Today it becomes increasingly important to reduce CO2 emissions and protect our natural environment. Companies from all industries are asking themselves how they can deliver high-value products that don’t compromise the world around us. Circularity is no longer a nice extra. It can unlock significant value for both people and planet.
To realize a circular economy, we need the whole value chain to cooperate. At Teijin Aramid, we are driving the transition to circular entrepreneurship. Our mantra is to reduce our own pain, enlarge our customer’s gain and close the value chain. Specifically, we’re aiming for a fully sustainable aramid chain.
“ Our ultimate goal is a full sustainable circular aramid chain with a finite use of resources on the basis of 100% renewable energy.”
Gert Frederiks, CEO of Teijin Aramid
A second life for bullet-proof vests
In fact, we’ve been practicing recycling for over 20 years. Today, we can safely and securely recycle your end-of-life bullet-proof vests, giving them a second life. Thanks to their high aramid content and relatively clean condition, these vests can be efficiently and effectively recycled.
By returning your end-of-life vests and other materials to us, you’ll find a circular solution for your waste with guaranteed demilitarization and be better able to meet sustainability regulations. As such, we can build a better and safer world.
