Trevira incorporate both pre- and post-consumer recycled materials into their products. Examples include by-products of the manufacturing process such as residual polyester fibres (pre-consumer) as well as recycled PET bottles (post-consumer). They are also innovating with the development of products from biopolymers, a renewable raw material manufactured entirely from plant sugars.
Trevira recycled materials.
As the GRS is designed to cover a chain of custody end-to-end, Trevira’s client base also benefits from the scheme, as it allows traceability of the recycled Trevira products throughout the entire supply chain. Vitally, this gives the end consumer the reassurance that the product they purchase is comprised of a guaranteed minimum level of recycled material.
Volker Wellhäußer, Head of Marketing & Sales at Trevira says:
“With the GRS certification system, Control Union supports our company in its endeavors to manufacture better, more resource-efficient products and to achieve our demanding sustainability goals.”
Control Union originally developed the Global Recycled Standard Certification in 2008 before passing it over to the Textile exchange for ongoing management. We remain the leading Certification Body against the GRS standard. If you would like to find out more about how your business could benefit from the GRS Certification, please contact us.
