Regeneration of Cellulose to obtain IONCELL F (CL) fibres

Ioncell-F technology converts wood into textiles without harmful chemicals.

It is an environmentally friendly alternative to water-intensive cotton production. In addition, the process has the potential to revolutionise recycling of textile waste, turning waste cotton into upcycled high-quality, high-end fibre.

De-Repolymerisation to obtain recycled polyester (r-PET) fibres

Recycled PET pellets and an innovative catalyst are driving sustainable developments in polyester recycling.

There is a great need to convert material not qualified for reuse into high value virgin textile fibre, thereby realising the sustainable utilisation of textile resources.

Melt mixing process to obtain mix-PET pellets

Contemporary recycling methods often produce low value products, particularly with plastic products.

To develop a high value product from recycled plastic, recyclable Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) pellets have been developed using fabrics obtained from waste textiles.
