Applied DNA Sciences has been working with GHCL and Reliance Industries since January 2018 to create CertainT®-verified recycled PET (“rPET”) bedding products.

The resulting bedding line, Rekoop, is the first to feature 100% source-verified plastic. Rekoop is expected to launch on Amazon this March.

Rekoop employs the CertainT platform to trace and authenticate the plastic being utilized in the Rekoop line of bedding products. Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL), India’s largest private company, the selected fiber-manufacturing partner, is using ecofriendly Recon® Green Gold fiber.

“RIL is the only company that has created a complete circle from creation of PET resin for making bottles, collection of discarded PET bottles, and converting them to Recron Green Gold Eco Friendly Polyester fibres for use by the downstream textile value chain that converts the fibres in to apparel and home textiles.”

“Recron® Green Gold fibres and tow demonstrate the lowest carbon footprint number and meet the most stringent environmental criteria for being a green fiber. The collaboration with Applied DNA and GHCL for making forensic science based Recron® Green Gold fibre further bolsters our thrust on quality and persuasion for highest standards.”

Mr. Hemant Sharma, Sector Head – Polyester, RIL
