NewLifeCopP.jpg Newlife™ is the product of an ambitious project developed by Sinterama. This technologically innovative platform is certified through a comprehensive production approach and offers a wide range of excellent quality, high performance recycled polyester yarn, made from post-consumption plastic bottles collected in norther n Italy.

The production process is 100% Made in Italy and 100% traceable.

Newlife™ got the following certifications:
  • Oekotex Cert. n° 005339.0 - Centrocot

  • Global Recycle Standard - Textile Exchange

  • Newlife™ just got the LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) study by ICEA – Istituto per la Certificazione Etica e Ambientale (Institute for Ethic and Environmental Certification) which inspects and certifies firms respectful for the environment, workers’ dignity and collective rights. ICEA provides organic producers with certification that is valid for the world market, recognised by foreign certification bodies and accredited by national and international institutions such as GOTS and Textile Exchange.

Recycled polyester, which requires fewer processing stages, consumes less energy during the production process, resulting in a considerable reduction in carbon emissions compared with virgin
polyester.

Newlife™ uses a mechanical process to transform bottles into a polymer,
without the use of chemicals which could be harmful for the environment.

According to a study carried out by the ICEA (Institute for Ethic and Environmental
Certification) using the methodology of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), in compliance
with ISO 14040, ISO 14044, producing 1 Kg of Newlife™ allows a saving in
terms of consumption of energy resources and CO2 emissions which, compared
to virgin polyester fibers production, results in:

Consumption
