Are plastic blister packs recyclable?

Plastic blister packs are recyclable to extract aluminum and plastic because of their composition.

Plastic blister packs are widely used as packaging materials, and they can be found everywhere in pharmaceutical products, food, cosmetics, toys, gifts, tools and electromechanical parts. When plastic blister packs can no longer be used, they are without any use. Since the plastic blister packs are made of high quality PVC, PET, PP, PS, GAG and other plastic materials and some aluminum. These materials can be separated by physical means and recycled separately.

First, the plastic blister packs are broken into small particles by a knife crusher, and then passed through a mill to obtain a powdery mixture of aluminum and plastic. At this time, use a rotatory vibrating screen to check whether all the powders can reach the degree of separation. The coarse powder should return to the mill for grinding again until it passes through the vibrating screen. Finally, the effect of separating aluminum and plastic can be achieved with an electrostatic separator. With special dust removal device, the entire plastic blister packs recycling process does not cause any secondary pollution, and the aluminum-plastic separation rate is over 99%.

This plastic blister packs recycling method is more environmentally friendly than burial or incineration, and also has good economic benefits. Aluminum recycled can be used as a metal packaging material to form cans, lids, bottles, drums, and packaging foils. In addition, aluminum alloy is widely used in building structures, doors and windows, ceilings, decorative surfaces, etc. due to good corrosion resistance, sufficient strength, excellent industrial properties and welding performance. Plastics are more widely used in agriculture, industry, construction, packaging, cutting-edge industries, and people's daily lives. From plastic blister packs recycling, both social and economic benefit can be realized.
