De la bouteille au RPET

From bottle to RPET

Advantages of recycled PET (RPET)

Recycled PET has many environmental benefits. Here are some examples of its main virtues:

  • Its manufacture does not require new oil extraction.
  • It reduces the strong dependence of the textile sector on oil, as well as its demand.
  • It generates 75% less CO2 and requires less energy than virgin polyester.
  • Its ecological footprint is much smaller.
  • It decreases the amount of residues. rPET prevents plastics from ending up in landfills, and therefore helps reduce toxic emissions in recycling plants.
  • It helps to strengthen new streams of recycled materials.

In short, recycled polyester reduces environmental impact, protects the planet and fights climate change.
