International Enterprises Target Green Products, in Order to Protect the Planet

RECOTEX, SHINKONG’s green product, using 100% bottle recycled PET to produce eco-friendly polyester fibers which can reduce energy consumption and carbon emission in the process. Moreover, it also helps to reduce the abandoned bottles all over the world. This is how SHINKONG responds to the world trend, and this is how we help to protect our planet.

Strategic Alliance with “Thread”, produce recycled textile

Thread International PBC Inc, a worldwide famous sport good company, has established PET bottle recycle stations in less developed countries like Haiti. The abandoned bottles in marine debris were collected, and then go through a series of processes: cleaning, label removal, crushing, dehydration, which turn the bottles into PET flakes. A filtration process is used to remove different colors and impurities in the PET flakes, so that the clean flakes can be pelletized into recycled PET pellets. SHINKONG use these pellets to produce polyester fibers. The fibers then shipped back to Thread, weaving into fabrics. After dyeing and post processing, the fabrics are ready to use as the material of textile products, such as clothes, backpacks and caps. This is the cycle of recycled PET textile.


  • The recycled PET process can reduce 51% of energy consumption and 59% of carbon dioxide emission.
