A New Circular Economy Concept

RESYNTEX is a research project which aims to create a new circular economy concept for the textile and chemical industries. Using industrial symbiosis, it aims to produce secondary raw materials from unwearable textile waste.

Core Project Aims:

  1. Design a complete value chain from textile waste collection through to the generation of new feedstock for chemicals and textiles
  2. Improve collection approaches while increasing public awareness of textile waste and social involvement
  3. Enable traceability of waste using data aggregation. The collected data will evaluate the performance of the new value chains by means of a life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle costing (LCC)
  4. Develop innovative business models for the chemical and textile industries
  5. Demonstrate a complete reprocessing line for basic textile components, including liquid and solid waste treatment

We will keep you updated about the results of this project.
