Thanks to the high-quality processing of plastic waste, people who use EREMA plastic recycling systems have already been able to make a valuable contribution to sustainability. Since the beginning of last year, EREMA's customers have not only had the benefit of high recycled pellet quality, they have also been able to considerably reduce CO2 emissions, power consumption and, as a result, production costs through ecoSAVE® technology. ecoSAVE® is a complete package of design and process engineering measures that reduce energy consumption by up to 10%. These measures include the use of high-quality energy-saving components such as high-performance motors, for example. With its ecoSAVE® technology, EREMA places the emphasis on continuous quality improvement and enhanced customerbenefits.
The process of continuous energy optimisation through ecoSAVE® will continue with additional technical advancements in 2011, too. To reduce losses through heat radiating to the outside and optimise thermal output even further, melt filters on new recycling systems will now feature added insulation. Effective and very robust insulation materials are used in the field of pelletising to prevent heated elements from losing heat into the cooling water. These extras are included in all EREMA plastic recycling systems as added value at no additional charge and enable plant operators to reduce production costs and optimise energy consumption even further also in future.
Besides optimised energy requirements, the systems featuring ecoSAVE® technology also stand out through their user-friendliness and operational reliability. The optionally available process control system gives the plant operator information on current energy requirements, thus enabling active energy optimisation throughout the ongoing production process.
With ecoSAVE® technology EREMA once again confirms its expertise in addressing and fulfilling
both technical and economic requirements that face end users. EREMA attaches prime importance to research and development to ensure that its plastic recycling technology will continue to remain the leading standard worldwide. The focus is always on the basic principle of protecting resources and handling them responsibly.
