Post-consumer material, especially household packaging waste, was previously considered to be plastic which is difficult to recycle due to the fluctuations in quality of the materials, including for example the type of contaminant and the respective different degree of contamination.

"EREMA is worldwide the leader in producing high quality plastic-recycling-machines. On the Chinese market we are already the leader in the application in-house and industrial recycling, particularly for biaxially oriented polyethylene terephthalate (BOPET) and polypropylene (BOPP) films. The next main-focus is in the field of yarns & fibers and post-consumer recycling of already used plastic and we made already the first steps in the recycling-application of polyester bottles to PET sheets in the China-market," said Michael Heitzinger, EREMA's CTO.

At CHINAPLAS 2017, the Austria-based recycling machinery supplier demonstrated an INTAREMA TVEplus 1108 with Laserfilter. This combination enables efficient recycling of heavily contaminated materials with different bulk densities, ranging from film to regrind with cellulose contaminants such as paper, rubber or silicones which is processed to make high-quality recyclates.

The INTAREMA TVEplus and Laserfilter open up new sales markets for our customers in the post-consumer sector for their high quality recyclates and products, according to EREMA.

"If you are recycling low density polyethylene (LDPE) film, the end-product can be used back for LDPE film. They don't have to go to injection molded or downcycled," Heitzinger explained. "We try to keep with this machine the same material quality level as its virgin applications."

He said the Chinese market is coming strong because there is a lot of emphasis on plastics recycling. "Even in the hotels in China, they have bins to allow for separation of recycling and non-recycling items, which you don't see in Austria. It is amazing!"

EREMA's major source of revenue in China comes from in-house recycling, but Heitzinger expects the situation to change soon.

"Especially regarding the post-consumer recycling market, we have made the first step in the last three years and I am sure it will definitely roll because post-consumer waste is a big problem to the society, and we are already able to offer a solution for almost all applications."

In order to exploit the market potential, Heitzinger said EREMA is always looking to expand its workforce, which has a base in Shanghai. "It is not always a smooth," he explained, pointing out that finding the right person for the right job is the hardest part of all.

"In order to join our successful team in China, we have increased service technicians and startup technicians here in China to be well prepared for the next step," he said. "We have to hurry up because the market is growing and the competition is also growing"
