EREMA presents the new global innovation VACUNITE at PETnology

New bottle-to-bottle process for food-contact-grade rPET pellets stands out through highly efficient decontamination, compact design and low energy consumption.

With the presentation of its newly developed VACUNITE technology today at the PETnology conference in Paris, EREMA once again demonstrates its role as innovation leader. The Austrian producer of plastics recycling machines brings together its VACUREMA® bottle-to-bottle process with newly patented, vacuum-supported solid state polycondensation (SSP) from Polymetrix in this innovation. What makes this combination so special: all thermal process steps take place in nitrogen atmosphere. The result is rPET pellets which are unique in quality and far exceed all food-contact requirements.

With VACUNITE EREMA expands its portfolio for PET recycling solutions. This technology is the answer to the challenges which PET recycling will have to face in the future. Christoph Wöss, EREMA Business Development Manager for the bottle sector, sums up these challenges as follows: "The growing commitment in society to handling plastics in a responsible way means that both political requirements and voluntary pledges of major beverage brands call for a significant increase in the amount of recyclate in end products. To fulfil these requirements, even more material in general and with varying quality due to different collection systems has to be recycled while, at the same time, the big brands are becoming even stricter with their requirements regarding the recyclates produced.
