Reliance Polymers' greenest fibres at Techtextil India

Reliance Polymers is set to launch what the company claims will be one of the world’s greenest and environment friendly sustainable fibres. “Recron GreenGold” is manufactured from post-consumer waste PET bottles at Techtextil India, the country’s largest exhibition for technical textiles and nonwovens which begins on September 24, trade fair organizer Messe Frankfurt said in a press release.

The Recron GreenGold fibres are said to be one of the greenest fibres of the world in terms of Co2e. In terms of sustainability, these fibres help in reducing dependence on fossil fuels, natural resources by using post-consumer waste PET bottles which would otherwise have gone for land fill, oceans, or incineration whereas in terms of performance, these fibers are just like the virgin polyester fibre.

These fibres also replace the wet colouring process in the production of dyed polyester staple fibre with a dry one, where the colors are added with the raw material instead of colouring the fibre in an additional dyeing process. As fibre comes out coloured, it eliminates the need of wet dyeing process all the way to the textile value chain from fibre to yarn to fabric, making it suitable for both apparel and technical textile players to offer certified green end-products and meet the increasing need for sustainable apparel from overseas buyers and brands.

Product introductions by other key Indian textile manufacturers like Welspun, SSM, A.T.E. Enterprise, Coir Board of India, ITEMA Weaving, Leister Technologies, Picanol India will also be shown at the exhibition.

Over 145 exhibitors from 10 countries will take part in the exhibition which will showcase the entire technical textile and nonwoven industry value chain with its 10 product groups and 12 application areas of Agrotech, Buildtech, Clothtech, Geotech, Hometech, Indutech, Medtech, Mobiltech, Oekotech, Packtech, Protech and Sporttech over the three days.

Alongside the exhibition, Techtextil India Symposium will bring subject experts in spheres of machinery, raw material, nonwoven and technical textile for an annual forum on September 25, 2015. (SH)
