The main production site and Headquarter of the company is located in Corsico in Via Privata Archimede 4/6.
In the Corsico Plant, 4 sorting lines divide waste combining a mix of Optical, Mechanical and Manual selection.
Waste, mostly coming from plastic packaging Urban Collection (single- and multi-material mixed with other waste packaging as tinplate, aluminum, and polylaminate), comes to Masotina to be selected by polymer and color, to maximize their recycle-reuse value. This Process involves several steps to separate the plastic valuable components from other materials like paper, cardboard, polylaminates, metal and and inert matter.
At the Corsico Facility come waste streams pre-processed by Masotina S.p.A.’s other facilities as well
Production activities at the Corsico Facility:
Sorting of plastic waste from other valuable recyclable materials like paper, cardboard, aluminum, tinfoil, polylaminates and inert
Pre-cleaning of plastic waste to make it suitable for further sorting steps
Separating the plastic waste stream by polymer and color
Channeling the selected waste plastic fractions to recycling
Channeling residual non-reusable waste fractions into recovery
N. 1 semi-automated sorting line to separate valuable fractions (plastic, paper, cardboard, aluminum, tinfoil and polylaminates)
N. 2 automated polymer-color selection lines through high resolution optical readers
N. 1 automated separation and shredding line for the residual non-reusable waste fractions
