Superior technology of the combined system VARISORT COMPACT the RecyPET AG was founded in 1998 and has been operating since September 2000, Europe’s first bottle-to-bottle PET recycling plant in Frauenfeld, Switzerland. The PET recycling plant operates according to the URRC technology developed by United Resource Recovery Corporation (United States) along with Coca-Cola and has an input capacity of approximately 18,000 tons per year. Meanwhile, four more plants in Europe apply this technology. In the Switzerland the collected bottles in five sorting plants for color and quality sort, pressed into bales, and among other things delivered to the RecyPET AG for processing. The goal of RecyPET is to close the materials loop for PET beverage bottles. The recyclate produced is used in the production including new PET beverage bottles, food, other films, etc..

In 2001, separation and sorting technology to RecyPET S + S delivered a metal separator of type PETMAG, which sorted out the metallic impurities of all kinds of PET flakes.
Since the flakes will be also sorted by color should, a color sorting device, which was originally used in the glass recycling industry, has adapted to the needs of PET recycling S + S in cooperation with RecyPET. Result was the false color separator spectrum. Even flakes, which were contaminated with smallest adhesive residues could be separated by double-sided viewing. 2010, the PETMAG was replaced by a combination system of the latest generation, the VARISORT COMPACT, metal separator, caused about a decade of commitment only to almost 2000 EURO service and spare part costs in the. Color and metal sensors are combined in this device. The feeding of the material to be examined by means of specially adjusted Vibrationsforderrinnen and combines the advantages of sliding – and tape-based systems. Thus the to remove also rubber pieces that difficult to separate due to different friction with sliding technique, from the flow of the material possibility for the first time.
