Chemical recycling of PET
A novel technology to chemically recycle PET
“No more reuse but just recycle!” (gr3n recycling)
Recycled PET with the same characteristics as virgin PET? Finally a solution to make chemical recycling scalable: gr3n are designing a process which allows to recycle PET bottles/food containers and Polyester Textiles chemically in a profitable way. With a new patented microwave assisted technology, the economic aspects that blocked the go-live of chemical recycling until now, can be overcome. This can allow to scale up the production of new virgin PET from recycled PET/Polyester instead of oil. With this closed loop system, it is estimated that 60% of CO2 and 68% of consumed energy can be saved.
