NEWS:   8 April 2011, SEEU, Know- How in implementation of the Municipal PET Collection Program

What is PET?
PET stands for PolyEthylene Therephthalate, polyester used for packaging material.

What is PET used for?
PET is mainly used for beverage packaging such as mineral water and carbonated soft drinks.

How is PET made?
PET is made out of ethylene and paraxylene. Their derivatives (ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid) are made to react at high temperature and high pressure to obtain amorphous PET. The resin is then crystallised and polymerised to increase its molecular weight and its viscosity. The resulting resin is the raw material used to make containers.

Is PET recyclable?
Yes. One of the striking features of the material is its recyclability. Post-consumer containers are collected from households and processed to make raw material for new applications.
