According to statistics, the annual production of Tetra Pak in China is about 30 billion bags, with a recovery rate of only about 0.1%. According to relevant sources, this is mainly due to the low revenue and high decomposition costs of Tetra Pak recycling, as well as the relatively small number of Tetra Pak recycling enterprises in China. Some of the recycled milk boxes and beverage boxes are disposed of by paper recycling enterprises, resulting in insufficient utilization of plastic, aluminum foil, and other materials.
In fact, 75% of the ingredients in Tetra Pak bags are pulp, while the remaining 20% and 5% are plastic and aluminum foil, respectively. If fully decomposed and utilized, they are treasures that can be used to produce many items such as recycled paper, trash cans, hangers, table tennis rackets, pallets, and so on.
Our company has developed a dedicated equipment for waste Tetra Pak bags, which does not require the separation of pulp, plastic, and aluminum foil from Tetra Pak bags. Simply crushing them and adding them to the dedicated equipment can directly make products such as pallets.
