New Applications

The PET industry is in constant search for new applications for reclaimed material. There are many developing markets for recovered PET:

– Polyurethane foams can be made thanks to polyester polyols developed from PET flakes.

– Engineered resins made from recovered PET can be injection moulded to manufacture computer and automotive parts.

– Other alternative production processes use “spunbonded” PET in the manufacture of shoe liners, webbing and geotextiles (e.g. shoes and backpacks).
