The Teijin Group announced that it is providing its chemically recycled polyester fiber, ECO CIRCLE FIBERS, for the production of uniforms worn by players in the China Basketball Association (CBA). The uniforms, which are made by Li Ning Co., Ltd., a major Chinese manufacturer of sports apparel, have been worn by CBA teams since the season opened on November 8.   
 
The ECO CIRCLE FIBERS are being sold through Zhejiang Jiaren New Material Co., Ltd., a joint venture between Teijin and Jinggong Holding Group. The JV, which is based in Shaoxing along China’s central east coast, handles the chemical recycling of polyester products and polyester fibers, including sales of the latter. ECO CIRCLE FIBERS also will be used in any CBA uniforms that are marketed commercially. 
 
After use, the uniforms can be recycled into polyester fiber of the same quality as conventional fiber by using Teijin’s ECO CIRCLE closed-loop system for the chemical recycling of polyester. The recycling will be carried out at a chemical recycling plant that Zhejiang Jiaren New Material will start operating in May 2014.
 
The Teijin Group and Li Ning have been collaborating in ECO CIRCLE undertakings since 2009, the recent provision of ECO CIRCLE FIBERS for CBA uniforms being the latest initiative. Both parties intend to continue strengthening their partnership to support expanding recycling activities in China.
