About PET 

The well-known abbreviation PET stands for polyethylene terephthalate, currently the most important thermoplastic polyester.
Nearly 80% of all polyethylene terephthalates are used in the form of PET bottles, as it is an excellent packaging material - particularly suitable for storing beverages, detergents, and cosmetic products. This is a worldwide trend. In the Czech Republic alone, about 60,000 tons of various PET bottles are used.
