Company Summary :



PET - Polyethylene Terephthalate. This is the technical name for the every-day plastic drinking bottle from which you drink bottled water or carbonated soft drinks.


Our PET-Yield™ product is the disruptive solution that enables PET bottle manufacturing companies to meet EU recycling targets. It also improves the manufacturer's carbon footprint, and helps them gain significant process efficiencies.


Key highlights:


Our PET-Yield™ Liquid Process Additives and Control Technology, is a means to reinstate the lost mechanical properties of recycled PET bottle raw material – back up to the performance level of virgin raw material.


Currently the PET bottle manufacturing industry struggles to include recycled material in their bottle manufacturing lines. PET-Yield™ allows for increasing and variable amounts of recycled PET to be mixed with virgin PET to enable a perfectly sound bottle to be made.


Product development carried out by EU approved technology gateway colleges (Athlone Institute of Technology and Technological University Dublin).


Full patent protection policy in place.


Strong management team, having over 40 years combined experience in the polymer industry.
