Quebec packaging supplier first in Canada to order Erema plastics recycling system
Polykar, Inc., a Saint-Laurent, Que.-based manufacturer of polyethylene film, bags and packaging, has placed the first order in Canada for the TVEplus plastics recycling system made by Erema.
Launched in 2009, the TVEplus was designed to recycle the increasingly more heavily inked and additive laden plastics packaging found more and more often today.
“The addition of the TVEplus allows us to significantly reduce waste and material expenses without compromising the quality of our products,” said Amir Karim, Polykar’s vice president of business development. “With it we can effectively reclaim highly printed film and roll scrap and process it into superior quality repro pellets for use in our trash bag lines.”
Headquartered in Austria, Erema’s North American branch is located in Ipswich, Mass.
Founded in 1987, the family-owned Polykar makes PE packaging and garbage bags for industrial, commercial, and institutional uses, and also manufacturers compostable bags and recycling plastics.
