Economical Processing of Biopolymers

As crude oil and gas becomes scarce and more expensive, chemists and plastics engineers all over the world look for new, sustainable raw materials and new technologies to produce polymers.

Biopolymers are produced from annual crops and plants like wheat, corn, potato and sugar cane and other new alternatives now being developed for the production of food packaging materials like film sheet and foam containers. i.e. PLA (Polylactic Acid).

While producing such products, size reduction, compounding and recycling technologies play a major role.  This is the area where PALLMANN specialists are pioneering and leading the way with ecological and economical solutions.  In the world's largest research and technology center for size reduction, PALLMANN offers an unparalleled opportunity for all those working on technologies that will change tomorrow's world.

Special techniques have been developed in recent years, enabling us today to offer processes such as shredding and fiberizing of annual crops and plants, compounding the biopolymers with additives and pigments, pulverizing granules and inline recycling during the production of film sheet and foam containers.

Available Processes:
Sample Applications:
  • Milling

  • Depithing

  • Fiberizing

  • Compounding

  • Recycling

Economical Preparation of Plants

Industrial processing of renewable new materials is being driven forward worldwide; whether it is for the usage of the fiber components, the pith for the production of fodder, for gaining ingredients such as proteins and vitamins, for the extraction of oil and alcohol or for the production of thermal energy.

PALLMANN has developed suitable processes and machines that allow the economical preparation of renewable raw materials.  Customer requirements are very diverse.  Vegetable matter is to be prepared for extraction into homogeneous end products without a high percentage of fines.

Cell structures are to be broken down in order to be able to better press the contents.  Fibers with a defined length or width are to be gained in order to increase the physical properties of composite materials.  Voluminous feed materials are to be processed automatically, if possible, in order to be able to feed downstream processes.

The waxen layer on steams must be roughened in order for glues and adhesives to stick.  Vegetable matter contains natural foreign objects such as sand and stones as well as other disturbing matter, i.e. metals and plastics that must be removed automatically during processing, if possible. 

This requires special machinery, for example, with ballistic discharge system components such a heavy gravity sifters, stone traps, over belt magnets and non-ferrous separators.

Machines with a high wear resistance that are not sensitive to feeding fluctuations are required.  Installed in process lines, the machines operate around the clock.  Scheduled downtime for maintenance is normally planned on an annual basis.  The machines used for these purposes distinguish themselves by their flexibility in the adjustment of technical process parameters and absolute reliability.
