revalyu recycles plastic waste and creates high-quality materials from its base substances. What is innovative about your recycling process?
We have developed a chemical recycling process that does not require the addition of catalysts or additives. Compared to other procedures, our process is run at lower temperatures and lower pressures. This makes it particularly cost and energy efficient. During chemical recycling, we can completely dissolve existing impurities in the PET bottles and return the PET to its pure base substance. Our recycled PET is therefore of very high quality and due to its purity, it is suitable for even the most demanding applications. The quality is comparable to conventionally produced PET.
Where is the recycled PET used specifically?
We produce extremely fine yarns for the textile industry. They are currently used in high-quality outdoor and functional clothing, but also in the automotive industry, in furniture or in technical textiles such as flame-retardant fabrics. Our plant also produces so-called r(ecycled) PET chips, which our customers in turn use to manufacture their own fabrics in the product areas mentioned above. Theoretically, recycled PET can be used for all applications based on PET.
