NGR debuts innovative PET improvement equipment at NPE2015


Next Generation Recyclingmaschinen GmbH - will premiere its new P:REACT equipment at next month’s NPE2015. Based on the principles of LSP (Liquid State Polycondensation), a process that considerably enhances the material properties of PET, the P:REACT is a good choice for PET converters seeking to re-use production scrap, as well as for end-of-life PET recyclers. According to NGR, the P:REACT process enables production waste such as fibers, fabrics, wovens and non-wovens, preforms, strapping tapes and films to be re-processed into virgin quality resin.

Last fall, NGR received the Upper Austrian Innovation Award for the development of the new LSP process. The process has the advantage of working within minutes; by contrast, using conventional PET upgrading technologies, which are generally based on Solid State Polycondensation, enhancement of the material properties usually takes hours.
