For a combination of recycling machine and anti-odour technology downstream of extrusion, the recycling system "Intarema TVE plus Regrind Pro + Refresher", the Austrian machine manufacturer Erema received the Plastics Recycling Award Europe 2021 in the category "Recycling Machinery Innovation of the Year" during the PRS (Plastics Recycling Show) trade fair in Amsterdam. According to Erema, the award-winning system makes it possible for the first time to produce odour-neutral recyclates even from heavily soiled packaging waste and also to process HDPE closures from HDPE, PP and PET beverage bottles in addition to all HDPE beverage containers. The recyclate resulting from the system is said to be able to be reused up to 100 per cent in the production of beverage packaging, which has also been confirmed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to Erema, the combination of recycling machine and refresher is already being used by its customers to produce 450,000 tonnes of HDPE recyclate per year.
