Ambigroup Reciclagem S.A. is a recycler of agricultural film, used agricultural irrigation tubing and other post-consumer waste in Portugal. The input materials are naturally very moist and contaminated – a challenge which the EREMA Recycling system masters, especially when it comes to recycling them into pellets.

Opportunity for Australia to efficiently recycle Agricultural PE film
Australia has a large and thriving agricultural industry. There are many untapped opportunities to recycle the discarded agricultural and hay-bale PE film after each season. Traditional and simple recycling processes prohibit effective processing of this material, due to the high level of abrasive and organic contamination. So there is a considerable untapped opportunity for plastics film recycling.
