A closed loop, sustainable solution
Our recycling system works through a heat extrusion process, reducing polyester textiles into rPET pellets. These pellets can then be turned into fibre to be spun back into polyester textiles, or used for injection moulding.
The recycling process is conveyor led, with shredding and extrusion of polyester fabrics to prepare them.
Fabrics are then filtered and pelletised before finally being spun to yarn, ready for re-use.
