Circularity by Material Design
Valorisation of Recycled PET for the Development and Production of Nonwoven Fabrics
Valorisation of recycled PET and the introduction of biopolymers, as well as their subsequent transformation into antiviral and antifungal products for manufacturing and automotive industry, filters and spacer fabric coatings, and medical area (PPE and gowns).
Implementation of a new value chain by developing an industrial pilot line for extrusion/composition and micronization that allows a reduction in the consumption of virgin raw materials through the reincorporation of recycled PET from single-use packaging or the use of virgin or potentially recycled bio-based raw material.
