Recycling & Sustainability  

Recycling & sustainability

Euro Machinery aims to keep the used equipment in circulation and give it a second chance to be used in production. Our goal is to sell the best quality second-hand machinery for flexible plastic converting and recycling. Euro Machinery has over 25 years of experience and our main office is based in Denmark, with branch offices in Portugal, Spain and Poland. We import and export used quality machinery from factory to factory globally. 

When buying a second-hand machine, you extend the lifespan of an existing machine, and reduce the need for new machines to be produced. This helps to sustain resources, while also reducing the environmental impact of manufacturing. Moreover, used machines are often sold at a lower price than new machines, making it a more cost-effective and sustainable option for businesses or individuals that are looking to buy equipment. 

Second-hand plastic recycling

Euro Machinery buys and sells second-hand plastic recycling machines for both in-house recycling and post-consumer waste. In-house recycling is when companies reuse their own waste. This has a huge advantage, since the waste would be very little to not contaminated. On the other side there is post-consumer waste. 
There is much concern about post-consumer plastic waste. Analysis shows that in 2021, recycling rate of plastic wastes was around, 32.5% in the EU and the rest end up on their journey in landfills and oceans that lead to environmental pollution which is a crucial global concern. Therefore, governments implement regulations to minimize environmental waste as much as possible and improve the process of waste management and recycling.  
Analysis shows that the recycled plastics market is projected to grow from USD 27.9 billion in 2021 to USD 43.5 billion by 2026. (Global Recycled Plastics Market Report 2022). Recycling companies have only to gain from such numbers which contribute not only to their business but also to the environment and society.  
Much of the plastic waste worldwide comes from the industrial sectors like packaging and other sectors,  
around 302 million tons a year. Besides industrial plastic waste, it also comes from municipal solid waste where there are 2 billion tons a year and the number increases.  
This waste consists of diverse types of plastics such as Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET or PETE), High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC or Vinyl), Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE), Polypropylene (PP), Polystyrene (PS or Styrofoam) and other materials. It requires good sorting and cleaning of these materials before they are recycled in quality granules.
