30 years of innovations from EremaWith over 30 years of success, more than 4,000 systems in operation throughout the world and a notable list of references, Erema has been regarded as the global market and innovation leader in plastic recycling systems for years. Erema's technology has become established as a leading global standard for a wide variety of recycling tasks, ranging from the recycling of polyolefins to polyester (PET).
The Erema story began with a vision when it was founded in the year 1983 - to specialise in the development and manufacturing of plastic recycling systems and technologies for the plastics processing industry.
Erema managed the major breakthrough with the first generation of systems launched in 1983, the year it was founded. The company combined for the first time ever a cutter/compactor with a - back then still radial - extruder and thus made it possible (also for the first time) to cut, compact and extrude waste plastic in a single, continuous process. "Waste" was transformed into high-quality recycled pellets - a valuable secondary raw material. The machines were straightforward to operate, had low space requirements and consumed on average 30% less energy compared to the competition at that time. Major importance was attached to this new technology for the economic recycling of thermoplastics (especially very light plastics) within a very short time.
Erema continued to develop this technology and with the launch of the second plant generation in 1993 once again brought about an advancement in the industry on a large, almost dramatic scale.
