Green Fiber, part of the Green Group family, has announced that the business is transforming over 2 billion polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles each year into sustainable polyester staple fibre products for various industries. Green Fiber’s 100 per cent recycled polyester fibres produce 50 per cent less C02 emissions than virgin fibre alternatives.

Romania-based recycler and producer Green Fiber works in tandem with its sister company Green Tech, a prominent recycler in Europe, to recycle PET bottles, it said in a press release.

With an increased focus worldwide by businesses on reducing their carbon footprint and promoting a more sustainable image, Green Fiber’s 100 per cent recycled products offer a diverse range of industries such as hygiene, home textiles and more, the opportunity to confidently state that they are seriously committed to reducing their carbon footprints.

“As part of our regenerative role of both producer and recycler, we are proud to recycle over 2 billion PET bottles a year which are then transformed into sustainable fibres for an array of crucial industries. Furthermore, as we are the largest producer of 100 per cent PET recycled fibres in Europe with a range of products emitting 50 per cent less in C02 emissions compared to virgin fibre alternatives, we believe it’s now essential for sustainable businesses to use our fibres if they are serious in reducing their carbon footprints,” said Alina Elena Genes, general manager of Green Fiber.

Green Group is an important player in the European recycling industry and ranks as the number one recycler in Romania. The company is owned by Abris Capital Partners, a leading private equity investor in Central Europe, since 2016.
