Innovation projects

initiatives to

embrace textile recycling

Our ambition is to embrace and enable textile recycling initiatives by providing knowledge, experience and support. In 2009 we started as an open knowledge and innovation center for high-quality textile recycling. The immediate cause was the visible growth of textile waste steam, the expectation that the amount of textile waste will continue to grow and the lack of knowledge for high-quality reuse of textiles. Our strength now lies in bundling functionalities and knowledge that together create added value and ensure optimal reuse and recycling of textiles.

What is an innovation process?

Conducting long-term and experimental research into further improving the possibilities for reuse of textile raw materials. Testing and implementing new technologies. Initiating technology and product development. Knowledge-intensive, experimental and research-driven. In the long run.

The development of prototypes, demonstrations and tests are central. The innovation processes result in a new or improved product or process and are representative of the functioning under real conditions. The main goal of a project like this is to valorise knowledge and make further technical improvements to products and processes that may or may not exist.

An innovation process is all about creating and innovating high-quality new products, technology or processes for us
the textile industry that makes a substantial contribution to the circular economy and the transition to a low-carbon economy.
