Upcycling end-of-life textile pays off
Each year, 100 million tons of new fibers are used globally by the textile and clothing industry to produce materials like wool, cotton, polyester, acrylic, and nylon. This is highly polluting and unnecessary. High-quality reuse, preferably circular, offers a solution, as it yields the largest CO2 reduction of all waste streams while preserving the quality of textile fibers. Wear2® Ecostitching Technology as a key technology makes it possible to quickly disassemble clothing, after which selected textile monostreams are effectively prepared to be processed into sustainable clothing again. Recycled fabrics will become the main basis for new clothing, and end-of-life textiles will transform from waste to financial value, becoming a circular investment instead of a cost.
