RAMPF Ecosystems and Keil Anlagenbau, Germany, will illustrate how reprocessing can significantly lower production costs of PUR and PET processors with high residual material volume at the UTECH North America 2014, from 2- 5 June 2014.
According to RAMPF, it’s a win-win situation – economically and ecologically: the recycling of residual material from PUR and PET production means less consumption of raw materials and a reduction in energy spending via lower transport and disposal costs. It says the residual materials from PUR and PET production are reprocessed and manufactured into high-quality alternative polyols using technologies form the two companies. The recycled polyols are tailored to the production of PUR and PIR based products of the customer.
RAMPF explains that along with Keil Anlagenbau, It has vast experience in developing innovative recycling solutions and in industrial plant construction. This knowledge goes into the conceptual designing and construction of customised PUR and PET reprocessing plants for producers with high residual material volume. This enables the manufacturing of highly-engineered alternative polyols on site at the production plant of the customer. It says the polyols meet the highest quality requirements and are tailored to the production of the PUR and PIR based products of the customer.
For more than 20 years, RAMPF says its teams have successfully been researching and developing alternative polyols. At the company’s site in Pirmasens, Germany, several large industrial plants use specially-developed chemical processes to convert PUR and PET waste into high-quality alternative polyols which are tailored to the needs of the customer.
Utilising this knowledge, RAMPF develops and sets up plants directly at the production sites of customers with a particularly large-volume of residue. This enables the local manufacture of low-cost, high-quality polyols.
