RegrindPro – a giant leap forward in the recycling of regrindRecycling regrind as an alternative to virgin material has enormous potential for processors of plastics. With raw material prices increasing all the time, the demand for the processing of regrind to make high-quality recycled pellets is growing more and more, especially in the thick-walled packaging, electronics (WEEE) and automotive sectors. The thick-walled input material (HDPE, PP, ABS, PS, etc.), however, requires a specific treatment process which is designed to be able to handle mixed fractions with varying compositions, high bulk density and moisture, plus strong and varying contaminants through a very wide variety of impurities. The recycled pellets also have to meet exacting quality standards to be able to make end products from them with top surface quality and particularly high recyclate content.
Clemens Kitzberger, Erema Business Development Manager Post Consumer, explains: "Recyclers who use recycled pellets from regrind have to be able to rely on their end products having top surface quality." With the new product Intarema RegrindPro Erema has succeeded in developing a plant system which is designed exactly for these thick-walled materials. Thanks to extremely gentle processing and highly efficient filtration, the new system enables the recycling of regrind into application-oriented secondary raw materials.
