The European Union has embarked on an ambitious €11 million research project, Resyntex that aims to produce secondary raw materials from textile waste.

The project's objective is to create a new circular economy concept for the textile and chemical industries through industrial symbiosis, members of the executive board said after their first meeting in Bled, Slovenia.

Resyntex joins the ranks of projects focusing on textile recycling innovations such as Worn Again, Re:newcell or Evrnu. It is led by Germany's Soex Group, which is active in high quality collection, sorting and processing of used textiles the global level.

“With Resyntex, we want to develop and demonstrate a new strategic design for textile recycling throughout a complete value chain. The focus is on reprocessing blends and pure components of unwearable textile waste,” said Pailak Mzikian, Head of Recycling and Sustainability at Soex Group said.

The project is being co-ordinated by the Institute for Environmental Protection and Sensors (IOS). It is divided into ten work packages, each of which focuses on a specific goal such as the development of industrial applications for recovered feedstocks or the assessment of the economic and environmental performance of newly developed processes.

The work package leaders are scheduled to meet again in June in Slovenia to evaluate the progress of the project IOS. “We look forward to bringing the project leaders together for our meeting in Slovenia. Also, we are excited to see the project's first reports and findings,” said Aleksandra Lobnik, R&D Manager at IOS. (SH)
