Polyethylene Furanoate (a.k.a. PEF) is a polyester compound synthesized from the copolymerization of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) with monoethylene glycol (MEG). While both FDCA and MEG can be obtained from biomass, PEF is a 100% recyclable bio-based polymer. Having similar structure to the widely used polyethylene terephthalate (PET), PEF is considered a potential substitute for this best-selling polyester.
