REcycling of waste ACrylic Textiles

Project description

New method to manage waste of acrylic fabrics

Extremely durable and able to repel water, acrylic fabrics are widely used for outdoor awnings and patio furniture. However, to have the required characteristics for such use, it is needed to apply chemical finishes to the acrylic fabrics, so as to increase the hydro and oil-repellency, the resistance to UV and to fire. This makes the management of acrylic textile waste tricky. The EU-funded REACT project is developing an eco-friendly process to remove the hazardous chemicals from the finishing substances (fluorocarbons, melamine and acrylic resins, anti-mould agents), which affect the secondary raw material purity and their management. A mechanical recycling process will follow to obtain second life fibre and fabrics. The goal is to reduce the amount of landfill and incineration of acrylic textiles by at least 30 % for the outdoor sector (awnings and furnishing).
