How is PET recycled?

Most PET is recycled mechanically. The used PET is cleaned, physically broken down into flakes and made into bales. These bales are then sold on the open market.

Some PET is recycled chemically. It is re-processed back into its constituent materials.

What is recycled PET used for?

Most recycled PET is turned in to polyester fibres, which can be used to produce a wide variety of textile products from fleeces to sails. PET can also be recycled to produce the raw material for making new plastic and PET products. This has a huge energy saving compared to producing plastics from raw materials.
