Pioneering innovation for the textile industry
Studies show that around 400,000 tons of textile waste are accumulated in Germany alone per year. To date, only a fraction of this figure is recycled because high-quality recycling of clothes was recently considered virtually impossible from a technical standpoint because more than 90% of textiles are made of different and mixed fibres. Thanks to its sophisticated in-house tool, PK-Techventures was, however, able to identify several promising technologies and methodologies.. These processes separate the blend of cotton and polyester, previously considered a no-go in terms of recycling, and then makes them recyclable as separate raw materials again.
