LIBOLON scores to be 1st GRS Polyester Supplier
Jun '10
The textile manufacturer, LIBOLON, became the first company in Taiwan who received the Global Recycle Standard (GRS) certificate from Netherlands-based certification body Peterson Control Union for recycled polyester.

The GRS is for companies that ask for independent verification of their own claims as to the amount of recycled material they use in a specific set of products. In LIBOLON's case, the product that came under scrutiny was LIBOLON's RePET polyester.

RePET material comes from 100% recycled bottles, and the whole process including waste water treatment and chemical usage meets the standards of Oekotex 100. The chips and yarns are made from 100% post-consumer recycled polyester.

The certified products 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 recycled polyester 100%.
Certificate No.: C813095GRS-01.2010
Registration No.: CU813095

LIBOLON has said that a global thirst for greener products is pushing up demand for RePET. In 2009, orders for RePET yarns reached 1,323 tones while LIBOLON's clients ordered 1.5 million meters of finished RePET polyester fabric.

The manufacturer said on the announcing news that GRS certification meant it could give its downstream customers the word over a guarantee that the RePET products they purchase are “100% green”.

LIBOLON was jointly developed by Lealea Enterprise Co., Ltd. and Li Peng Enterprise Co., Ltd. It is one of the largest producers of synthetic textiles in Asia offering global services cover both nylon and polyester fields. LIBOLON's services range from polymerization, spinning, weaving, dyeing, and all the way to post-finishing process.
