The production equipment – in brief

  • Two production paths

DRS operates with two different production paths in which the collected beverage containers are handled at the DRS production plant. These two production paths are:

  • 1. Production path for compacted beverage containers, sorting and final handling of PET and ALU
  • 2. Production path for Reception, handling and counting of all materials
  • DRS collects the empty beverage containers at its customers. In practice, a distinction is made between three different types of collection, namely:
  • Counted beverage containers:

PET/PE and aluminium beverage containers which are compacted directly at the customers in compactors and where the beverage containers are counted at the same time by a central control unit at the customers.

PET/PE, aluminium and glass beverage containers which are non-compacted but also counted by a central control unit at the customers.

On arrival to DRS’s production plants, the compacted PET/PE and aluminium beverage containers proceed to a separate sorting process where the compacted beverage containers are sorted according to type of material, PET/PE and aluminium. The compacted PET/PE and aluminium beverage containers are mainly handled in production path number 1, but depending on the collection by ordinary trucks or special truck the reception is also handled in production path number 2 before being transported to production path number 1.

All the counted glass beverage containers are handled solely in production path number 2.

  • Uncounted beverage containers:

PET/PE, aluminium and glass beverage containers which are not compacted at the customers and which are therefore collected and transported by DRS as whole containers. The beverage containers are not counted until they arrive at one of DRS’s two plants where the beverage containers are counted on a sorting line to be able to pay deposit back to our customers.

PET/PE, aluminium and glass beverage containers which are collected at DRS’s 12 deposit stations in special deposit bags. The deposit stations are placed around in Denmark. The beverage containers are not counted until they arrive at one of DRS’s two plants where the beverage containers are counted on a sorting line and deposit is paid directly to the private consumers.

On arrival to DRS’s plants, the beverage containers which have not been compacted proceed to a so-called empty process of collection material used by our customers. Hereafter these beverage containers proceed to a counting process where the beverage containers are first counted and then separated out on a sorting line. The counting process takes place in a so-called scanner house, where the beverage containers are counted and registered. The sorted PET/PE and ALU is transported to production path number 1 for further handling and pressing before being transported to reprocessors in other countries. Glass is handled solely in production path number 2.

Only the production equipment for production path number 2 for Reception handling and counting, is intended to form part of this market dialogue. Production equipment for production path number 1 for compacted beverage containers has already been held as a similar market dialogue.

Background to the market dialogue

DRS is building a new production plant for sorting and recycling PET/PE and aluminium beverage containers, and in this respect DRS envisages to invest in new production equipment and with the new equipment automate the production workflow and processes. In this connection, DRS intends to identify potential suppliers of production equipment in the market, including based on market input, to compile one or more tender dossiers that would enable a wide range of suppliers to tender for the supply of production equipment to DRS. Hence, DRS intends to carry out market research and engage in a dialogue with primarily potential future suppliers of production equipment, either in complete production equipment or suppliers of machine units.

Purpose of the market dialogue

DRS wishes to obtain input from the market prior to the invitation to tender for production equipment in whole or as separate purchases of machine units. DRS wishes to obtain input from suppliers with experience in providing production equipment or comparable services. DRS wishes to have a dialogue with both potential suppliers of complete production equipment, and/or suppliers of the different machine units for the production equipment. By seeking input from the market, DRS hopes to gain the knowledge about products, suppliers and market which is needed to enable DRS to prepare a tender dossier, or tender dossiers, which is not only adequate to the purpose but also interesting for the suppliers to participate in.

Participants in the market dialogue

In this connection, DRS requests information from potential suppliers about, for example, reference products or input about relevant market-related matters which would be relevant for DRS to take into account in its preparation of the specification of requirements and contract.
