DUBAI – At an industry conference geared towards sustainable innovation in textile manufacturing, leaders from across the United Arab Emirates’ and Japan’s public and private sectors revealed plans to establish a plant in the city of Dubai that will leverage a solution developed to upcycle old clothes into raw material pellets.

Through initial investment of an estimated US$30 million, facilitated by a public-private-partnership, the new facility is seen as a way for textile manufacturers to shift their dependence from hydrocarbons-based pellets to more sustainable technologies such as that presented by JEPLAN (Japan Environmental Planning).

JEPLAN’s PET resin is cultivated from a chemical recycling process that is said to retain the quality offered by petroleum made products while reducing CO2 emissions and the use of oil.
