Erema delivers large-scale recycling plant to customer in Brazil


Erema delivers large-scale recycling plant to customer in Brazil

Austria-based Erema Engineering Recycling Maschinen und Anlagen GmbH has increased the production capacity of its Vacurema Basic 2628 T plant in its most recent installation project - RecyclingToday

Erema delivered a Vacurema Basic 2628 T plant for a large-scale project to produce recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) pellets to a customer in Brazil. The plant is capable of producing up to 40,000 metric tons per year of rPET.

For this purpose, we installed a screw with a length of 10 meters (nearly 33 feet), a diameter of 280 millimeters (roughly 11 inches) and a weight of 3.5 metric tons, which is the largest ever used in one of our recycling machines. The entire project was a great team effort.

Michael Heitzinger, Managing Director, Erema

During the test phase, 500 metric tons of input material were recycled in the machine, subject to strict quality control.

Prior to this installation, the largest Vacurema Basic plant commissioned had a capacity of 30,000 metric tons per year.

Erema says the screw was manufactured by 3S, a subsidiary of Erema GmbH. The plant also features a reactor with a height of around 10 meters.
