Model Group to build new recycling plant

From 2017, Model will become the only company in Switzerland to recycle drinks cartons and water-insoluble papers.

At its Weinfelden site, the Model Group is in-vesting CHF 35 million in a new material proces­sing plant for drinks cartons and other papers which do not easily dissolve in water.

Commissioning is scheduled for the first quarter of 2017, after which there will be a fine-tuning phase of approximately three months. The new facility will be able to handle up to 75,000 tonnes of drinks cartons and water-insoluble papers per year.

Model notes that there are still a number of technical challenges to be tackled before this pioneering system is fully functional, however.
