The textile waste material refinery

The proposal for The Bioeconomy Research Programme 2018–2020 consists of a number of programme areas containing a variety of research topics. The programme areas each address mutual questions and opportunities of great interest to a consortium of RISE customers. All programme areas are planned for three years.

In most communities globally, the wastehandling of textiles is left behind although theinterest in circular economy generatesincreased attention to this issue. The need fortextile recycling options is also linked to newbusiness cases for the textile-, recycling- andforest industries. The major task is to reviewthe best recycling routes for, primarilycellulosic, textile waste based on a materialrefinery view.We will also assess and enable the potential ofintegrating the used textile fractions withexisting recycling sectors; in particular thesectors of plastics and paper/packaging.The new products derived from this so-calledmaterial refinery should be of the same qualityas virgin material and based on the mostresource-efficient routes from the bestavailable technical records, life cycle and costassessments.
