Erema showcasing new recycling systems at K2022

The Intarema TVEplus DuaFil Compact is one of the highlights

INTAREMA TVEplus DuaFil Compact double filtration machine for post-consumer recycling

Erema, a recycling machine manufacturer, has introduced the Intarema TVEplus DuaFil Compact, a double filtration machine for post-consumer recycling. The company is presenting this product and new recycling systems and new services for the circular economy at K 2022 in Düsseldorf.

With Intarema, the company is aiming to redefine the quality of recycling with significantly reduced energy consumption.

A key feature of the innovative double filtration machine is the consistently gentle treatment of the melt throughout the entire process. This is the result of combining the patented TVEplus technology with the new DuaFil Compact technology.

“Because there is no discharge metering zone and the melt pump is custom designed to the application, the pressure build-up required for the second filtration unit is especially efficient and only needs a much lower temperature,” explains Sebastian Sochor, R&D Engineer at Erema.

The extruder does not need to build up pressure and can be built much shorter, 10 L/D shorter compared to the previous Erema double filtration solution. The lower melt temperature of the DuaFil Compact in this area has a positive effect on the melt quality and significantly reduces energy consumption,” says Sochor.

The Intarema achieves a melt temperature upstream of the second filter unit, which is 18.5 degrees Celsius lower than the previous Erema double filtration solution, and consumes 10 percent less energy overall (specific energy consumption kWh/kg).

“Ultimately, the high quality of the recycled pellets that we achieve with this system creates the opportunity to increasingly replace virgin material with recycled material in end products, meeting the current market trend and sustainability requirements,” says Michael Heitzinger, managing director, Erema.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
