How to Turn a Bottle into Products Below are a few steps to explain the process:
Step 1 BOTTLE PROCESSING: Plastic bottles are collected and sent to waste separation points throughout the city, where they are packed into 2X2 meter cubes. Cubes are then shipped to the factory, where they are manually processed to remove bottle cap and label
Step 2 BOTTLE SHREDS: High grade and qualified bottles are then washed, sterilized and shredded into pieces
Step 3 rPET PELLETS: Shreds are melted down into PET Pellets – now they share the same form as virgin plastic pellets.
Step 5 rPET YARN: Pellets are further melted and pulled into strands and spun into Yarn.
Step 6 rPET FABRIC: Yarn are then shipped to Fabric manufacturing factory to be made into rPET fabric
Step 7 rPET CLOTHING: rPET is fabric is bought by fashion houses to make end consumer products like clothes and bags.
