Erema Presents New Recycling System on Discovery Day 2016

This year's Erema Discovery Day was held at the headquarters of Erema Engineering Recycling Maschinen und Anlagen Ges.m.b.H. in Ansfelden, Austria, on 1 June 2016. Over 250 international customers and interested guests were present when Erema, in collaboration with Sipa, an Italian PET packaging solutions’ company, presented the recycling system Xtreme Renew. This achievement enables direct and flexible processing of washed PET flakes to produce preforms, signalling the dawn of a new era in PET recycling.

From sorters and washing plant manufacturers to downstream producers, fillers and brand owners, representatives from the entire PET recycling value chain were present at the Erema headquarters. The expectations of the interested attendees were high as, further to the currently low oil price, the conclusion may be drawn that PET recycling is not profitable at the moment. "In my experience with customers, the reason why a producer decides in favour of a major investment in a recycling solution is based on a broad-sighted, entrepreneurial approach," says Christoph Wöss, Business Development Manager for Bottle Applications at Erema. The cooperation between two big players in the plastics industry made it possible to develop a direct processing solution which stands out through better preform quality characteristics when using rPET.

The food contact compliant melt produced by Vacurema runs when hot and thus without the otherwise common, intermediate cooling stage in pellet production directly into the Xtreme production process developed by Sipa to make preforms in a single step. The benefit of this direct processing, therefore, is an enormous boost in energy efficiency plus considerably lower thermal damage to the PET material.
