Textiles Intelligence says that establishment a solid FFrPET industry is critical for achieving environmental sustainability in the clothing industry

The establishment of a solid fibre-to-fibre recycled PET polyester (FFrPET) industry is critical if the textile and clothing industry is to achieve environmental sustainability, according to "Fibre innovations aid the creation of circular textile and apparel supply chains"— a 16-page report from the global business information company Textiles Intelligence.

PET polyester will remain by far the most widely used type of fibre in textile and garment production for the foreseeable future, despite strong growth in usage of other fibres—notably cellulosic fibres, natural fibres and those derived from bioplastics. In fact, polyester production is predicted to surpass 80 mn tons by 2030, which will account for well over half of total fibre production.

In order to establish routes to the production of FFrPET, a number of large-scale projects are now under way. These involve some major companies which have a number of advantages over start-ups in building a workable circular system for this material, including the size and scale of their operations and the funding which is at their disposal. As a result, the scaling up of the FFrPET industry is gaining considerable momentum.
