Plastics Industry Meets on Discovery Day

Erema North America Stages Industry Symposium

The Technical Center in Ipswich, Massachusetts, recently became the meeting point for well-known companies spanning all sectors of the plastics industry. The occasion was the Erema North America's (ENA) Discovery Day. The focus of the discussions and demonstrations was on post-consumer recycling. "Our goal is to take advantage of the growing awareness of the necessity of plastics recycling and drive forward networking within the industry. We managed to achieve this at our Discovery Day on 25 September," says a delighted Martin Baumann, VP Sales of ENA, referring not only to the speakers who were pleased to take part but also the impressive flow of visitors. 130 guests from all areas of the plastics scene accepted Erema's invitation.

The focal theme was the recycling of post-consumer waste, with the circular economy being a possibly path if raw material producers, processors, brand article manufacturers and recyclers pursue it together. This was also underscored by the external speakers from Envision Plastics, Exxon Mobil and Interseroh Dienstleistungs AG, who presented outstanding projects in their talks. Efforts to improve recyclate quality were at the centre of analysis and discussion.

Recycling Technology in Real Time

Attendees were able to experience three recycling systems for different applications in action in the course of the machine demonstrations and see close-up the convincing quality of the recyclates produced. The HDPE bottle recycling System (Intarema RegrindPro with ReFresher and Laserfilter) presented stands out through the thermal-physical odour minimisation of the pellets. Additional technological emphases on show included recycling machines for EPS material and for heavily contaminated LLDPE films.

The speakers came away from the Discovery Day with mostly positive impressions. "Erema organised a great Recycling Discovery Day at their tech center," says Tamsin Ettefagh, Vice President Envision Plastics, who also presented at the event. "A mix of hands-on demonstrations at the machines and presentations makes this a unique happening in our industry.
