Recycling technology highlights at K show 2022

The focus of our trade show presentation is on new recycling systems and components to meet a wide range of customer needs and quality specifications. We will introduce EcoGentle®, a new plasticising technology for its PET recycling systems that significantly reduces energy consumption and features impressively gentle treatment of the melt. For particularly challenging post consumer materials such as supermarket packaging films, we are launching our proven INTAREMA® TVEplus® technology in a new DuaFil® Compact configuration. This compact double filtration machine produces double-filtered, ultra-fine quality recycled pellets. Another new machine concept, which is ready for use as a demo unit at the company's test centre in Austria, is presented as PCU TwinScrew. This is the name EREMA has given the direct combination of its patented PreConditioning Unit (PCU) with a twin-screw extruder. EREMA's Powerfil business unit will present the new Laserfilter 406 with a 50 percent larger screen area.

While we have much that is new in terms of hardware - we also have new software. This features additional digital assistance systems that are now available to machine operators on the BluPort® customer platform. With the PredictOn app, for example, imminent malfunctions can be detected based on continuous measurement and evaluation of machine data so that the cause can be remedied in good time.

Chemical recycling, fibre and textile recycling
We are intensively investigating plastic waste streams for which there is currently no satisfactory recycling solution. CHEMAREMA® is a new series we have developed for mechanical material processing as part of the chemical recycling process. So this is an extrusion technology that can be adapted to the application requirements for preparing feed material for downstream chemical processes.
By combining proven recycling technologies featuring ultra-fine filtration systems with an additional IV optimiser, we now also offer a solution for turning PET fibre production waste into rPET fibres for higher-value end applications. The rPET can be used 100 percent in the production of ultra-fine fibres of up to 2 dtex. This is the result of development work at EREMA´s newly established Fibre Recycling Centre, where customers can test their own fibre material.

Live recycling and lighthouse projects at the Circonomic Center

In the outdoor area at K, we will this year again present live demonstrations of plastics recycling in conjunction with cooperation partners. Here, the EREMA Group’s cooperation projects and live recycling demonstrations show what great progress the industry has made in terms of the circular economy.

Visit EREMA in Hall 09, Stand 9C09, and the EREMA Circonomic Center in the outdoor area, Stand FG-CE03!
