Shaoxing to be China's largest textile recycling base

May '16
Shaoxing city in eastern China's Zhejiang province is all set to become the country's largest textile waste recycling base, as two companies have joined hands for a project aimed at environment protection.
 
Two companies, namely, Zhejiang Jiaren New Materials and Zhejiang Lvyu Environment Protection, have announced their support to the Paojiang New District's commitment to building the country's largest textile waste recycling base, according to a China Textile Leader Express report.
 
As a result of this project, after two years, China's textile waste recycling capacity will increase of 600,000 tons per year, or one-third of China's total textile waste. At present, only about 1.5-1.6 million tons or around 10 per cent of waste textiles are reused in China.
 
Zhejiang Jiaren New Materials Company is a joint venture between Zhejiang Jinggong Holding Group and Japan's Teijin Group. The company uses Eco-circle technology, a chemical method to manufacture recycled polyester fibres. 
 
Zhejiang Lvyu Environmental Protection Company is a new project invested by Zhejiang Guxiandao Industrial Fiber Company. It is designed to use the technology and process similar to Eco-circle to turn waste textiles into polyester chips. These chips will be mainly sold to domestic textile mills for producing polyester filaments or staple. The project costs a total investment of 5 billion yuan. The first-phase project, with an investment of 1 billion yuan, broke ground in March this year. Over the next five years, this project will become the largest base for regenerated resources in China.
