The new series of turnkey OMNI recycling lines are customizable for handling demanding applications and achieving the highest quality requirements. With its OMNI plastic recycling lines, Gneuss has launched a plant concept that pushes the previous limits of economic and technically feasible recycling. Super-clean recycling qualities can be achieved in a single process step.

During the production of PET fibers, a large amount of fiber waste is generated along the entire production chain. Recycling and reusing this waste reduce the need for virgin material and thereby saves on production costs. With its machine components for PET processing, the German company Gneuss offers innovative solutions for the mechanical recycling of fibers, fabrics & textiles. While post-consumer bottle waste contains mainly moisture and a wide variety of solid dirt particles, production waste from fiber manufacture usually contains spinning oils (and colors) in addition, which are important for processing but make recycling more difficult. Regardless of which form of mechanical purification of waste material is required, the OMNI Recycling Systems from Gneuss Kunststofftechnik takes over this task. A key feature is the optimal matching of all technological components to the recycling process. Thanks to many years of recycling experience, Gneuss can draw on a large number of patented and highly efficient solutions, which together enable unprecedented performance of the plastic recycling lines.
