Strongly advocating the development of circular economy and building a "resource-saving and environment-friendly" society is a major strategic decision made by the CPC Central Committee as well as a basic national policy. The Party's 17th People¡¯s Congress also proposed "to build ecological civilization, basically establishing an industrial structure, growth mode, and consumption pattern to save energy resources and protect the ecological environment" and taking the "formation of large-scale circular economy" as a goal to realize a comprehensive well-off society. Recycled terylene industry as a typical green, circular economy on behalf of industry has outstanding advantages in energy conservation and environmental protection, recycling one-ton fiber and reducing more than three tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
China has the world's largest recycled polyester industry with production of seven million to eight million tons. Currently, the industry mainly takes the recycled bottle flakes as raw material and spinning waste silk, and blocks pulp as supplement; products are mainly recycled terylene staple fiber as well as such recycled filament as POY, DTY, FDY, BCF carpet yarn and industrial yarn used in cotton spinning and filling material, which will be processed into clothing, non-woven fabric, toy filling materials and other products.
