The mission of Cumapol is to become the most sustainable thermoplastic polyester production facility of the world by combining the different recycling technologies, closing the polyester loop and prodcuing high performance polyesters without using fossil based chemicals. The company is continuously expanding and improving its processes and know-how based on mechanical recycling of PCR bottle grades. Because mechanical recycling has the highest CO₂ reduction figures Cumapol is also exploring mechanical recycling of other polyester waste streams like polyester textiles and carpets. The next step is the start of the CuRe (Polyester Recycling Technology) project, this technology makes it also possible to use bio-based monomers to even further reduce the CO₂ footprint of polyester. Cumapol's ultimate goal is to reach a zero CO₂ footprint polyester.
