About the Presentation topic: Ecodear
Ecodear® is a partially plant-based polyester.
Polyester is conventionally made from 100% crude oil. In Ecodear®, the ethylene glycol needed in the polymerization is instead made from molasses, a bi-product of sugar production. Chemically Ecodear® is just like conventional polyester and is therefore fully recyclable.
