Growing demand for sustainable products from consumers, governments and NGOs has made the use of recycled materials in fashion such as recycled polyester (rPET) tremendously valuable to brands as well as the environment. But today, there are some challenges related to the use of rPET, such as:
Rpet more expensive than virgin pet
(up to 50%)
Lack of reliable proofs
18 months research
BEST solution to determine IPA presence NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) that detects the presence of isophthalic acid [IPA] which is under patent
Be sure that there is recycled polyester in the rPET you buy
Communicate on it and support your sustainable strategy
Get the % of the rPET you buy
Be sure of what you pay for
The measurement uncertainty is not constant over the r-PET content range and can vary from +/-3% to +/-15% depending on the r-PET content.
