With the simplest definition, plastic granules are plastic pieces that can be as small as a grain of rice and can be produced in different sizes and shapes. It is a raw material that can take shape very easily when plastic is melted and poured into the desired mold. Therefore, plastic is used in many areas from the shoe industry to the automotive industry. Plastic is one of the most used raw materials today, both in terms of cost and ease of manufacture.
Most of the products produced from plastic are products obtained by pouring into molds. Granular pieces that are preheated or heated after being placed in the mold can easily take the shape of the desired product in a short time.
Storing the plastic raw material in small particles in the production area has great advantages. First of all, plastic granules are products that can be used for all kinds of work before they enter the mold. Whether toys or computer parts are made with these granules, the first material required is these tiny plastic pieces. This is a huge advantage for the granule producer. Because the product in your hand is not a product that will never be used. The fact that plastic is used in many different sectors shows that the market network of this product is very wide. This means that the product is definitely not available.
Another advantage of granulating waste plastics is that it is highly adaptable to storage and storage conditions. Plastic granules stocked in giant sacks or warehouses are the most advantageous form of storing plastic according to the area and amount ratio. For example, while 300 kg of plastic granules can be stocked in 10 square meters, much less plastic can be stored in larger pieces and in different shapes.


Where is Plastic Granule Used?
The use of plastic in so many different sectors has not only increased the need for this raw material, but also caused an increase in its amount as waste. Especially disposable plastic products are considered as one of the biggest environmental threats in today's world. Although plastic cups, forks, spoons, plates, pet bottles, disposable medical instruments are used only once, they become non-biodegradable substances for centuries when left to nature. Therefore, recycling of plastics is one of the biggest weapons to eliminate this environmental threat.
Plastic granule is one of the raw materials with the richest area in terms of usage areas. Plastic is quite low cost to get any product. It is widely used in many areas such as plastic toy manufacturing, construction industry, food packaging, electronic insulation, kitchenware.
In recycling facilities, all plastic waste, whether it is single use or other products that have been used for many years but have become unusable, are turned into granules to be used again in the best way. Granulated plastic waste materials are used in the production of different products. Plastic granules are used in many different areas, from wall clocks to car bumpers, from mobile phone cases to decoration products.
One of the sectors where plastic granules are widely used and which adds great value to plastic is the electronics and white goods sector. If we calculate the quantity on the basis of weight, a 1 kg plastic, when used as a part in the electronics and white goods industry, takes its place in the market for a value hundreds of times higher than the raw material price. For example, the plastic filter cover of the vacuum cleaner is sold much higher than the raw material price. The same is true for the automotive industry. Another sector in which plastic gains the most value is undoubtedly the automotive sector.
Other areas where plastic granules are used are optical and medical instruments, construction and furniture products, heat-insulated products, water tanks, disposable products, market bags, and toy production.

How is Plastic Granule Manufacturing Made?
Undoubtedly, recycling facilities are the places where plastic granule production is made the most. A large number of plastic products brought to recycling facilities by trucks and trucks are poured into the recycling line. In the recycling line, they are turned into granules after processes such as washing, separation, breaking, fragmentation. Baby bikes, toy trucks, and plastic chairs placed on the same line have all become granules after the process.
