Everything About Recycled PET

Benefits Of Recycled Polyester
With 49% of global production, polyester is the most widely used fibre in the apparel sector; more than 62,000 million tonnes of polyester fibres are produced annually.
Production of polyester fabric involves significant quantities of chemicals, raw materials and by-products that are toxic can pollute air and water and cause health issues.
Recycled polyester is promoted by TE as a preferred fabric.
Recycled polyester also known as rPET is obtained by melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new polyester fibre.
It can be either mechanically or chemically recycled with feedstock consisting of either pre or post consumer waste that can no longer be used for intended purposes.
It diminishes the environmental impact that comes with garment waste. This is called a closed a closed loop system.
Life cycle assessment prove that there is a reduction of carbon emission and prevention of toxic emission due to incineration.
Recycled PET Process
Our Milestone In Australian Open
Recycled polyester not only contributes to the reduction of petroleum extraction, but it also consumes less energy than the regular method. It allows for a much longer life-cycle of the garment. Since the recycling process can be repeated instead of disposing of unwanted garments, it diminishes the environmental impact that comes with garment waste. This is called a Closed Loop system.
