There is a new way
re:newcell is a Swedish company that has developed a unique process for chemical recycling of cellulosic based textiles such as cotton and viscose.
re:newtextile (LIFE18 ENV/SE/000489) is a project between re:newcell and the LIFE programme, the European Union’s funding instrument for the environment and climate action. The project is spanning over the course of two years.
The aim of the funding is to scale up the production at the factory in Kristinehamn, Sweden – the world’s first industrial scale recycling plant for cellulose-based textiles.
The funding is mainly intended for machine and infrastructure investments, as well as test production and process optimizations for improved function, efficiency and product quality.
Long-term objectives with the project
With the support from the LIFE programme, re:newcell will be able to help shape the future of fashion and launch the world’s first circular garments in the new material Circulose.
That the investments in machine and infrastructure, test production and process optimizations will lead to improved function, efficiency and product quality.
The main goal of the project is to create the basis and conditions for building new larger factories in Europe and the rest of the world.
