Chemical recycling, fibre and textile recyclingThe Erema Group is also making it clear at K that they 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," says Hackl in introducing another Erema innovation. Mechanical processes are often at the beginning of the process chain for chemical recycling to prepare input streams and ensure a reliable, continuous and energy-efficient flow of feed material. Chemarema 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, Erema now also offers 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 the company's newly established Fibre Recycling Centre, where customers can test their own fibre material.
Live recycling and lighthouse projects at the Circonomic CenterIn the outdoor area at K, Erema will this year again present live demonstrations of plastics recycling in conjunction with cooperation partners. Different waste streams are processed for this purpose. Plasticpreneur, the latest member of the Erema group of companies, will be there to demonstrate its mobile recycling solutions for entry-level access to plastics recycling. The wide variety of high-quality applications for recycled pellets are showcased in the "products made of recyclate" exhibition, ranging from technical components to consumer goods and food packaging. Manfred Hackl is certain that the Circonomic Center will once again prove to be a major attraction this year, because "here we make the circular economy accessible from a wide variety of perspectives in the truest sense of the word."
