PET bottle recycling project

May 23rd, 2017 / By: / Industry News, News

The Assumption College Primary Section (ACP), campus of Assumption College in Bangkok, Thailand, and Teijin Polyester (Thailand) Limited (TPL), a Teijin Group subsidiary in Bangkok that manufactures and sells polyester fiber, are collaborating on a PET bottle recycling project. It involves using two reverse vending machines that accept used PET bottles and pay the user a fee. TPL will collect used PET bottles from the machines and recycle them into polyester fiber, which it will use to produce T-shirts. Those shirts will be given to youth who participate in football clinics organized by ACP and the Japan Dream Football Association. The project is designed to encourage environmental education while developing young people through football.
