Products covered by the certification and verification include:-
1. Chips made with recycled polyester – 100% post consumer
2. Drawing textured yarn made with recycled polyester – 100% post consumer
3. Filaments made with 100% recycled polyester

Certificate details are as follow:-
Certificate No. C813095GRS – 01-2010

The concept of environmental protection is high embraced by citizens of the world and the thirst for 'green” products are driving the demand by consumers all over the world.
