Textile Recycling EXcellence

Project description

A circular system for recycling Europe’s household textile waste

Less than 1 % of materials used to produce clothing is recycled into new clothing. From January 2025, a directive requires 27 Member States to implement a separate household textile waste collection scheme and comply with rising minimum recycling objectives. Legislation is not enough to deal with the issue. Creating a circular system for post-consumer textile waste faces many challenges, including a lack of EU-wide standards for collecting and sorting textile waste across countries, inaccurate composition claims, variable material quality and a lack of reliable data across value chain stakeholders. The EU-funded T-REX project aims to demonstrate how household textile waste can become a new feedstock and business model for the textile industry by engaging key actors across the entire value chain.
