YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-03-31 15:00:00 – Bangkok

Teijin Polyester (Thailand), a Teijin Group subsidiary in Bangkok that manufactures and sells polyester fibre, have announced their collaboration with the Assumption College Primary Section (ACP), campus of Assumption College, a private school in Bangkok, Thailand in a recycling project of used PET bottles that starts this week.

Two reverse vending machines, which accept used PET bottles and pay the user a fee, will be installed at the ACP campus, and the school will encourage their use by teachers, faculty, employees, students and visitors.

Teijin Polyester (TPL) will collect used PET bottles from the machines and recycle them into polyester fibre, which it will use to produce T-shirts. The T-shirts will then be provided to youths who participate in football clinics organized by ACP and the Japan Dream Football Association (JDFA), an organisation that supports young football players in Southeast Asia.

The Teijin Group is steadily expanding business in Thailand, which has become a key hub in its global production operations. The collaboration with ACP is expected to strengthen awareness of Teijin’s environmental initiatives, as well as recognition of the Teijin brand in Thailand.

Teijin offers advanced solutions in the areas of sustainable transportation, information and electronics, safety and protection, environment and energy, and healthcare. Its main fields of operation are high-performance fibres, such as aramid, carbon fibres and composites, healthcare, films, resin and plastic processing, polyester fibres, products converting and IT.

The group has some 150 companies and around 16,000 employees spread out over 20 countries worldwide.
