Plastics recycling machinery manufacturer Erema is making a major investment in a new Customer Test Center at its Austrian headquarters, according to Andreas Dirnberger, Erema’s vice president of sales. He explains, “This investment enables us to separate trial runs for customers or prospective customers from trial runs for internal research and development. Currently Erema runs approximately 400 technical tests and experiments for customers per year.
Though launched just one year ago, Erema’s TVEplus recycling units already have gained a solid foothold in the market.
Inside the test center will be available seven complete recycling plants. In-house recycling of film waste, collected industrial waste recycling as well as post consumer recycling applications such as PET bottle-to-bottle recycling will be ready to be tested after the opening of the new Customer Test Center.
Erema (Ansfelden, Austria) last year introduced its TVEplus Systems, and Dirnberger says the company already has placed 30 TVEplus Systems throughout the world. Another 40 of the systems are under construction based on orders through the end of this coming August. —Matt Defosse
