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
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
Certification) using the methodology of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), in
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:
