Why recycle polyethylene waste?

Numerous plastic production waste is generated in textile manufacturing processes; these residues are classified as "non-hazardous" but, in any case, they are highly polluting. It is therefore mandatory by law to dispose of them properly. One of the most sustainable and effective ways is recycling. Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic polymer derived from a particular oil processing process. It is a relatively easy material to recycle, and therefore more environmentally friendly than other plastic materials. It is a material widely used in many different sectors including, obviously, the textile sector.


Providing timely withdrawal and an adequate LDPE recycling process makes it possible to obtain excellent quality secondary raw materials, ideal for being used again in numerous other applications, thus establishing a virtuous circle of sustainable economy.
