We want to meet the increased market demand for high-quality PP recyclate with our new plastic recycling plant “Erema”, which was put into operation on April 3, 2017 at the location in Leinefelde-Worbis.
The new machine is able to process even heavily printed films into premium PP compounds – more efficiently, with better product quality and double the production capacity!
We can now offer larger amounts of our highly demanded “Basic” products, that our customers use to manufacture flower pots or roof sheeting, for example.
„The plant doubles our possible capacity in this field from about 2,500 t to 5,000 t/p. a.“, says Uwe Eberhardt, Division Head Compounds at friedola®TECH, “The increased energy efficiency and the avoidance of additional production steps benefit the environment and pay off for us and for our customers. “
A better quality makes the package complete. The production waste will be reduced by more than 50 %. We expect a higher output of the machine as a result.
“Furthermore, the plant allows special settings for filler materials and flow properties according to customer specifications. This was only possible with an additional production step before.” adds Uwe Eberhardt, who campaigned for the investment and motivated management to make this acquisition.
After the successful project engineering by Siegfried Herz, CEO Dr. Matthias Stein has now handed over the plant to the Division Head Compounds Uwe Eberhardt and the Production Manager Norbert Gunkel.
The new plant replaces the previous „Erema“ at the location. We have four extrusion lines, two material processing plants and one injection molding plant for load securing wedges in Leinefelde.
