China's recycled polyester fiber industry has witnessed an astonishing development. In terms of capacity alone, it had reached 7 million tons by the end of 2016.
Among them, the capacity of recycled polyester staple fiber has accounted for above 80% of the global capacity.
Duan xiaoping, president of the China chemical fiber association, said, " In spite of problems included fewer preferential policies and imperfect recycling system, China's regenerated polyester industry is still growing well.
Sun ya, vice-general manager of Cixi Jiangnan Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd., used several figures to describe the characteristics of the enterprise: 11 years, 80 thousand tons of regenerated polyester staple fiber, 95% of waste PET from more than 20 countries and 80% of the product export;
meanwhile, we are the one of the enterprises exporting the zero anti-dumping duty of polyester staple fiber in the United States, and 90% of the wastewater after treatment The energy consumption per unit product is 70% of the same enterprises in china.
However, due to the restriction of management level, technical equipment, market development and talent status, more manufacturers have made production discontinuous and weak in scale,
and the products are mainly POY, high grade knitted fabrics and high grade home textile fabrics, which are required by low grade cotton, stuffing and non-woven fabrics. The development of the home textile fabric is not enough.
Until now, it remains difficult for domestic consumers to accept the new consumption concept -- "waste PET-- recycled resources -- consumer goods".
For example, many consumers have expressed their concern about the use of waste polyester bottles and other home textile filling material, equating them with "black heart cotton".
Because of this, there are more export-oriented enterprises in the industry. Exporting recycled polyester products to Europe, the United States and other places with relatively perfect laws and regulations on the utilizing of regenerated resources, and selling them to local consumers who are willing to use recycled products seems much more feasible
