THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS
It all starts when the PET bottles you’ve thrown are collected and bundled together in large bales.
CLEANING / SORTING
At their state-of-the art plant in Barabanki, North India,the world renowned Reliance Industries commences the process of manufacturing recycled PET fiber. The labels and caps are removed and the bottles are thoroughly cleaned and separated by color.
The bottles go into grinders where they are shredded into small flakes.
Applied DNA’s SignatureT molecular tag is applied to masterbatch pellets. CertainT verifies all tagged pallets.
The masterbatch is mixed in a pre-decided ratio with the PET flakes, which are then processed through an extruder and transformed into tagged r-PET fiber.
The fibers are spun along with cotton to make cotton / polyester blended yarn, at ICIL’s spinning facility.
WEAVING, PROCESSING, CUT & SEW
Fabric is then woven, processed, cut and sewn into finished bedding products at ICIL’s textile unit integrated home furnishings manufacturing plant in Vapi, West India.
The CertainT certified products arrive at retail, where customers, driven by a desire for proven sustainability and authenticity, can be assured of the integrity of their purchase.
