Ammeraal Beltech, a leader in conveying sustainable solutions, is proud to introduce the new AMMdurance rPET, a revolutionary conveyor belt produced from recycled PET bottles, that delivers a unique combination of cutting-edge technology and eco-conscious design, ensuring a positive impact on the planet and business.
Ammeraal Beltech’s AMMdurance rPET stands out from conventional conveyor belts. It is engineered to help logistics reduce operational costs, energy consumption, and carbon dioxide emissions, without sacrificing functionality and performance. This ground-breaking solution combines energy saving with recycling, all while optimising operational efficiency.
The company claim to have developed a special technique of dry fabric treatment that reduces the friction between the belt and the underlying machinery, resulting in a significant reduction of power consumption – by about 17%. This innovative method not only enables superior energy efficiency, making AMMdurance rPET the perfect eco-friendly choice for companies committed to sustainability and carbon footprint reduction, but it also protects the fabric against dirt and shrinkage, facilitating its longevity and wear resistance.
By utilising discarded plastic bottles and transforming them into high-quality fabric, AMMdurance rPET makes a substantial contribution to combating plastic waste. In fact, for every square meter of this new product, 14 PET bottles of 1.5 L each are recycled. Compared to standard synthetic belts, PET fabric initiatives reduce CO2 emissions by 1.2 kg and decrease greenhouse gases release by 70%.
“We support our partners in providing their customers with unique Ammeraal Beltech solutions that help limit resources and enhance the value of their business. The AMMdurance rPET is the most efficient conveyor belt on the market”, comments Michel Keetman, Head of CPM at Ammeraal Beltech. “It revolutionises logistics and airport operations, proving the opportunity for both – improving performances and operational sustainability. It’s a win-win solution for your business and the planet.”
