Amsterdam — German machinery supplier KraussMaffei AG is opening a trial center for its latest combined recycling and re-compounding technology in Gunskirchen, Austria this June, according to Carl P. Poepel, product manager twin-screw extruders, KraussMaffei Berstorff.
In his presentation to the Plastics Recycling Show Europe (PRSE) March 30 in Amsterdam, the official said the EdelweissCompounding Trial center would be dedicated for customer trials and open by late June.
KraussMaffei Berstorff, in partnership with Erema Engineering Recycling Maschinen und Anlagen GmbH, has developed the EdelweissCompounding technology which supplies recycling systems for Berstorff's re-compounding technology.
This combination, said Poepel, is useful for both compounders and recyclers, as the former can back-integrate the system while the latter can forward-integrate the system in their plants.
The two companies announced the partnership at K 2016.
