Recycled PET resin is a beneficial manufacturing feedstock that can be reprocessed and reused in bottles repeatedly. Instead of landfilling, PET is recycled and then use as a raw material for making new products. Recycled PET reduces the greenhouse gas and carbon emissions impact and it requires minimal energy to manufacture the new product.

Recycled PET has various applications, from manufacturing clothing like jeans, jackets, and sportswear, to automotive manufacturing like seat covers and also in the manufacturing of new bottles. The global recycled PET market is expected to witness significant growth due to increasing awareness of sustainability, government initiatives to reduce plastic waste, and more. In addition, beverage brand manufacturers are aiming for 100% recycled PET bottles for circular plastic packaging solutions are also positively impacting the market in near future.
