Chemical Recycling of PET
PET Refine Technology Co., Ltd. (PRT) is located in Kawasaki, Japan and has remarkable chemical recycling technology which is characterized by purification of BHET,which is the monomer of PET.
We have been manufacturing recycled PET at 20,000 ton/year since 2008. PRT became a group company of JEPLAN, Inc. from April 2018.
We are preparing for the development of possibility of new applications for recycled PET.
Backed by expanding demand for recycled polyester from global apparel brands, we will restart plant operations promptly and produce polyester pellets for use in fibers, not in PET bottle.
Subsequently, we will carry out capital expenditure to make used clothing a raw material, with a plan to engage in the recycling of PET bottles and clothing by 2020. Moreover, we are planning to be utilized as a technology development site, where a variety of recycling technologies will be verified in extensive collaborations with related parties from around the world aimed at establishing a circular economy.
We aim to contribute to the formation of a recycling society as a community space for running joint clothing collection projects and workshops in partnership with consumers, who have a leading role in the circular economy.
