A New Circular Economy Concept for Textiles and Chemicals

Europe needs to move towards a more circular economy to conserve its future environment and society. Currently, many of the materials contained in products are discarded as waste after use.

The textile industry is no exception. Much of its waste is landfilled or incinerated with a high environmental impact and at great cost. Valuable resources are lost.

RESYNTEX aims to change this with its research into innovative recycling processes. Post-consumer textile waste can be transformed into secondary raw materials, creating circularity and reducing environmental impact.
