Srichakra helps RIL to set up recycled PSF unit in AP
Srichakra Ecotex India Pvt Ltd will build and operate exclusively for Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) the new recycled polyester staple fibre (PSF) – Recron GreenGold and PET flakes wash-line in Andhra Pradesh.
Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), India’s largest private sector company, is doubling its PET recycling capacity by setting up a recycled polyester staple fibre (PSF) manufacturing facility in Andhra Pradesh. The move is part of RIL’s commitment to lead the industry on circular economy, enhance its sustainability quotient and bolster the entire polyester and polymer value chain.
As a part of this endeavour, Srichakra Ecotex India Pvt Ltd will build and operate exclusively for RIL the new recycled PSF – Recron GreenGold and PET flakes wash-line in Andhra Pradesh.
RIL’s initiative to more than double its recycling capacity to 5 billion post-consumer PET bottles will ensure India maintains over 90% recycling rate. RIL is focusing on sustaining India’s post-consumer PET recycling rate which is currently the highest in the world.
RIL will empower entrepreneurs to divert post-consumer used packaging from landfills, setup recycling facilities and create wealth from waste throughout the country. RIL is driving various initiatives such as Fashion for Earth in partnership with Lakmé Fashion Week and the United Nations in India, Hub Excellence Programme and Circular Design Challenge to inculcate circularity and sustainability concepts in polymer, textile and fashion industries.
