The majority of Freudenberg Politex products is produced using recycled raw materials, produced in-house thanks to vertically integrated processes. Polyester production starts with the recycling of post-consume PET bottles, which are selected, washed and reduced to flakes. The flakes are then used in the production of fiber or directly in the spinning process.


The very nature of the integrated production cycle permits not only the recovery of waste, which would otherwise be disposed of, but also a significant reduction in carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. Effectively, replacing virgin raw materials with recycled polyester of the same quality allows natural resources to be saved, consequently reducing the environmental impact, by eliminating the energy consumption linked to the process of producing virgin polyester.
