Whitepaper: Going green in the cleanroom
This whitepaper introduces the ReFIBE™ brand of wipes – a recycled polyester cleanroom wipe providing a sustainability story in a single-use world. Made from recycled plastic water bottles, these wipes are made from 100 percent knitted standard weight polyester with heat sealed edges.
“Reduce, reuse, recycle” is not just a concept; it is critical to the future of our planet. Much of the waste we generate is single-use plastic and since 1950, when plastic started to be used once and thrown away, over 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic waste has been generated.1 Of this, only 20 percent gets recycled or incinerated, with the rest ending up in landfill or oceans.1 Plastic Oceans International estimate that at least eight million tonnes of plastic ends up in oceans each year.2
