What is PET?


PET (or PETE) short for Polyethylene Terephthalate, is a strong, lightweight and often transparent plastic. Same as other plastics, PET is made from oil and petrochemicals, which means it is energy exhausting material from beginning. Due to its thermoforming property, PET can be heated, melted and cooler down then make into different shapes and sizes again.



According to PlasticsEurope, 39.9% of total plastic demand in Europe is driven by the packaging sector – where the use of PET is very common. Like water bottles, domes for fruits and salads, containers are just few examples that made from PET plastic.


What does RPET means?


The “R”stands for the “recycled”, so called recycled PET. Virgin PET made from oil and petrochemicals, means every new PET made product used is time of natural resource exhausting.


The process of recycle PET, includes collecting, cleaning and remaking into products. Reusing PET plastic means at least 24% carbon emission has been reduced during the production process, thus RPET consider as an Eco-alternative solution for PET.

However, the first step to make sure this can be happened is that consumers would throw the recyclable plastics into appropriate waste bin. According to the Ellen McArthur Foundation, the global recycling rate for PET bottles number was approximated at 55% in 2012  with a potential yield of 70-78%.
