Synthetic fibers are fibers made by humans with chemical synthesis, as opposed to natural fibers that humans get from living organisms with little or no chemical changes. They are manufactured from plant-derived cellulose and are thus semisynthetic, whereas others are totally synthetic, being made from crudes and intermediates, including petroleum, coal, limestone, air, and water.

Polyethylene terephthalate wastes processing will help improve the country's environment.
