Recycled PET for Ford Ecosport mats

The automotive industry focus on sustainability introducing natural, recycled and circular materials in their productive process.
Ford pursued this strategy by using it for the production of the mats of its Ecosport model.
In fact, a regenerated PET yarn obtained from the recycling of more than 650 million plastic bottles was used to make the mats.
The circular material is trasformed into tiny flakes, heated and melted down before being formed in to fibres.
