Mechanical textile recycling – Roadmap for Swedish processing capacity (a part of CITEX)

The project, which is is part of the innovation project Circular Textile Innovations – Sustainable system change in the textile industry (CITEX), will develop a roadmap for Swedish process capacity for mechanical textile recycling. This contributes to a circular ecosystem for textile waste with resource-efficient material utilization which will lead to reduced use of fossil raw materials.
