Product Details Supplier Info More products

Axion Consulting has launched a process equipment sales and design service for the primary processing of plastic waste materials.

The service offers process solutions to a wide range of waste challenges in the plastics sector, enabling recyclers to reduce disposal cost and increase yield and quality of their recovered materials for re-use.

Headed by John Cryan, a senior engineer in speciality chemicals, Axion’s machinery sales team can advise on and supply equipment including dry cleaning technology, size reduction, storage and handling equipment, and various wet washing and conveying systems.

After analysing and assessing the scope of an application, Axion’s experts can offer a process solution based on the most appropriate equipment.

The service also includes assistance with budget-stage project evaluation, to compare the capital expenditure with the financial benefits of the proposed process solution.

Bespoke client packages can include overall plant design and project management.

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.
