The film extraction systems are designed to collect material from extraction hoods positioned above conveyors at sorting platforms divided over a recycling plant. The material will be transported to a material separator. The material separator separates the material from the air flow and the film or foil drops pressure less into a film bunker or baler. The air will be extracted from the material separator by a fan and will be filtrated by the use of a dust filter. The air can be either discharged in the surrounding area or returned to the extraction hoods through an air return system.
