Mauser: Recycling Plant in Brazil
Mauser NCG, the reconditioning subsidiary National Container Group (NCG) of Mauser-Werke GmbH, Bruehl, Germany, expands the company’s reconditioning plant in Brazil. By opening a new factory building adjacent to its location in Taubaté near São Paulo, the company will be able to offer full recycling services to its customers in the region. The equipment was relocated from Barra do Pirai and will be refurbished with a more advanced technology. In the new building, Mauser NCG will process all types of used industrial packaging made of HDPE (high density polyethylene) – from 0.5 liter solutions up to 1,000 liter Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBC) – and transform it in pelletized recycled resin. This PCR will then be reused at the company’s Brazilian production sites to produce jerrycans, IBC accessories, plastic drums, as well as inner layers for plastic drums. The plant opening is expected for the early fourth quarter of 2011 with trial runs from September 5, 2011.
