Circular Glasgow, hosted by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, will connect with companies across the city helping them to open up new revenue streams, increase competitive advantage and realise financial savings using a range of practical tools.
Leading the way towards a circular fashion industry, the Mistra Future Fashion research program uses the expertise of the entirety of the textile value chain to highlight challenges and solutions to make fashion more sustainable. It publishes reports and peer reviewed articles that focus on how exactly this industry can be made more "circular".
Hilature Ferre mill has been recycling textile materials since 1947, but it is in 2015 that the company officially launched its Recover Upcycled Textile System for open end high quality recycled yarns.
Hilaturas Ferre collects and sorts textile waste resources from all over the planet, cutting and shredding them to produce new fiber to feed their industrial spinning process.
The research institute IVL has developed a new technology that may revolutionize textile recycling. It consists on sorting effectively clothes or other fabrics based on various types of fibres and it aims to increase efficiency and quality in textile sorting, therefore improving quality of recycled products.
Secondary raw materials have a place of their own in the economy, but sourcing them or selling them can prove difficult in the absence of a structured market. MarketPlaceHub offers great visibility and search options for those economic operators needing easier market identification.
Finland's post office has put in place a new recycling system to collect and separate its employee's valuable and re-usable work clothing that matches the new Posti brand, including mail deliverers’ shell jackets and trousers, winter coats and reflective work clothes.
Used nylons, mainly from the fishing industry, are gathered, reprocessed and turned into an innovative ecological nylon material, called econyl. They are afterwards sold for further use.
