Axion Engineering is introducing a range of recycling and recovery services at the K Show 2010 in Dusseldorf, where it is co-exhibiting with German machinery partner Plato Technology on stand 10E48.

Axion is the UK’s approved agent for the supply of Plato’s dry-cleaning equipment, a specialised system for the removal of surface dirt and labels from shredded waste plastics.

Plato developed its dry-cleaning process to tackle the plastic washing problems that arose from the German DSD waste recycling system.

The technology has been incorporated in a number of recycling solutions for clients across a range of plastics recovery tasks.

At the K Show, Axion will be building on its partnership with and introducing a wider range of recycling and recovery services that it can now offer under the Axion Engineering banner.

Case studies demonstrating specific examples of resource recovery and recycling solutions for clients from the automotive, bio-fuels and metals sectors will be available to visitors on the stand, where Axion staff will also answer queries.

During the show, Axion director Keith Freegard will be giving a talk on ’Understanding the plastics recycling industry value chain’ at the BPF-organised Sustainable Manufacturing Forum on 1 November.

His presentation will focus on the importance of controlled sorting and separation at the earliest possible stage, thereby increasing the value of the final product.

Tracing, tracking and recording methods will also be covered as part of the overall contribution to ’added value’ along the supply chain.

As a Carbon Trust Footprint Expert Registered Consultant, Axion has launched a range of services to help companies calculate the environmental impact of their products or processes.

It can assist with various levels of footprinting from rapid ’hotspot analysis’ to comprehensive and certified footprints for external communication.

Axion Recycling Ltd was formed in 2001 by directors Keith Freegard and Roger Morton to develop and operate innovative processing solutions for recycling waste materials. Axion Polymers and Axion Consulting are two companies that have grown out of this business.

Axion Polymers' state-of-the-art factory in Salford processes waste plastics from WEEE primary treatment plants into high grade polymers. Based in Bramhall, Stockport, Axion Consulting was created in response to increased demand from a wide range of clients within the recycling and process industries for the practical development of new processing and collection methods.

Axion Polymers supplies polystyrenes and polyolefins under two brand names: Axplas and Axpoly. Axplas covers a range of general-purpose recycled plastics for less demanding applications. The Axpoly brand refers to technically specified polymer grades that satisfy more demanding extrusion and injection-moulding requirements.

Customers can select exactly the correct grade of recyclate for their individual requirements. This also provides greater confidence in product quality and its ultimate performance in new recycled goods; whether that is for compost bins, pipes or plasma TV stands. Polymers are supplied with datasheets providing technical specifications and product safety information.

Axion Consulting’s disciplines cover all aspects of waste recycling: from practical trials and process development for new recycling processes to more general chemical process design development.
