New for old – the film cycle
Plastic belongs, among glass, paper and aluminum, to the most common materials when it comes to recycling. Hammerl, headquartered in Gemmrigheim (Germany) proves impressively how profitable and resource-friendly it is to recover PE film. For a year now, the company is capable of producing its own PE granulate from film scrap by using the most modern size reduction equipment. This granulate can then be further utilized in the production process.
The Southern German company has a 50-year old history as a plastic processor. It primarily manufactures formwork accessories, PE construction films, dimpled sheets, and vapour barrier sheets. It’s clear that this success could have only been possible by constantly pushing new and innovative ideas. One of them was the investment in recycling machines by which it became possible to produce eco-friendly goods - PE construction film, for example, made from PE regrind.
