Decarbonizing supply chains through circular materials.
Ambercycle’s Molecular Regeneration
At Ambercycle, we're changing humanity's relationship with materials. We believe textiles and consumer goods are valuable materials that should be completely regenerative the way basic materials are in nature. Our technology enables true circularity by unlocking the creation of decarbonized raw materials from end-of-life goods. cycora®, our high-quality regenerated polyester, is our first product that offers the same strength and versatility as virgin polyester, at less than half the CO2 emissions associated with petroleum-based fibers.
Post-consumer and post-industrial textiles are shredded and fed into a series of reactors.
Mixed fibers are separated back into the base materials commonly found in clothing.
Additives like dyes and finishes are removed to further purify the raw materials at a molecular level.
The purified regenerated PET is reconstituted into virgin-grade pellets. Our first solution, cycora®, is a circular polyester.
The regenerated pellets are integrated into our partners' existing global supply chains to create the highest-quality product at a fraction of the environmental cost.
cycora® regenerated material offsets close to half the CO2 emissions associated with virgin-polyester production. Industry-wide adoption of our technology is predicted to offset more than 15% of apparel's overall global emissions. When you add in the CO2 avoided from incineration in landfills, the environmental benefits far outweigh traditional petroleum-based textiles.
