PET to Polyester

20/03/2017 at 22:22

Hey!

So I want to know if you guys think it would be possible to make polyester fabric from recycle PET at on a small scale.

I know that there are manufacturers that do this, but we are hoping that we can build the machines and kinda DIY it.

Its 3 basic steps, Make Pellets, Make the Fibers, and Make Fabric
The pellets are the easy part.

Does anyone have any info or know of anyone that has done this?

Someone was posting some ideas about this here https://davehakkens.nl/community/forums/topic/fabric/

From this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEVG4XoxDrg it seems to me they use something like an extruder but with a nozzle that looks like a shower head.
