Erema and Krones partner up to optimise PET recycling

Austria: Recycling equipment specialists Erema and Krones have joined forces in a bid to improve today’s polyethelene (PET) recycling practices. Their alliance is said to incorporate the technical expertise of both companies into the planning and design of PET recycling lines as well as complete factories for the recycling and bottle manufacturing industry.

Krones' comprehensive product range, particularly the MetaPure W hot-wash technology developed specifically for PET and validated by performance in the field, combined with Erema's Vacurema technology developed for PET, will enable the two companies to offer customised solutions for washing and/or decontamination technology and plastics recycling.

'Our clients will soon be able to close the entire PET cycle and take a big step forward towards the circular economy,' so the business partners say. They expect to become a 'turnkey vendor'.

More details will be provided at the upcoming Drinktec trade fair, taking place in Munich from 11 to 15 September, at Erema's stand 346 in Hall A4.
