The project was kicked off in April 2022 and will end early 2024 by successfully completing textile-to-textile recycling trials for cellulosic and polyester textiles. Currently in the pilot phase, ACPE is pressure testing the circular systems of textile-to-textile recycling that were researched, mapped, modeled, and linked during 2021. For the cellulosic trials, cotton-rich post-consumer textiles are being recycled mechanically, whilst for the polyester trials polyester-rich textiles are being recycled chemically and thermo-mechanically into new fibers and yarns. Updates and insights will be shared through Accelerating Circularity’s LinkedIn and our LinkedIn page, as well as ACPE’s Website.
