Trevira, supplier of the complete range of textile polyester products, has introduced a sustainable brand-Trevira Sinfineco. This innovative and responsible label can be used by textiles that contain sustainable Trevira products. Trevira is conscious of its responsibility for an intact environment and has advocated the recycling of raw materials and waste.

"We at Trevira wish to preserve the environment and at the same time work to create value. These are the criteria of our sustainability concept. Creation of the new brand is therefore only a logical step, one that enables customers to label their sustainable Trevira products as such," said Trevira CEO Klaus Holz.

The company conserves resources and maintains value in the post-consumer and pre-consumer recycling stages. In post-consumer recycling, Trevira offers filament yarns consisting of 100 per cent recycled PET bottles. "Our parent company Indorama manufactures very high quality recycled chips from PET bottles. Since only transparent PET bottles are used in Thailand, the flakes and chips are of a particularly good and very uniform quality. The recycled chips, fibres and filaments from Indorama bear the GRS certificates and RCS-NL. Trevira processes the regranulate made by Indorama from bottle flakes into filament yarns consisting 100 per cent of recycled material," said Holz. The filament yarns are available in titres 167 and 76 dtex normal polyester. Alongside technical applications, they are used in the automotive and apparel sectors.

In pre-consumer recycling, residual materials resulting from the manufacture of polyester fibres and filaments in Bobingen and Guben, dependent on the manufacturing step, are processed in the agglomeration plant and restored to become serviceable primary material. The recyclates are then fed back to our fibre and filament spinning mills, to be made into new top-quality products.

"In fibre production, there occurs in the manufacture of tow a small proportion of tow that cannot be used for converting and has to be cut out. Instead of selling this material as waste, it is cut up, pressed into balls and then carded / combed by a partner, resulting in a 1A quality product. The GRS certification is requested for this. As with converter tow from new material, the recycled tow is mostly incorporated into polyester wool blends (55 per cent PET / 45 per cent wool), which are used primarily in corporate wear and uniforms," explained Holz.
