GREEN Line Polymers of the United States has recently installed the largest NGR recycling machine ever built, a line capable of recycling well over two tons of plastics scrap materials an hour.

The installation will recycle high volumes of post-industrial PE scrap materials. The recycled product will then be a raw material building block for the next generation of corrugated piping products and water management solutions manufactured by Advanced Drainage Systems (ADS), of which Green Line Polymers is a subsidiary.Green Line is one of the largest recyclers of polymer products in North America.

ADS is a leading manufacturer of high-performance thermoplastic corrugated pipe and ancillary products, providing a comprehensive suite of water management products and superior drainage solutions for use in the construction and infrastructure marketplace.

NGR, based in Austria, just delivered its 1000th plastics recycling line. Key benefits for its customers include the ‘One-Step Technology’ which utilizes a shredder-feeder-extruder combination. This configuration ensures the highest energy efficiency while minimizing equipment footprint and reducing material handling steps.
