PUGI R.G. has always devoted a great interest to the environmental problems. With the purpose to contribute to the diminution of the exploitation of natural resources, PUGI has now decided to introduce a new range of fabrics:
This new fabric line is produced from recycled plastics and polyester already used and rejected, as bottles for water and drinks, packaging etc. The advantages of this choice are evident :
1) The quality of yarn got through Recycled bottles is the same as the one obtained from virgin raw-materials. Concepts of durability and quality are still assured.
2) Reduction of resources and energies necessary to the process of production, while using yarns produced in a Certified establishment, which is built on purpose of recycling plastic substances.
3) New oil is not used for making the recycled polyester.
4) Reduction of the energy consumption for the transport and the workmanship of the oil. It is enough to deliver the used bottles from the near sites to the establishment of recycling.
5) Here are some examples of saving values in the production of PET from recycling by comparison with PET for bottles: Around 1/10 of the energetic consumption for the production. Around the half of issues. Around 1/3 of consumption of water necessary for the production
6) Drastic diminution of the quantities of waste-material destined to the dump.
