Virgin Polyester. Used polyester. End. CuRe. Repeat.

An energy-efficient solution for endless product to product transformation. To recycle infinitely, again and again and again.
Creating a fully circular polyester chain.

THIS IS OUR AMBITION

Discover our journey

Polyester waste issue

Today 70 billion kilo of virgin polyester is produced all over the world every year. 91% of the polyester in the world is not recyclable because it contains colors or additives.

Starting off with an idea

So what if we could recycle all polyester? Including the colored, mixed and contaminated waste? And rejuvenate used polyester up to 100%? What if we could find a real CuRe?

Discovering the solution

And that is exactly what we found! Together with Cumapol. DSM-Niaga, DuFor and Morssinkhof, in close collaboration with NHL Stenden University, we discovered a smarter and scalable solution. We call our new technology CuRe.

Pilot project

We have already joined labscale experience, capabilities and forces and we are building a 25 kt plant in Emmen for rapid scale-up, projected to start further testing in January 2020.

Finding partners

We aim to share our knowledge. We seek collaborations on a global scale. So the world can roll out our modular designed CuRe technology. Join the polyester recycle revolution!
