Ecotextile News reports on our report on textiles

A study we carried out on behalf of the RESYNTEX project has been featured in Ecotextile News.

Our study found that over 9 million tonnes of textile waste is sent to landfill each year in the EU.  

Even though great strides are being made towards reuse and recycling, there still remains a vast quantity of low value textiles that do not yet have a further use at the end of their first life.  The RESYNTEX project aims to find a valuable use for these otherwise waste textiles, through an innovative chemical recycling technologies for blended fibres.
