Unique production experiment in progress: Turning waste cotton into new fiber for fashion industry

22 septiembre 2015

Old worn-out cotton clothing can be turned into new fibers for the textile industry using a cellulose dissolution technique. A group of Finnish organizations has launched a project in the course of which the new production technique will be tried out in practice at all stages of the value chain during 2015 and 2016. The first clothing line made of the new recycled fibers will be out towards the end of 2016.
