EREMA’s recycling plant now with up to 40,000 tonnes annual production capacity

The demand for recycled plastics and larger sized machines keep growing. With its dimensions and production capacity, EREMA's new size of plant features a screw diameter of 280 mm, implemented for the first time in a VACUREMA Basic 2628 T large-scale project for producing rPET pellets.


EREMA has just shipped the plant to a customer in Brazil. Up to 40,000 tonnes per year of rPET meeting the highest quality standards can now be produced.


"For this purpose, we installed a screw with a length of ten meters, a diameter of 280 millimeters and a weight of 3.5 tonnes, which is the largest ever used in one of our recycling machines," introduced Michael Heitzinger, Managing Director at EREMA.


The reactor of the VACUREMA T large-scale plant almost reaches the roof of the new production hall.

The screw was manufactured by 3S, a subsidiary of EREMA. The reactor of this recycling system with a height of around 10 meters is also unique and almost reaches the roof of the new production hall. 500 tonnes of input material were recycled during the test phase, which was subject to strict quality control.


Four years ago, the largest extrusion line supplied by EREMA was designed for a throughput of 15,000 tonnes per year. This size of plant was ordered by customers once or twice a year. In the meantime, machines like this leave the production site in Ansfelden every month.


Also, in 2020, the food and beverage packaging manufacturer Envases Universales Mexico commissioned two VACUREMA Basic 2625 T machines, each with a screw diameter of 250 mm and a capacity of 30,000 tonnes per year.
