Teijin Frontier Introduces Technology for Recycling Polyester

Teijin Frontier Co. Ltd., the Teijin Group’s fibres and products converting company, has developed a new foreign material removal technology to eliminate polyurethane (PU) elastomer fibres from discarded polyester apparel.

The technology features a new processing agent used during the pre-treatment phase of the chemical recycling process, which helps improve the quality of the recycled polyester fibre that is derived from clothing containing PU elastomer fibre.
