UXBRIDGE - Industrial thread specialist, Coats Group, has launched a new recycled polyester thread featuring an additive which is designed to reduce microplastic pollution in landfills and oceans.

The UK-based company says the new offering, Eco-B, incorporates an additive from Ciclo technology which makes synthetic fibres degrade like natural fibres to reduce microplastic accumulation.

Ciclo, an upstream solution provided by Sillicon Valley startup Intrinsic Advanced Materials and leading US yarn and fibre manufacturer Parkdale Advance Materials, is used to create biodegradable ‘spots’ in the polymer matrix, where naturally-occurring microbes in certain environments can break down the plastics just as they do with natural fibres.
