DA RUN FA

Da Run Fa Chemical Fibre (Pty) Ltd is a producer of regen polyester staple fibre and PET straps for packaging that is supplied to both the local and the international markets. Their manufacturing process consumes about 2000 tons of Regen PET per month as feedstock; and by creating this sustainable demand for regen PET, they add to the PET value chain that gives impetus to the development of the circular economy in South Africa. Their innovative use of recycled PET bottles creates a lucrative purpose for a product which would otherwise have reached the end of its life cycle. This also indirectly impacts the economy as marginalised communities innovatively start collecting recyclables and develop recycling business or co-ops that create job opportunities for the unemployed.
