Chinese textile firms invest in recycled fibre technology

In view of the surge in old clothing, many Chinese textile enterprises have sighted a business opportunity and are actively exploring recycled fibre technology.
 
For example, in August last year, Jiabao New Fiber Group Co. Ltd. and the Teijin Group jointly invested 1.5 billion yuan to build the domestic polyester chemical recycling plant. The project is mainly for chemical treatment of used polyester clothing and realization of recycled fibres.
 
Recycling old clothing not only protects the environment, but also creates economic value. According to experts, one ton of recycled old clothes can produce 0.99 tons of cotton yarn, saving the equivalent of 0.8 tons of cotton textile raw materials. It also saves 35 percent energy in production of non-woven fabrics and 20 percent energy in production of cotton yarn.
 
The recycling companies do not use the recycled fibre for the production of basic products in contact with the human body. For instance, the recycled fibres are used in the production of automotive accessories, construction, packaging materials, recreational sports, protective equipment and other industrial fields.
 
The recycling of old clothes follows a different texture, colour processing and reuse, according to experts. Some of the uses of recycled cotton can be to wrap trees in winters, or car mats for vehicles.
