The circular economy of polyester

How is recycled polyester obtained?

The success of polyester in the textile sector is due to its numerous properties that make it a very resistant fabric, with bright colours, quick drying and which allows the most varied customisations. However, its nature as a derivative of plastic makes it impossible to dispose of in nature as it is not biodegradable.

Its alter-ego, on the other hand, recycled polyester, or rPET, is made from polymers obtained by melting used plastic bottles and transformed into textile fiber which, in turn, can be recycled again to create other plastic items.

Why choose recycled polyester

  • The plastic is collected avoiding it spreading around the oceans
  • Non-renewable energy sources are conserved (e.g. oil)
  • It uses 45% less energy than virgin polyester, with the same quality
  • Reduces CO2 emissions by 30% compared to virgin polyester

Extraction of crude oil and natural gases are reduced from the earth to make more plastic
