FROM PIONEER TO WORLD MARKET LEADER.
Long-term success for more than 35 years.
EREMA is the world's number one in developing and manufacturing plastics recycling machines and system components. Founded in 1983 as a pioneer in the industry, more than 6500 of our systems are now in operation around the globe. Highly respected for their level of innovation, durability and operational reliability. In total, they produce more than 14 million tonnes of plastics pellets every year. To the very highest, demand-specific quality.
We are inspired to continue developing technologies that are better and more powerful. That is why our in-sync team consisting of highly qualified specialists carries out research activities for new recycling systems continuously while perfecting existing machines. 115 patent families with more than 1000 patents are testimony to our innovation leadership.
High performance. Worldwide.
EREMA is part of the EREMA Group, to which PURE LOOP, 3S and UMAC also belong. Regardless of which aspect of plastics recycling is relevant, customers always enjoy the expertise and tailor-made solutions offered by the companies in the group. That is guaranteed by more than 660 employees in the group, at the headquarters in Ansfelden/Austria, at our subsidiaries in the USA, China, Russia and Africa as well as at more than 50 national representatives on five continents.
IMPRESSIVE R-PET. SAFE AND SOUND.
Top quality solutions for bottle-to-bottle recycling and rPET inline applications
Uncompromising food contact compliance, IV stability, reliability and the best energy efficiency. We know what is important in bottle-to-bottle recycling and in rPET inline applications. Something we have proven with our leading VACUREMA® and VACUNITE® Systems, that worldwide processes more than 2.5 million tonnes of PET to rPET every year.
The EREMA technology ensures that the quality of your end product not only is - but also stays - consistently high. And they stay stable even if the properties of your input material change all the time – for example in terms of moisture and bulk density or IV values. That is what we mean with flexibility.
VACUREMA®. Better for PET.
Uncompromising food contact compliance, IV stability, reliability and top energy efficiency: there are many benefits when you start with the important things first. In bottle-to-bottle recycling this means: decontamination BEFORE extrusion. This is the straightforward but very effective basic principle of the VACUREMA® technology of EREMA. And using this technology you form the perfect basis for a top-quality end product right at the beginning of the process.
As a result, IV value and further key parameters of your end product remain stable. And they stay stable even if the properties of your input material change all the time – for example in terms of moisture and bulk density or through mixtures of PET material with differing IV values.
Reliable decontamination of the flakes.
The central advantage of VACUNITE® and VACUREMA® systems is the unique SafeFlake technology in the vacuum reactor, which unites several central functions in one - in particular flake decontamination, drying and IV treatment.
By pre-treating the PET flakes in a vacuum at the correct temperature - and, in the case of VACUNITE®, with the additional application of nitrogen - moisture and migratory substances are removed effectively as part of the process before extrusion. This prevents any hydrolytic and oxidative decomposition of the melt in the extruder. A clear advantages in terms of melt quality and therefore the basis for a stable, highly clean and food-compliant end product with the best colour values.
