Bullet closed loop system…

Wherever possible, Wellman International can recover up to 100% OF POLYESTER COMPONENTS from products that have reached their end-of-life stage

If these products have already been produced using Wellman fibres, we can then reintroduce them into our raw material streams - and so begins the entire fibre-making process once again

That’s what we call the Wellman Closed Loop System
