It has been only a few months since RESYNTEX was officially launched by EASME and already it is generating a buzz. Our project was announced alongside twelve other waste-related research initiatives at a kick-off meeting in December and publications from many sectors (circular economy, recycling, textiles and fashion) have covered RESYNTEX since. 

The coverage highlights how RESYNTEX will use industrial symbiosis to introduce circular economy models into the textile and chemical industries.

Here are a few notable examples:

Alan Wheeler, Director of the UK’s Textile Recycling Association (TRA), spoke to Recycling & Waste World. He said, “If we can develop new applications for recycled fibres, this will help to strengthen the sector as a whole and help it to realise the significant carbon and water benefits that can be achieved through diverting textiles from the waste stream.”

We are delighted with the enthusiasm that stakeholders are already showing. Sustainability Consult can be contacted for any media enquiries about RESYNTEX and its innovative research.
