As the largest producer and recycler of PET in the Americas, Alpek is on the cutting edge of building a sustainable future. Our commitment to a truly circular economy includes improving recycling technology and increasing the production of recycled PET (rPET) products with a goal of reaching 15 billion bottles recycled and repurposed per year.

Polyester value chain
As part of the Polyester value chain, we manufacture Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) by oxidizing Paraxylene (Px). From there we make Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) by combining PTA with Monoethylene Glycol (MEG). Finally we transform recovered PET bales into recycled PET (rPET) flake and pellet.
