Cumapol has been selected as one of the finalists of ‘Rabobank Duurzame Innovatie Award 2019’. The price is awarded to companies with innovative solutions.

Cumapol is participating with the CuRe polyester Rejuvenation Technology, an energy-efficient recycling solution for colored polyester and endless product to product transformation. Together with DSM-NiagaDuFor and Morssinkhof, in close collaboration with NHL Stenden University, we discovered a smarter and scalable solution. To create a fully circular polyester chain.

We want to CuRe any type of used polyester by removing the color and converting it into clear pellets with the same properties as virgin grade polyester.​ CuRe Technology, has strong own core technology and also allows for modular add on other technologies, giving us flexibility to choose the best route depending on the type of polyester waste. We have already joined labscale experience, capabilities and forces and we are building a pilot plant in Emmen for rapid scale-up, projected to start further testing in January 2020.
