Applied DNA Sciences To Launch Recycled PET
The Indian Textile Journal|March 2018

Fully source-verified, recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET post-consumer) is the clear plastic best known for packaging bottled water, and is the most widely recycled plastic in the world.

Applied DNA Sciences Inc is collaborating with GHCL Limited, a global manufacturer of home textiles, and Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), India’s largest private sector company and the first to feature in Fortune’s Global 500 list of ‘World’s Largest Corporations’ – to launch CertainT verified recycled PET (rPET) bedding products at New York Home Fashions week, to be held from March 19 to 22, 2018.

Fully source-verified, recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET post-consumer) is the clear plastic best known for packaging bottled water, and is the most widely recycled plastic in the world. GHCL will use Applied DNA’s CertainT platform in connection with PET- and/or recycled PET-blended bed sheets, pillowcases, and shams sold in-store or online in the United States. RIL is collaborating with GHCL and Applied DNA as the preferred fibre-manufacturing partner to use the CertainT platform for authenticity of recycled PET in bed sheets, pillowcases, and shams.

RIL manufactures the most eco-friendly fibres in the world, Recron Green Gold fibres and Recron Green Gold Dope-Dyed (EcoD) Fibres & Tow, which are manufactured via ecofriendly processes of the highest standard. These fibres have been granted the “Global Recycle Standard” from internationally recognised Control Union Certificates, Netherland.

Hemant Sharma, Sector Head - Polyester, RIL, said, “RIL is the only company that has created a complete circle from creation of PET resin for making bottles, collection of discarded PET bottles, and converting them to Recron Green Gold Eco Friendly Polyester fibres for use by the downstream textile value chain that converts the fibres in to apparel and home textiles.”
