ANSFELDEN, AUSTRIA and BRUSSELS, BELGIUM, July 15, 2021 — Chemical Recycling Europe is pleased to welcome EREMA Group, a plastics recycling machine manufacturer and provider of services related to the recycling process, as a new member of the association.

The EREMA Group’s pioneering work started in the 1980s. With the subsidiaries EREMA, 3S, PURE LOOP, UMAC, PLASMAC and KEYCYCLE now it covers the entire spectrum of mechanical plastics recycling – from planning and engineering through to developing and manufacturing recycling technologies as well as producing system components. Supported by subsidiaries in the USA, China, Russia and a worldwide network of representatives, EREMA recycling solutions are currently in operation in over 100 countries. This valuable experience helps them to strive towards the aim to integrate recycling know-how into the value chain in such a way that benefits the environment, the industry, and society.

ChemRecEurope Secretary General, Mohammad Hayatifar, said: “We are pleased EREMA Group has joined ChemRecEurope. It is one of the leading manufacturers of plastics recycling machines with decades of valuable experience in our industry.

We are committed to connecting all actors in the value chain and this is one more step toward our goal. We are looking forward to working together with EREMA Group to increase the circularity of plastic.”

Manfred Hackl, CEO of EREMA Group GmbH stated: “For material flows where mechanical recycling is approaching its limits, it is important to regulate and apply additional processes. We will contribute as a member of Chemical Recycling Europe in the same way as we do in other recycling initiatives with great commitment and very good results! In recent years, we have not only led the way with our recycling technologies, but also with activities aimed at bringing together the players in the plastics industry for discussion and interaction to put proven Circular Economy solutions on the road even faster.”
