Demonstration and launch of high performance, biodegradable, regenerated New Cotton textiles to consumer markets through an innovative, circular supply chain using Infinited Fiber technology

Project description

Textile waste transformation into new fibres

The textile industry is among the most polluting industries, generating 1.2 billion tons of CO2 per year since huge quantities of textile waste are landfilled or burned. However, existing solutions cannot resolve the problem, and there is a lack of feasible alternatives in the market. As the production of textiles is expected to rise by 63 % by 2030, the textile industry has agreed with government institutions, environmental organisations and consumers to move towards sustainable production and consumption. The EU-funded New Cotton project proposes a cellulose carbamate technology to allow the transformation of textile waste into cost-efficient, cotton-like fibre with superior qualities. The technology can process cotton-rich textile waste, including mixed fibres, and other cellulose-based waste feedstocks into new fibres and textiles.
