Applied DNA, provider of molecular technologies for diagnostics and therapeutics, has partnered with GHCL Limited, a manufacturer of home textiles, and Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL), India’s largest private sector firm, to launch CertainT verified recycled PET (“rPET”) bedding products at New York Home Fashions week, to be held from March 19 to 22, 2018.

Fully source-verified, recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET post-consumer) is the clear plastic best known for packaging bottled water, and is the most widely recycled plastic in the world. GHCL will use Applied DNA’s CertainT platform in connection with PET- and/or recycled PET-blended bed sheets, pillowcases, and shams sold in-store or online in the United States. RIL is collaborating with GHCL and Applied DNA as the preferred fibre-manufacturing partner to use the CertainT platform for authenticity of recycled PET in bed sheets, pillowcases, and shams.

RIL, the largest integrated producer of polyester fibre and yarn in the world, manufacturers the most eco-friendly fibres in the world, Recron Green Gold fibres and Recron Green Gold Dope-Dyed (EcoD) Fibres & Tow, which are manufactured via eco-friendly processes of the highest standard. These fibres have been granted the ‘Global Recycle Standard’ from the internationally recognised Control Union Certificates, Netherland.

GHCL operates its home textiles facility in Vapi in the state of Gujarat, India. The facility overseas the production process from spinning to weaving to finished processed fabric, which is then made into duvet sets, sheet sets, comforters, to name a few.

Dr. James Hayward, president and CEO of Applied DNA said, “CertainT does what no other system can do – we can tag every single fibre and verify them through a defined and secure supply chain through systematic sampling, testing and tracking. Momentum with retailers and manufacturers across a variety of textiles is growing; we are pleased to see the CertainT platform and trademark now making its way onto retail shelves this year, giving consumers what they want.” (GK)
