Light packaging

Packaging recovery facilities from recyclable material collection system of the dry fraction

The main target of the classification and selection treatment plants for light packaging is the recovery of recyclable material and the reduction of the reject material sent to the landfill. These facilities, as in the case of urban waste pretreatment, can be fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual.

The automation degree facility is driven by different parameters: number of fractions to be recovered, purity degree, plant production capacity (taking into account the ELL low level) minimum reject production requirements and labor saving.

Bianna designs and builds the main equipment for these facilities (bag openers, ballistic separators, trommels, systems of pneumatic material collection, conveyor belts, bottle piercers…) and integrates the best available optical separation technologies, or screening technology, glass separation and magnetic and inductive separation. Or if needed, CSR production lines to get an optimal efficiency of the process.


Bianna designs and builds light packaging treatment plants by adding the best separation technologies on the market, depending on the peculiarity of the separate collection implemented in every country.


  • Polymers: PET, PEAD, PEBD, PP, Unit dose container, etc.
  • TetraBric packaging
  • Ferrous /non-ferrous metal
  • Paper, cardboard
  • CSR
  • Rejection


Dried recyclable materials

Classification and selection of “dry recyclable materials” plants (commingled) are mainly intended to recover the recyclable fractions of these materials and the reduction of the rejected portion sent to the landfill.

This kind of facilities mainly process glass, paper and cardboard. When glass is processed, it must be separated efficiently in the initial phase of the process not only to ensure the success of this selling sub-product, but also to avoid a high exhaustion rate in the installed equipment, the pollution of the rest of sub-products and its presence in the plant rejection as well.

Facilities, as in the case of mechanical treatment of urban waste or the packaging classification and selection plants, can be fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual. The degree of facility automation is defined by different parameters, mainly, the plant treatment capacity, fractions demands to be separated, their quality and the local labor cost.


Bianna designs highly efficient processes for the light mixed packaging, ensuring an optimal separation and recovery of the glass, paper and cardboard, plastic material, metals, etc. The best technology integration available on the mechanical treatment process guarantees a great and efficient performance of this kind of facilities.
