BottleBank™

a fandomat for receiving packaging for recycling

We are one of the few in Russia who provides a comprehensive proposal for the installation of fandomats.

We undertake the entire cycle from production of a fandomat to recycle waste and creation of new goods from them at  our own industrial plant in Tver.

Frequently asked questions
Which company do you represent?
The fandomates direction is implemented by EcoPartners Group (EcoTechnologies unit) together with "Zelenaya Sobaka" company. The group also includes: Tver Recycled Polymers Plant (TZVPP), RzhevMash machine-building plant, which produces containers and equipment for sorting of solid waste.
Where is waste processed?
It all depends on where a fandomat is installed. In Russia, we recycle plastic bottles from Moscow fandomats at the Tver plant of recycled polymers (Тверской завод вторичных полимеров), which is our group's plant. We take the aluminium to our partners, the Vsevolozhsk Aluminium Alloys Plant.
Is there a tare-creasing system in a fandomat?
Almost all of our fandomats are equipped with a wrinkler. When a user deposits a bottle or can, it is crumpled, punctured and goes into the container, but if for some reason the crusher has failed to compress the packaging (e.g. it is too rigid), it will still go into the container. This makes the container take twice as long to fill - this reduces the cost of servicing the fandomat.

Models:
  • BottleBank™ Flow Press and Flow Press City feature a tare-creasing system.
  • BottleBank™ Flow Lite and Flow Lite City have no tare-creasing system.
What can a fandomat accept?
All models shown can accept up to 2l:
  • plastic beverage bottles (PET)
  • Plastic flasks from household chemicals (HDPE)
  • Aluminum beverage cans (ALU)
  • Tetra Pak
Glass bottles up to 2 litres can be accepted by a separate model.
What happens if the fandomat is full?
You will know when the fandomat is full in real time: A built-in sensor sends a signal that the container is full and the machine sends an email. An employee replaces the bag with a new one and takes the collected raw material to the storage area. From there, we regularly take the collected raw materials to our own recycling plant and to the plants of our partners for processing. If the fandomat is overfilled before an employee replaces the bag, fandomat will not accept the raw material: the screen will show that the fandomat is overfilled. After replacing the bag, the fandomat will start working again.
How many bottles and cans fit in one fandomat?
A fandomat can hold ~400-800 bottles and cans (value varies greatly and depends on the volume of the packaging).

Capacity by model:
  • BottleBank™ Flow Press ~ 800 objects
  • BottleBank™ Flow Lite ~ 400 objects
  • BottleBank™ Press Press City ~ 800 objects
  • BottleBank™ Flow Press City ~ 400 objects
How do I know how many bottles have been handed in, coupons issued or points credited?
The software allows you to keep track of the number of coupons issued, objects delivered, their weight and display the information in the form of tables or charts, which will be sent to your email automatically. You can view statistics for a week, a month, a year or any other period.
How often should waste be removed?
We usually take the collected raw materials out 1 or 2 times a month: this schedule allows us to optimise our logistics costs. Only clean raw materials go into the fandomat: they do not spoil or smell. This means the bags can be stored in the store room or in the storage area until collection.
How should a fandomat be maintained?
We can take care of the maintenance of the fandomats; we have technicians for this and have developed an application system that helps us automate the process. Also, every one or two months, our specialist makes a tour of all fandomats and checks them. Some tasks can be solved remotely, so sometimes a specialist visit is not necessary and we solve problems remotely.
How does the loyalty system work?
We can set up virtually any loyalty system. For example,

  • a fandomat can upload credit points to a loyalty card,
  • print out discount coupons with a unique barcode or QR-code,
  • display a unique QR code on the screen for the user to take a picture of it,
  • Send an SMS with a unique barcode or QR code.
What can be shown on the screen?
We can customise the software to show anything on the screen: video, photo, text or animation.
