1 min read


  • Virginijus ir Ko recycling plant in Lithuania has invested in shredding and washing technology for big bag recycling.
  • Lindner Washtech provided an all-in-one solution for the complex process of recycling big bags.

The Virginijus ir Ko recycling plant in western Lithuania has been processing around 35,000 tonnes of potential recyclables annually for over 20 years. They specialize in agricultural waste recycling, including big bags made of polypropylene (PP). Lindner Washtech provided a robust shredding and washing system specifically designed for big bag recycling, ensuring high productivity and material purity.

Big bags are challenging to recycle due to their tear-resistant and hard-wearing properties. Lindner Washtech’s Micromat series shredder, along with their patented ‘Rafter’ pre-wash system, effectively remove impurities and prepare the material for extrusion. The facility has been operational since 2023, producing high-quality PP granules for six months.

Overall, the partnership between Virginijus ir Ko and Lindner Washtech has been successful, with the former expressing satisfaction with the coordinated design and service provided by the latter. The investment in shredding and washing technology has enabled the recycling plant to efficiently process big bags and contribute to sustainable waste management.
