Recycling PET to reduce the impact on climate
One metric ton of recycled PET flakes is equivalent to 1.5 metric tons of CO2 emissions avoided. The "bottle-to-bottle" process eliminates the melting stage in recycling, saving more than 31,000 tons of oil and close to 113,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent annually. Manufacturing a plastic bottle with recycled PET rather than virgin PET reduces CO2 emissions by 70%.
