Additional highlights from EREMA at NPEMore and more producers of plastic products are counting on reducing their manufacturing costs through the recycling of clean production waste, as Martin Baumann explains: "Our sales in the recycling of clean production waste are constantly growing. We put this down largely to the increasing demand for high-quality film products and the associated expansion of production capacities," says Martin Baumann. An INTAREMA T 1108 will be in action live at the booth, processing clean LDPE production waste direct and without pre-shredding to make high-quality recyclates.
Additionally, EREMA will be providing details on the world's first rPET Inline Preform system at its booth. SIPA, a leading manufacturer of PET packaging solutions from Italy, joined forces with EREMA to develop a flexible, direct processing solution to make food-contact-compliant preforms from rPET flakes - in a continuous process. For PET processors the pioneering system has both economic and ecological benefits: energy savings, lower logistics and process costs and higher profitability. The Inline Preform system is in full line with the global trend of processing post-consumer PET flakes direct to make sheet, strapping or end products.
