Amut-Erema plant on display in Novara

By the end of 2018 three open doors for the “bottle-to-packaging”

Technology - Wednesday, 10 October 2018

After the dates in July and in September, the open doors at the Amut headquarters in Novara go on to show in function the plant developed together with Erema for recycling flakes coming from 100% post consumer PET bottles and for producing food-approved single-layer sheets. Three are the scheduled appointments by the end of the year: October 23-25; November 20-22; December 11-13.

Thanks to the combination of Erema’s Vacurema technology with Amut’s Inline Sheet system, the line is able to carry out a direct “bottle to packaging” process, guaranteeing energy savings, no loss of intrinsic viscosity during the production process, and a lower kW/kg ratio. The foil produced is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, the US food and medicines regulating body) and by Efsa (the European Food Safety Authority). The proposed system can reach a flow rate of 1000 kg per hour and produces foils with a net width of 1200 mm and thicknesses ranging from 150 to 1500 micrometres.
