Recycled plastic as a basis for intelligent duvet filling will ensure greener sleep and a healthier sleep



Recycled plastic as a basis for intelligent duvet filling will ensure greener sleep and a healthier sleep. The project has developed a method for functional recycling of polyethylene in duvet filling. The method includes blending of encapsulated PCM into recycled, immersed polyethylene, which can subsequently be comminuted and used as fibers with dun in Danish-produced sleeping products.

The project showed that it was possible to make quilts with an intelligent filling based on 75% recycled plastics, which customers and end consumers were interested in reducing where also the business basis is ok. The basis for introducing two new product series is thus established. The report describes fiber manufacturing tests, production tests for the production of quilts with the new fiber material and consumer tests. The project was performed by Quilts of Denmark and Fossflakes.
