food grade to industrial grade and from Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) and High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), to PET and Polypropylene (PP), our technology is helping to evolve the industry.
In this line, EVOWASH™ will include two fully formulated, ready-to-use process aids, EVOWASH™ Detergents and EVOWASH™ Defoamers to enable the reduction of surface contaminants such as adhesives in up to 95%, and provide higher purity in the final resins, while optimizing foam dosage, water circularity and costs.
