Chemical Recycling versus CuRe Polyester Rejuventation
CuRe Technology an end-to-end recycling process
Together with Cumapol, Morssinkhof and Niaga we have developed the CuRe Polyester Rejuventation Technology, CuRe Technology will focus on providing an end-to-end recycling process for used polyester, rejuvenating it via a partial depolymerisation process into high-quality, ready-to-use rPET which can replace virgin PET from fossil-derived sources. The depolymerization is not going further than necessary for thorough purification and decolourization. In the same process the molecular weight is increased to produce a useful polyester again. An energy-efficient solution for endless product to product transformation. Creating a fully circular polyester chain.
Continuous depolymerisation process
CuRe enables a continuous polyester recycling process for various used and contaminated polyesters - including packaging materials and textile products - and cleans the original polyester material from contaminants and color. 4 Specific type of polyester product streams will be treated: PET trays, Colored PET bottles, Polyester carpet and Polyester textiles.
