What is PET?
PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) is a plastic resin and the most common type of polyester which was discovered in 1941 in England. Two monomers named as (modified Ethylene Glycol and purified Terephthalic acid) are combined to form the Polyethylene Terephthalate.
PET plastic is used to pack products by manufacturers because of its thermo-stability, strength, and transparency. Customers prefer PET because of its various attributes -lightweight, inexpensive, re-sealable, and 100% recyclable.PET can be recycled multiple times and into many forms such as bottles, fiber for carpets; t-shirts fabric or fiberfill for sleeping bags, fleece jackets; winter coats, sheet and thermoformed (clam shell) packaging; and industrial strapping; dog beds; and automotive parts such as and door panels, headliners, bumpers and more.
We are proud of using recycled raw material. The below is basic process steps for PET recycling. And we also supply PET flakes and recycle PET chips globally.
Washing => Sorting => Crushing => Washing => Drying => Packaging
We are proud that we can supply recycle fiber, it’s from PET bottles flakes. By recycling PET material instead of landfilling, we provide a sustainable fiber production to save our earth.
There are two kinds of PET recycle material, one is post industrial waste which come out in manufacturing of PET product, film sheet, lumps waste, preforms waste, fiber waste, PET non-woven fabric waste, polyester garment cloth waste etc. good lumps scrap, clean preforms scraps, clean PET film sheet flakes can be used in fiber production directly; fiber waste, PET nonwoven fabric waste, and polyester cloth waste will be processed into POP corn.
Another (as our current input) is post consume waste, most of post consume waste is PET bottles waste after shredded into flakes/scraps, washed and dry, it is good for fiber.
Most of challenges to recycling PET material is to make them always consistent, because of the fluctuation of PET waste quality. How to control and sustainability of PET waste is the biggest problem. We take our pride in our ability to have a stable raw material supply. Besides, our company has taken the initiative to choose the best option for a water treatment in our factory because washing of PET bottles recycling generates a huge volume of wastewater which varies greatly in composition and contains various chemicals which are complex to treat. Discharging this untreated sewage water from the process is highly harmful to the natural environment, causing pollution to nearby water, soil & live stocks. It defeats the very purpose of recycling a Biodegradable waste.
Standing by our reliable supply of PET waste, selective of plant partner, we can supply several kinds of polyester staple fiber. As every single customer has different preference on fiber quality, just to let us know which quality you need, we will come up with a solution for you.
