Among them, equipment such as plastic shredding machines, plastic washing machines, and plastic waste extruder machines are essential, and their prices depend on the scale and processing capacity.

Site rental or purchase costs: Setting up a plastic waste recycling plant requires a site, the size of which depends on the scale of the treatment and the process, so site rental or purchase costs are an important part of the cost.

Manpower costs: Operating a plastic recycling plant requires a certain number of technical and managerial personnel, including equipment operators, maintenance personnel, managers, etc., and their wage bill cannot be ignored.

Factors Affecting Plastic Recycling Plant Cost

  • Size: The larger the size of the plastic recycling processing plant, the higher the investment costs tend to be, but the unit treatment costs may be lower.
  • Level of technology: Advanced treatment technologies can increase treatment efficiency and reduce energy consumption, but correspondingly, investment costs for equipment and technology will increase.
  • Regional differences: Differences in labor costs, site rentals, raw material prices, etc. in different regions will affect the total plastic waste recycling plant cost.
