At times of intense discussions about circular economy and sustainable solutions for manufacture of final products, we decided to take everything in our own hands, by creating something really significant.
That is how we came up with the idea for a new product, made out of up to 100% recycled PET for production of revolutionary fabric, that can be used for creation of FIBCs /big-bags/, geotextile, multiple use bags and many other products by having at the same time plenty of advantages, compared to the virgin materials, partially or entirely used for similar applications.
The usage of recycled PET helps for preservation of valuable raw materials, as well as for energy and greenhouse gas emissions reduction.
This is the reason why PETECOFLEX commissioned the first installation in Europe in the second half of 2019 for production of revolutionary rPET fabric, made out of 100% recycled bottles.
As a major supplier for the main part of the machine equipment, PETECOFLEX chose STARLIGER & CO GMBH – a leading European producer of high-tech solutions and machinery for manufacture of tapes, fabric and packaging, including for recycling of all types of plastic wastes.
PETECOFLEX is a consortium of several Bulgarian companies – leaders in plastic collection, treatment and recycling of plastic packaging wastes:
