The Swedish Re:newcell developed an innovative recycling method for fibers with high cellulosic contents like cotton and viscose.
The material runs through a process during which it dissolves in a chemical solution. Eventually this results in the so-called “Re:newcell-pulp” which is suitable for use in currently available production processes. It mainly concerns production of textile fibers like Lyocell and viscose, but other applications are possible as well.
A breakthrough came in July 2014 when the first garment made from 100% Re:newcell-pulp was presented in Sweden. Re:newcell proved the technique works and moved on to the next phase: a pilot factory to upscale and improve production. As soon as the pilot factory is operational, Boer Group will be one of the textile suppliers.
