What is Re Terra (R), a material that returns to the earth?
Reterra is a new biodegradable material in which approximately 30% of the thread component is made from sugar cane-derived vegetable polyester. It is decomposed into water and CO2 in approximately 12 months by microorganisms in the soil (compost under a specified environment). Polyester.
Currently, 95% of the approximately 500,000 tons of clothing waste generated annually in Japan are incinerated or landfilled. In contrast to such general incineration disposal, it is possible to obtain a CO2 reduction effect of approximately 40% by using Reterra to compost and circulate clothes. Tsukamoto Corporation develops a wide range of eco-friendly materials, from daily wear such as T-shirts and polo shirts to uniforms, with a focus on appearance.

about 1 year
First step: hydrolysis
・Microorganisms in compost secrete enzymes
・Enzyme, water, and fermentation heat act on Litera
・Hydrolysis occurs and the substance becomes low-molecular
Second step: biodegradation
・Microbes biodegrade low-molecular-weight compounds
・Exhausts water and carbon dioxide through microbial metabolism Company Information/Contact
