Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), the world's biggest integrated polyester producer has recently collaborated with Kivanc Tekstil, a Turkey-based major woven fabric supplier, for the production of RElan GreenGold, a sustainable and innovative fabric 2.0.
As per the agreement terms, Kivanç will be the exclusive distributor of RIL's Recron GreenGold fibres to spinners, yarn manufactures and knitters across Turkey. The partnership will allow RIL and Kivanç to offer eco-friendly textile solutions to brands and retailers, sourcing their requirements from Turkey, to meet the ever-growing demand of environment friendly apparels, said RIL in a statement.
“With RIL’s technological edge in sustainable offerings merging with Kivanç’s manufacturing prowess, we are certain to come up with stunning innovative fabrics to meet the growing demand for high-quality eco-friendly apparels,” said Gunjan Sharma, Chief Marketing Officer (Polyester Division), RIL.
Made from recycled PET, R|Elan GreenGold uses much less water in manufacturing and 90 per cent of the used water is recycled. It uses bio-fuels and provides end-to-end traceability throughout the supply chain, right from PET bottles to fibres. Pertinent to mention here that Mukesh Ambani led RIL recycles 2.2 billion PET bottles a year and is one of the largest recycler of PET bottles in India.
Kıvanc, on the other hand, produces 18 million metres of blended fabrics per annum across its vertically integrated plant including spinning, weaving, dyeing, printing, and finishing. Its yield comprises a wide range of blends straddling polyester, cotton, viscose, linen, tencel, modal and wool.
“The tie up with RIL will help the company achieve its goal towards implementation of innovative and sustainable environmental approaches in all stages of production,” said Ziya Kivanç, CEO of Kivanç Tekstil.
