Turkish yarn maker brings recycling facility onstream
The Ã¢??recoSTAR universal 165 H-VAC iV +Ã¢?Â from Starlinger, put into operation in May 2021, is said to process clean production waste from in-house polyester fibre production together with washed post-consumer PET bottle flakes in a 50/50 ratio. The machine maker noted that the system Ã¢?? the first of its kind in Turkey Ã¢?? can process a mixture of input material and 100% polyester fibre waste or 100% PET bottle flakes.
Korteks, said to be the largest integrated polyester yarn manufacturer in Europe, is using the polyester regranulate for a new product line made of 100% reclaimed material and marketed under the name Ã¢??TAÃ ? RebornÃ¢?Â.
At its 335,000 mÃÂ² production site, Korteks makes 170,000 t/y of yarn, which is said to cover almost 20% of Turkish demand. Polyester yarns from the company, a member of TurkeyÃ¢??s Zorlu Group, are used in many areas, including home textiles, clothing, and garden furniture.
Other sectors served by the Zorlu Group include real estate and energy generation, and Turkish member company Vestel Elektronik (Manisa; www.vestelinternational.com) makes white goods (see Plasteurope.com of 17.06.2021).21.09.2021 Plasteurope.com [248582-0]
