Increase efficiency to obtain best sustainability: Bandera’s technological strategy aims at maximising the efficiency of the recycling processes concerning extrusion and pelletizing including pre and post-treatment of the flake with the option to incorporate additives or fillers.
The capability of upgrading material characteristics to a comparable virgin material level (food-grade, flavour/odour control, mechanical properties, etc.) is one of the priorities towards circular economy needs.
Bandera is currently developing projects that include: cascade extrusion with twin-screw extruders and or combination or multi-screws equipment for pelletizing systems for PO materials and Super Clean PET pelletizing lines (EFSA and FDA approval) and with PURe pre-treatment.
Bandera business is focused on four main goals:
-Top quality performance
- Minimum energy consumption
-Innovative thermoplastic materials
-Sustainable decrease in the weight of packaging
