Latest technology for closed polymer life cycles
"Across Europe, 29M tonnes of plastic waste are generated every year. Its environmentally friendly recycling is one of the most important issues facing our society. PreZero Polymers Austria GmbH, with its 100 committed employees, is also making a major contribution to helping the EU's "Green Deal" goals achieve a breakthrough," says Dr Peter Kaiser, Governor of Carinthia.
Investments despite the pandemicEven in times of the Corona pandemic, PreZero Polymers continues to invest in the future of the company. "The construction of the EREMA twin-screw extruder is an important milestone for us in closing the plastics cycle. The plant enables us to produce high quality plastic recyclates for our customers. In times like these, we are all the more pleased to be able to officially open this plant together with the Governor of Carinthia, Dr Peter Kaiser," emphasises Robert Lackner, head of business operation at PreZero Polymers.
The twin-screw extruder from the Austrian manufacturer EREMA has an output capacity of 2200 kg/h and is capable of mixing up to twelve different materials. The plastic recyclates from PreZero Polymers thus create alternatives for the use of new plastics. Fields of application for the recyclates include the gardening and furniture-making industries, the household appliance and construction sectors, and even the automotive industry.
