Texen supports its partners in their sustainable innovation efforts

In 2021, to meet Chanel's environmental requirements, Texen is adapting its industrial process. The company is proposing to work with RPET, a material derived from the recycling of PET plastic bottles, and is making its agile Smart lines available to automate and optimize production.

Thanks to the polycondensation* process, Texen was able to design a new, eco-responsible cap for Chanel's Le Lift and Hydra Beauty skincare lines, which retains the same mechanical and sensory properties as the original.

As part of the global approach shared with its partner to reduce environmental impact, this cap contains a black colorant specifically developed to make the part detectable by optical sorting, thus facilitating recycling and enabling better management of the product's life cycle.

The modularity and versatility of the Smart lines ensure Chanel a controlled production process. By managing the entire design process, Texen can manufacture the raw material and produce a finished, varnished piece in less than 20 minutes.

* Polycondensation is a chemical reaction that rebuilds molecular chains broken during the recycling process, enabling them to become polymers again. Polycondensation restores the basic mechanical and chemical characteristics of the finished product, guaranteeing its edibility.
