It is estimated that cotton has reached is maximum production per year. It is also estimated that there will be a global shortage of cellulosed-based fibres of 5 million tons by the year 2020 due to a growing demand. Through re:newcell's recycling process of cellulosic-based textile fibres, we can prolong the usage of the resources we have today. This innovation has the potential of minimizing textile waste and at the same time increasing the textile production in an environmentally friendly way.
re:newcell’s textile recycling technology transforms a high cellulosic portion fabric into recycled dissolving pulp (“re:newcell pulp”). The re:newcell pulp can then be fed into the commercial textile production chain. The process is cheap and does not require any chemicals that are environmentally harmful. Tests made on textile fibres from the re:newcell pulp have shown to be of a higher quality in comparison with the textile fibre made from other dissolving pulp made from wood.
