Improving your Product’s Sustainability through Recycled PET
Recycled PET has gained popularity in recent years as a sustainable alternative for many products. It allows you to improve the sustainability of your product and achieve many other benefits.
Components of Recycled PETEvery 220 kg drum of Aropol & Polaris PT resin includes recycled PET material equivalent in volume to 1,800 plastic bottles. Therefore, choosing recycled PET helps promote sustainability, as well as drastically reduce your product's carbon footprint. PET recycling saves significant amounts of energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions compared to producing new PET from virgin sources.
Additionally, nowadays recycled PET shows comparable durability and performance to traditional PET. This means that you can maintain the functionality of your products while reducing the consumption of new resources. All of this without compromising on performance!
“As much effort as we put into the path of sustainability today, the more future generations will thank us”, says Cristian Patrichi, Business Unit Manager for Advanced Materials – Composites in South East Europe.
Why you should switch to Recycled PET
Furthermore, it maintains high mechanical properties, ensuring that your product's functionality and performance will be just as good as with traditional PET. Products made from Recycled PET will provide the necessary robustness and reliability, as well as the flexibility.
Choosing recycled PET is not only a sustainable choice but also a cost-competitive one. In addition to cost benefits, incorporating recycled PET into your product can help reduce material costs overall. Consumers and partners also value sustainable practices, enhancing your company's reputation.
Therefore, Recycled PET not only helps in minimizing your carbon footprint but also leads to cost savings, making it a win-win situation for both the environment and your business's bottom line.
