RECYCLING

PET is a plastic widely used in the manufacturing of water bottles. PET is a sophisticated polymer that after being used as packaging, can be recycled into a multitude of new products ranging from insulation to fibre fill for duvets to food grade packaging. As a result, it is one of the most sought-after “waste” products.

The recycling process helps with the creation of employment, adds to domestic economic growth, reduces our reliance on virgin PET and diverts hundreds of thousands of bottles destined for a landfill.

Recycling 1 ton of PET bottles can save up to 1.5 tons of CO² emissions.

Recycling plastic bottles decreases the need for raw materials and saves energy.

PET is either recycled through mechanical recycling or de-polymerisation. During mechanical recycling, bottles or preforms are shredded into flakes which once washed and processed, are ready to be used or blended with virgin polymer for use in other applications. The de-polymerisation process breaks up the polymer molecule and then added back to the polymerisation process to create an end-product comparable to virgin resin. Currently, the main outlet for the recycled PET is the fibre market but other applications include strapping, sheeting, ceiling insulation, geyser blankets and various other building material. It can also be used in the making of polar fleece.

Recycling your plastic water bottles comes with many benefits for both the economy and the environment. When you recycle, you are fighting global warming, conserving energy, and creating new jobs. These are just a few of the many benefits of recycling water bottles. No matter where you live or what your favourite beverage is, be sure to keep recycling your plastic bottles
