Polycycle – A recycled polyester yarn by AYM Syntex Limited

Nature is a miracle we depend upon and growing concerns about sustainability have increased awareness and the usage of recycled material. A recent research shows that packaged drinking water bottle has the following implications:

  • Packaged drinking water bottle takes 1000 years to biodegrade and if incinerated produces toxic fumes.
  • Packaged drinking water bottle generates 121 million waste a year and only 25% of this waste is recycled per year.
  • The waste kills as many as one million birds and a hundred thousand marine mammals each year.
  • The number of bottles thrown away can encircle the earth 4 times

At AYM Syntex Limited, we take into consideration the sustainability factor and are focused towards finding innovative solutions that are environment-friendly and sustainable. With a lot of careful research and time invested we at AYM Syntex Limited introduce Polycycle.

Polycycle is a recycled polyester yarn born through a unique process using a proprietary technology that is eco-conscious and future-oriented. It eliminates toxic and harmful chemicals across the textiles production chain and the performance is equivalent to a virgin polyester. It is a carcinogenic chemical free product

The process of developing Polycycle involves few steps:

Salient Features:

2kgs of Polycycle saves:

  • 1 full gallon of Gasoline
  • Drinking water, that is enough for 1 person for 5 days
  • Greenhouse gas emission of a hybrid car across 15 miles
  • 360 hours of energy consumed by a light bulb
  • 120 bottles from going into a landfill
  • 33-53% energy consumption
  • 6% carbon emission

Facts and figures:

  • A new study confirms that recycling plastic, specifically PET results in significant savings in energy and reduction in greenhouse emissions. More energy is saved by recycling plastics than is gained by burning them.
  • According to UK’s Waste & Resources Action Program (WRAP), a recycled PET requires between 10 and 40% of the energy used to produce virgin PET.
  • Recycling saves 2 tons of CO2 equivalent emissions per tons of plastic in comparison to incineration. (2008 Life Cycle Analysis of Management Options for Mixed Waste Plastics)
  • Recycling can reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses by an estimated 30 to 70 percent.

Polycycle is categorized under BCF yarn.  and Textile yarns which has the following advantages:
