Working together with our Thailand-based parent company Indorama Ventures Limited (IVL) is opening up new opportunities for Trevira to supply recycled products. Indorama manufactures very high-quality recycled chips from PET bottles. Since only transparent PET bottles are used in Thailand, the flakes and chips are of a particularly good and very uniform quality. Indorama’s recycled chips, fibres and filaments carry the certificates GRS (Global Recycled Standard) and RCS-NL (Recycled Claim Standard).
Trevira processes the regranulate made by Indorama from PET bottles into filament yarns consisting of 100 % recycled material. The filament yarns are available in yarn counts of 167 and 76 dtex. Alongside technical applications, they are used in the automotive, home textile and apparel sectors. In addition, we are also planning, and in some cases already delivering, numerous exciting developments using the recyclates.
