Chemical recycling of man-made cellulose fibers (MMCF) (a part of CITEX)

The project investigates how MMCF can be included in circular non-toxic flows. The project will investigate the decolorization and recycling of MMCF through several different recycling routes. The various routes will include recycling to new textile fibres or packaging, but also new routes for recycling MMCF to known chemical building blocks.
