As a rule, it is not that simple for manufacturers to increase the percentage of recyclate content. One reason for this is the inhomogeneous material composition of recyclates and impurities that alter conditions in production. Our technologies and processes are optimized for processing high recyclate content and cater for fluctuating quality.
Food trays made of 100% PET
Industrial solutions from Reifenhäuser
EVO Fusion blown film line (blown film)
The blown film line can be used to process inhomogeneous recyclates that otherwise can only be added to virgin material in small quantities.
EFSA/FDA-compliant PET sheet line (flat film)
The line can be used to produce food-safe films from 100% recyclate without the need for expensive special equipment.
EVO Ultra extruder (blown film)
With its adapted design, EVO Ultra extruders process many recyclates with the same reliability as any other raw material. The component combines maximum flexibility with high throughput.
Recycling extruder (nonwoven)
The recycling extruder feeds production rejects, such as edge trim stemming from nonwoven production, directly back to the production process to avoid scrap and make good use of rejects.
High-speed extruder (flat film)
The high-speed extruder is also capable of processing recyclates reliably due to good homogenization of the melt and its degassing performance that is excellent for extracting impurities.
RF5 BiCo spunbond line with twin-screw extruder technology (nonwoven)
Reicofil spunbond lines can easily produce nonwovens from recyclate. The line is therefore equipped with BiCo technology and a twin-screw extruder that gently processes PET and extracts impurities due to its excellent degassing performance.
